No one can play for ever, not even Hines Ward. While Ward is not ready to retire, he also confirmed on the Jim Rhome show that he will not play beyond his current contract, which expires in 2013.
Should Ward decide to play out the last two years of his contract, the Steelers may face a tough decision. Speculation is that salary cap considerations will either force the team to part with many of its veterans in 2012 or at least get them to accept greatly reduced salaries.
