Pittsburgh Steelers veteran wide receiver Hines Ward says he is willing to take a pay cut to stay on the team which he has played for his entire career, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“I'd probably have to restructure my contract," Ward said of the pay cut. "That's fine with me. I recognize that. I'm telling you I want to be here, I'm telling you I'm willing to do that. And I understand the ramifications -- we have the cap number and stuff, but I want to be here."
Despite earlier rumors that the 35-year-old would retire, Ward is reportedly determined that he can still play at a high level. Ideally, he would like to remain a Steeler, but if the club is unable to keep him on the roster, he says he is confident that he can still play football.
