Hines Ward joining NBC Sports

Hines Ward, former always-smiling Steelers wide receiver and Dancing with the Stars champion, will join NBC as an analyst for Football Night in America, college football and the NBC Sports Network. SI's Richard Deitsch broke the news via Twitter this afternoon.

Judging by the replies to Deitsch's Twitter and from other reactions around the net, people are happy with this move. It's a natural fit for Ward, who always seemed to have the knack for broadcasting and television. Ward got some on-air practice during NBC's pregame for this year's Super Bowl XLVI, providing analysis along with Aaron Rodgers.
