Former Steelers kicker Jeff Reed trying to make an NFL comeback

Former Steelers kicker Jeff Reedis trying to work his way back into the NFL at the age of 35.

“I looked into the CFL and the Arena League,” Reed said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “It’s just a lot of work for little pay, and it sounds kind of shallow, but when you’ve played for the most elite level of football and you think you can still do it, why wouldn’t you?”

So far the Titans have shown some interest in Reed.

Reed said that he was contacted by Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt about coming in for a workout. He added that Whisenhunt was up front about the fact the Titans would like to have a younger kicker, but they would still be interested in seeing what Reed has to offer.

Reed said he hoped he would be the first kicker contacted if someone go hurt, “but I have no idea what people think. I mean, my stats and where I’ve kicked and how I’ve kicked for the most part speak for themselves. So, it’s just a matter of coming across the right path.”

Reed was a good solid kicker with the Steelers until he started to miss one too many field goal attempts.
