Steelers Sign Hines Ward To Contract Extension

The Steelers and Hines Ward have come to a contract agreement that his agent said today will be either for four or five years. The new contract reduces his salary this season and provides Ward with a signing bonus that will be pro-rated over the five years of the contract, saving the team the much-needed room under the cap.
