The National Football League can be cruel at times, even for a star player who helped win division championships and Super Bowls.

Hines Ward, the All-Pro wide receiver of the Pittsburgh Steelers was told that the team will release him before the NFL’s calendar year which happens to come in the month of March.

The former University of Georgia quarterback who has spent all of his 14 years in the Steel City, had said several weeks ago that he would take a pay cut to stay with the Steelers, was not given that option by management.

Ward was scheduled to make $4 million in base salary in 2012, was just too much money to pay a #4 receiver in the Steelers minds eventhough he is still a playmaker.

Ward holds the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise records for receptions (1,000), receiving yards (12,083) and receiving touchdowns (85).

Ward said in a statement that he’ll play in the NFL in 2012.

Cincinnati Bengals rookie A.J. Green is starting to become the new star at wide receiver now that Chad Ochocinco is gone.

The quiet rookie from the University of Georgia caught 2 passes for just 25 yards in Sunday’s 23-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but it allowed him to pass fan-favorite Cris Collinsworth for the franchise record for rookie receiving yards.

Green now has 1,031 yards to eclipse the 1,009 that Collinsworth, currently a broadcaster for NBC, amassed in 1981.

Collinsworth still holds the record for receptions by a rookie with 67. Green currently is at 63 and has a chance to tie or even pass that mark this week against the Baltimore Ravens.
