I caught a good bit of Hines Ward's interview this morning on Colin Cowherd's show. Asked about retirement plans, Hines said he's talked to Jerry Rice, Deion Sanders and Emmitt Smith about it.
They all told him "to play 'til the wheels fall off," he said.
Hines continues to mold a Hall-of-Fame career in the NFL. He's only 46 catches short of 1,000 for his career, tied for 8th all-time with Randy Moss.
If you discount Herschel's USFL years, have to figure Hines is Georgia's most successful pro since, who, Fran Tarkenton?
