Former Steelers kicker Jeff Reed was sent packing after a Randy-Moss-esque press conference confessional following the team’s Sunday night loss to the Patriots. And according to Reed’s agent, Don Henderson, the wily kicker isn’t looking to get back into an NFL locker room anytime soon.
“We talked with the Bengals and considered it a good opportunity, but thought it was best that we’re not going to kick this weekend,” Henderson told Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “It wasn’t because of the Bengals (that we turned down the offer). We thought it would be better for Jeff to recharge and get ready for the rest of the season. We’ll start listening to offers again on Sunday or Monday.”
It helps that Reed will still receive the balance of his $2.8 million salary (he was slapped with the franchise tag last summer). I’d imagine that Reed is hitting convenience stores buying up what’s left of the caffeinated Four Loko beverages.
