Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward retired from football after being released from the team for basically being old. While Ward earned the MVP Award for Super Bowl XL, was a four-time Pro Bowl selection, has two Super Bowl rings, and a Dancing with the Stars championship, perhaps his greatest achievement will be his tenure for the Gotham Rogues in The Dark Knight Rises, and his ability to outrun Bane’s sinkhole machine. Now fans can remember Ward’s fictional touchdown run by pre-ordering the Hines Ward Gotham Rogues action figure. Designed by McFarlane Toys (who do good work), the toy will be available this October.
Hit the jump to check out the action figure. The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20th.
