The NFL Network is reporting that the Pittsburgh Steelers have decided to part ways with Pro Bowl receiver Hines Ward.

It's a move that not only makes financial sense for the Steelers, who can save $4 million over the next two years by letting Ward go, but it also makes logical sense for the Steelers, who have some legitimate talent at the wide receiver position in Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown.

Ward's production significantly dropped off this past season, grabbing a measly 46 receptions for 381 yards and two touchdowns, but that doesn't mean that the NFL veteran doesn't still have some gas left in the tank.

Ahead are five teams that could benefit from grabbing Hines Ward in free agency if he indeed hits the market.
