I'll say this - reading that article changed my opinion on Reed somewhat. I knew he was doing well, but didn't know if he was worth the off field stuff. But if he's in the top 10 all time in accuracy when he's kicking at Heinz half the time? I can live with it. We might go through a lot of kickers before we find another who can make them as often on that field.
Yeah, I like Reed's accuracy, but aside from his off-the-field issues (which, to be honest, don't piss me off, but rather just make me think he's a lame-ass), my gripe with him is that he's 2X liability on kickoffs. Not only does he usually fail to kick it deep, but once he kicks it, it's 11-on-10 in favor of the bad guys, as Reed outright refuses to make a tackle or even serve as any sort of obstacle for the returner.
Re-sign him for his FG prowess, but for the love of God, try what FW suggested with Sepulveda or sign a "kickoff specialist."
