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.
