In our article here, we envisioned a scenario in where former Pittsburgh Steeler WR Hines Ward could end his career out in his hometown of Atlanta, GA.
We knew it was a long shot but hey it’s the NFL. The Falcons recently let WR/KR Eric Weems slide over to Chicago yet they brought back slot man Harry Douglas.
But those moves are not the only thing that put a pin in that balloon. Ward is selling his Atlanta mansion for $ 7.5 million dollars.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There is both happiness as well as some disappointment in Steelers Nation following the Pro Football Hall of Fame announcements Saturday.
Four of the 17 nominees once wore the black and gold; and four of the six to make it into the Hall of Fame Class of 2012 have strong ties to Pittsburgh.
KDKA’s Kym Gable watched the ceremony live with fans at Jerome Bettis Grille 36 on the North Shore. Many were disappointed that Bettis, a Pittsburgh favorite, didn’t make the final cut.
“He gives 100 percent, then he goes back and gives some more,” said Janet Tarpley. “He’s got to get in next year!”
Jonathan Boyle added, “Jerome, he’s one of the best, greatest of all time. He’ll be in, in the next year or so, I think.”
But the announcement that former Steeler Dermontti Dawson and Pittsburgh native and former Pitt Panther Curtis Martin would join the Class of 2012 drew applause from the crowd.
“It’s wonderful, but they always say there’s too many Steelers in Canton. There can never be too many Steelers in Canton,” said Joanna Bednarofsky.
“We deserve our wing in the Football Hall of Fame,” Rick Smith agreed. “Why not?”
