Hawks Add Veteran Kicker Jeff Reed to Roster

The Seahawks have made an interesting personnel move, picking up veteran kicker Jeff Reed Wednesday.

The move doesn’t mean the team will keep two kicker, it simply means the team will be able to choose between youth and experience. Reed’s weight was an issue when the veteran kicker was filling in for an injured Joe Nedney in San Francisco last season.

Reed’s best work came as a member of the Steelers, where he won two Super Bowls on the teams that won XL and XLIII. The 32-year-old showed up in much better shape for a workout this week.

The 32-year-old Reed joins a roster that has featured inexperienced kickers Brandon Coutu and Wes Byrum to this point in camp.
