Steelers' Hines Ward open to revamped deal to remain in Pittsburgh, according to Facebook post
PITTSBURGH (AP) ' Steelers' wide receiver Hines Ward wants to finish his career in Pittsburgh, offering to restructure his contract to do it.
Ward posted on his Facebook page Saturday that he's already told the Steelers he's willing to work with them on altering his deal so he can remain with the team. Ward's comments came after NFL.com reported the team was planning to cut the franchise's all-time leading receiver.
The 35-year-old Ward is scheduled to make $4 million in 2012. He's coming off a season in which he finished with 46 receptions for 381 yards and two touchdowns, the lowest totals in each category since he was a rookie in 1998.
Ward became the eighth player in league history to reach 1,000 career receptions in the regular-season finale against Cleveland.
