Kicker Jeff Reed signs a one-year deal worth $2.8 mil

A day after charges against him were dropped, the Steelers and kicker Jeff Reed came to terms today on a one-year deal. The deal is worth $2,814,000 for the 2010 season. It’s the number owed to him for being a franchise player on the roster, a title given to him before free agency kicked off on March 5th.

For now, Reed’s agent, Don Henderson, and the team are still chatting about a long term deal. “It’s our goal to try to keep working and see him stay for a long time in Pittsburgh,” Don Henderson said. “They told us that’s what they want and that’s what we want. They’ve been dealing with us and talking to us. Hopefully, we’ll sign a long-term contract and he will remain in Pittsburgh.”

There’s no doubt that this is and should be a deal the Steelers need to get done. Reed has been the best kicker the Steelers have had probably since Gary Anderson back in the late 80’s and early 90’s when he got a bit older and even more accurate than he was before. Look for this deal to get done and for Reed to stick around for 4-5 more years.
