Default Skippy signed with the 49ers!

Just heard about it a few minutes ago on twitter. Looks like somebody decided to pick him up after all. Thought on this?

Ohhh...you beat me by a minute!

Jeff Reed's NFL hiatus is over.

Released by the Steelers two weeks ago, the kicker signed with the 49ers on Thursday according to The Sports Xchange.

A knee injury has sidelined veteran Niners K Joe Nedney the past two games. Fill-in Shane Andrus was waived Tuesday, a day after he missed two of four FGs vs. the Arizona Cardinals and was so erratic in warm-ups that head coach Mike Singletary seemed to be grimacing.

Reed, who earned the franchise tag in the offseason, is the 15th-most accurate kicker in league history (81.9%), an accomplishment made more impressive by the fact that his entire nine-year career was spent dealing with the shifting sod and tricky winds of Pittsburgh's Heinz Field.

However he was having the worst year of his career, missing seven of 22 FG attempts, including two crucial misfires that came back to haunt the Steelers in their 20-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 4.

Guess he got tired of waiting for the Jets to cut their kicker

Perfect town for him. He'll blend right in with the rest of the nuts and kooks. I'm sure he would not be arrested there if he assaults another towel dispenser.
