STEERERR NO PAY, RONGRASTNAME NO GET LUB AND TUG!!! IT SIMPER!!”
It’s okay, whoever’s responsible for this probably did charity work at some point.
As a Steelers homer, I also take issue with the subhead. Releasing Hines wasn’t that difficult of a decision for the team. And he’s my favorite player. He has little to nothing left to contribute on the field. The team has salary cap issues and Hines was set to make $4 million next season. Yeah, they could have offered him a pay cut and apparently didn’t, but it’s debatable whether he’s even worth a roster spot at this point. Not putting the franchise tag on Mike Wallace was a tougher call on the Steelers than cutting Hines.
