Report: Steelers Contemplating Cutting K Jeff Reed


Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Steelers are contemplating cutting Jeff Reed and plan on bringing in kickers for workouts on Tuesday. Reed had a vocal opinion to the media last night. Reed was franchised last off-season for $2.85 million. Reed expressed his unhappiness about his contract several times since training camp and this last outburst combined with his sub par performance this year may be all the front office can handle. It also could be a tactic to just scare Reed straight and see if he snaps out of it. If the Steelers were to make the move, they would likely do it on Tuesday so the new kicker has time to work with holder Daniel Sepulveda and long snapper Greg Warren. Free agent Piotr Czech has kicked with the Steelers before in the offseason and might be an option as too could be free agent veteran kicker Matt Stover. Scott Brown reports that Shaun Suisham is being brought in to kick on Tuesday for the coaches.
