NFL ordered Jeff Reed to undergo an evaluation, too

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was permitted to return to practice this week only after undergoing a league-mandated psychological evaluation. Steelers kicker Jeff Reed revealed today that he was required to go through an evaluation, too.

“I’ve been to doctors, too, and psychologists and I take it seriously,” Reed said. “Because if someone thinks it’s that important to do something like that, then I treat it like that.”

Reed said the NFL mandated the evaluation after he was charged with disorderly conduct and public drunkenness in an October incident in which he confronted police officers who were citing Steelers tight end Matt Spaeth for urinating in public. Those charges were later dropped when Reed completed 40 hours of community service. Reed had previously been in trouble for damaging a paper towel dispenser and harassing the employees of a convenience store.

Reed said he’s determined not to get in trouble off the field again.

“How you deal with it and how you respond like any adversity, whether it’s on the field or off, is what kind of person you are,” he said.

  1. Jeff Reed’s complete statement:
    “I think that US Americans, such as, sometimes don’t have maps, such as, Because if someone thinks it’s that important to do something like that, then I treat it like that. And I believe that our education, such as like South Africa, and the Iraq, everywhere like such as, how you respond like any adversity, whether it’s on the field or off, is what kind of person you are, such as.”

    8-8 for the squealers in 2010
    _________________________________
    spoken like a true browns fan. 8-8 is like a SB to them.

  3. He makes Rapistberger look smart, which is hard to do when you look a his big fat dumb face!

  4. No Dan Rooney, our SB will be if slap your azzes with 2 L’s and then go 2-14 in 2010!

  5. Mandated psychological evaluations should be required for all Steeler fans if they still support Rapenstein.

  6. Ive seen Reed out here in Charlotte. The guy just likes to party…all the time…and gel his hair…and dye it…and act like a douche…but other than that…no problems really.

  7. Tomlin, are you a real man? Why do you let the inmates run what was once a proud asylum? loser

  8. You almost have to believe that putting together a team made up of miscreants, like this version of the Steelers, is part of some master plan by the Rooneys.
    There’s no way that this collection of turds is purely accidental.
    Classy organization…and 8-8 is a pipe-dream.

  9. He looks like the jagoff from the TGI Fridays commercial. He and Ben have a combined IQ of 86.

  10. After several weeks of therapy with Jeff Reed, the entire team of experts is now permanently confined. To prevent harm to themselves or others.

  11. At the end of the evaluation, Reed’s diagnosis came down.
    “Just ****ing crazy!”.

  12. Oh no!
    A guy destroyed a $20 towel dispenser almost a year ago. Then, weeks later he tried to talk the cops out of giving his buddy a ticket for pissing in an alley behind a bar. This guy must be stopped at all costs!!!
    Rock stars who destroy their hotel rooms think this story is so cute.

  13. Steelers new training staff is noticably larger and will be dressed in white coveralls.

  14. the 1st thing that dude needs to do is get a new swag, his highlight bart simpson doo just aint cuttin it my man…
