Hines Ward is the Steelers' all-time leading receiver with 1,000 catches for 12,083 yards.

Hines Ward has said he wants to finish his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It would have been nice if the Steelers' all-time leading wide receiver could get the Jerome Bettis treatment and play one more year in Pittsburgh as a sort of farewell tour.

Oh, Ward can retire as a Steeler, but the ceremony is likely to come in the form of the farcical one-day contract that so many other NFL players have signed so they can say they retired with their most beloved team.

In the meantime, there are other teams that want Ward more than the Steelers do at this point.

In 14 seasons with the Steelers, Ward has won two Super Bowls, earning the MVP award in one of them. He's epitomized the Steelers' trademark grit while remaining likeable.

It will be hard to stomach the sight of Ward in another uniform next season, but it would be no different than the sight of Franco Harris in a Seahawks uniform or Mike Webster in a Chiefs uniform.

If Ward's playing days in Pittsburgh are over, here are the 10 teams most likely to sign him.
