Hines Ward Expected To Announce Retirement At Noon Press Conference

Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward has scheduled a noon press conference for today on the South Side of Pittsburgh at the team\’s facilities.

The speculation is that Ward, the Steelers all-time leading receiver, may announce his retirement today. He has maintained that he still wanted to play up until now, after being informed of his release from the Steelers late in February, but he has yet to sign with a team once free agency began.

Ward played 14 seasons with the Steelers after being drafted out of the University of Georgia.

We will have the full audio and reaction to the press conference immediately after its conclusion.
