Default Steelers kicker Reed signs $2.814M franchise tender

Steelers kicker Reed signs $2.814M franchise tender
Associated Press


PITTSBURGH -- Steelers kicker Jeff Reed has signed his $2.814 million tender offer, the team announced Tuesday.

Reed is the most accurate kicker in Steelers history, converting 83.3 percent of his career field-goal attempts (189 of 227). He was 27 of 31 last season.

Reed, who was in position to become a free agent before being designated as the franchise player, is hopeful of signing a long-term contract.

Reed signed one day after a Pittsburgh judge dismissed disorderly conduct and public drunkenness charges against him. Reed was charged in October following a post-game incident with police outside of a bar near Heinz Field.

Judge Richard King dropped two charges in March and told Reed he also would dismiss the remaining two charges if the kicker completed community service.

... and just think, a month and a half ago, we all thought this was the biggest obstacle left to deal with in the offseason.

Glad he signed it....but he'd be an idiot to not sign it....It pays him fair market value I think for his accuracy....top 5%......but I agree...start looking at next year's draft class (2011) to see who the top kickers are we could get in a mid-late round....or possible UFA....
