Top 20 tweets on Hines Ward’s retirement


On Tuesday, legendary Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward decided to retire from the sport he loves. The Steelers no longer wanted the 36-year-old and apparently no other teams were interested either. That’s why no. 86 chose to retire with the team he has played with his entire professional career instead of becoming a bench-warmer for a losing team.

Many people have mixed feelings on whether Ward should be a hall of famer or not, but whether you love him or hate him you have to respect him.

As a Browns fan it has been an honor to mock, jeer, flip off, throw things at and spit on Hines Ward during his playing days.

The only reason Hines Ward gets into the Hall of Fame is because he was a Steeler. Because EVERY Steeler gets in. It's the law.
