Back in April, Ward told a group of high school students that he would retire if he won a third Super Bowl ring with the Steelers. But Ward said he hasn’t really thought about it much since then.
“My mom asked me that the other day. I really haven’t thought about it, to be honest,” Ward said. “I don’t want to make an emotional decision based off that.”
Ward was second on the Steelers in receptions, trailing Mike Wallace by one, but Ward’s 59 catches were his fewest since 2000. His 755 yards were his second fewest since 2000, and his five touchdown catches were his fewest since 2004. Ward holds 14 Steelers franchise records, including 954 receptions, 11,702 yards and 84 touchdowns. He is considered one of the best blocking receivers ever and is in many ways the heart and soul of the team. Ward signed a four-year contract extension worth $22 million in April 2009.
“I know Jerome went out on top and stuff like that,” Ward said. “I really haven’t thought about it. I just want to be singly focused on winning this ballgame and figure out what is going to happen after that.”
Ward’s Steelers are 3-point underdogs on Bodog’s NFL odds against Green Bay for Super Bowl XLV.
