Default Jeff Reed

I just read over on cbssportsline that Jeff Redd turned down a contract offer from the team. His agent said it was way to low.

Damn it. The man hasn't missed a game winner his entire career. Can't lose a guy like this.

jeff is a must sign for us. I hope we don't try to get too cute with him.

Just offer him a lifetime supply of towel dispensors.

Oh no, we might need to spend a 6th-round draft pick next year to get a decent kicker. Or go back and sign that Czech guy.

Seriously, Reed is awesome, but no kicker is worth $3 million.

I agree. Sorry Jeff you are one of the best, but 3million - seriously. We can franchise him for less than that.

The hell they aren't. Vinatieri did the only legit thing in those 3 SBs with the Cheatriots, and the result was 3 tainted SBs. But that KICKER won those games.

Compare that to Gary Anderson who missed one field goal all year in '98, and it was to win the NFCC and get to the SB. If he makes that kick, it's quite possible the Vikes win the SB as well. Or, Vandershank, who choked and let us win SB XL as a result. You telling me it wouldn't have been worth 3 million for either of those teams to get TO a SB?

Worth every penny if he's clutch and reliable.
