In four NFL seasons, Reed has played in 59 games with 36 starts.

  1. by the end of last season he couldn’t even get a helmet on Sundays even though the Steelers had no one behind Watt and Highsmith.

  2. Rich Roberts says:
    Good in Denver under Fangio. Who was his LB coach in Pittsburgh?
    Same one who coached T.J. Watt…

  3. Based on how much pressure he generated in Pittsburgh, “edge rusher” seems like an overstatement.

  4. Dolphins signed Reed for Special Teams and depth. Fangio is familiar with him. TJ Watt had a terrible year last year BTW – 5 sacks, hurt all year.
