Reed, Keisel contract updates

While news has slowed down concerning contract talks between the Steelers and any of their players who are scheduled to become free agents at the end of the season, that's not exactly anything new.

When the team re-signed Casey Hampton a few years ago, it happened the night of the team's first preseason game. So there's still some time.

Word is, however, that there is some dispute between the coaching staff and the front office as to who should be top priority, defensive end Brett Keisel or placekicker Jeff Reed.

The coaching staff feels it should be Keisel, the front office, Reed.

There's not a lot of money left in the pot right now, so it will be interesting to see if something gets done.

The Steelers will have their franchise tag back at the end of this season after using it on offensive tackle Max Starks.

And if the team fails to get something done with both Keisel and Reed - among others - before we get too close to the regular season, don't be surprised if Reed is tagged.

The franchise tag value for kickers is a heck of a lot less than it is for defensive ends.

I can see both sides...

The coaching staff may think we sign BK and we tagg Reed next year.

FO thinks we have Bretts replacement in Hood, so lets sign our top notch kicker...

I'm with you. I think he is too important to the D to let go next year.

Finding a kicker than knows Heinz Field and the weather conditions in Pittsburgh like Reed is a lot harder than finding a solid defensive end.

What about Ryan Clark? It's hard to find a suitable replacement to partner up with Troy. WIth Polamalu's playing style, he needs to be coupled with a well-disciplined, stay-at-home FS who can cover the deep stuff while Troy....does his thing.

I'd just Franchise Reid and sign Keisel.

We can't lose Reid.

Reid sucked but I'd definitely franchise Reed.
