It's official


Steelers cut kicker Reed
Tuesday, November 16, 2010
By Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The Steelers have released struggling kicker Jeff Reed and are expected to sign former Washington Redskins kicker Shaun Suisham, who worked out for them this morning, the Post-Gazette has learned.

Suisham, who was cut in by the Steelers in training camp in 2005, kicked at Heinz Field in gray conditions under the watchful eye of Coach Mike Tomlin and director of football operations Kevin Colbert.

In parts of four seasons with the Redskins, he converted 81 of 101 field goal attempts, a conversion percentage of 80.1 percent. In 12 games last season, Suisham made 18 of 21 field goals (85.7 percent).

Suisham also kicked for the Dallas Cowboys after being cut by the Steelers.

Hmmm...I would have taken Stover (based solely on Stover's and Suisham's past in-game performances), but I guess Suisham was more impressive at HF today.

I just hope that - very much unlike Reed - he is willing to sacrifice his body to make a tackle if - very much like Reed - he kicks it to the 10 repeatedly and allows big-time KRs.

Reed's gonna be pissed.

There's a towel dispenser somewhere that's about to get busted up real bad.

I wish him well, he was a helluva kicker and an entertaining guy before it went south.  That said, he should have enough money to keep him in liquor and funny haircuts for as long as he needs.  Good luck, bud.

Welcome aboard, Shazam!
