Jeff Reed signs his tender

A day after having disorderly conduct and public drunkenness charges dropped against him, Steelers kicker Jeff Reed signed his one-year franchise tender offer.

Reed will enter his ninth year with the Steelers and is coming off a season in which he made 27 of 31 field goal attempts and all 41 extra points.

Reed’s agent told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that both sides hope to get a long-term deal done.

“It’s our goal to try to keep working and see him stay for a long time in Pittsburgh,” agent 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.”

    …and then he stabbed it with his pen, threw it on the ground, yelled some incoherent drunken expletives, and pissed on it.

    Who gives a shit? It’s a kicker, and it’s Pittsburgh. The only news we wanna hear relating to the Steelers is what happens to Rapenstein. Throw the book at him, Roger! ha ha ha…

    “Boston lawyer Harry Manion told WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan Show on Tuesday that Manion was involved in an investigation regarding another Big Ben incident.
    Maybe not.”

    / fixed
    Hey PFT, WTAE TV in Pittsburgh just ran a report on the 5 o’clock news stating that Manion, has already totally recanted this story, not once but TWICE today.
    So, when is Florio going to write his retraction and apology?

    And as part of his contract, the Steelers have removed all paper towel dispensers from Heinz field, and replaced them with ketschup dispensers….When he kicks a feild goal, all Steeler fans can run to the bathroom, and get free ketschup….

    Wow he only missed 4 fgs, that surprises me, too bad 2 of them were in the Chicago game.

    Reed is a convicted drunken fool..but Florio choses to pick on an innocent person, who has been lied on by a kook and a drunk. Lynch mob mentality of todays press is disturbing.

    ————————————————–
    He didn’t “recant” at all. He has now said that he didn’t mean to imply such-and-such and that he has no further details to offer. In other words, he’s not denying what he said before, he’s just not adding anything to it and has no further comment. To recant means to take it back. He didn’t take it back.
    When are you going to print your retraction and apology for claiming the guy recanted when he didn’t?

    How many bottle rats does Pukesburgh need on their team?

    Just win baby. This Ben stuff is nonsense.
    I am a football fan. Period. Just win. two SBs in four years. Unless you are a Pats fan you can’t even relate.
    The next Cincinnati? Big difference….we win SBs beeeatch.
    I’ll leave the drama to you Bungles and Clowns fans.

    I’ll tell you what.
    There’s a couple of old sayings that were penned by someone who apparently knew your sibling parents; #1) You wouldn’t know a clue if it walked up to you, bit you on the ass, and announced ‘I am a clue!’. #2) You couldn’t even buy a clue if you bribed an army of clue guides during clue mating season in a field of clues if you smeared your body in musk and did the clue mating dance.
    In the future, please refrain from even reading much less answering any of the posts that I write.
    Even just attempting to communicate intelligently in your direction is just, well, beneath me.

    Perhaps you are type of person that needs instructions on a roll of toilet paper, but let me help you:
    When someone says they didn’t mean to imply something, that is the same as saying they didn’t mean to say something. Read the rest of the article where he says he doesn’t have any specifics or any real info on case. He was talking out his ass to impress some dj’s. Just cause he didn’t cry out “I recant!!!!” doesn’t mean that was not what he was saying later. He’s a lawyer so he’ll never say he was wrong.

    Let’s see, he’s white, he plays for the Steelers, and all the charges have been dropped. Yup, everything adds up.
