    Jeff Reed to get transition tag
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on February 23, 2010 7:34 PM ET

    The Steelers will take full advantage of the rules governing the uncapped season.

    On the same day word leaked that the team will use the franchise tag on Casey Hampton, NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports the team will use the transition tag on kicker Jeff Reed.

    Reed can sign an offer sheet elsewhere, but the Steelers will have the right to match the offer. The eight-year veteran will make $2.629 million if he signs a one-year contract as the team's transition player.

    We won't be surprised if Reed plays under the one-year contract. The recent Sebastian Janikowski contract could make a long-term deal tough, but the presence of Jay Feely, Neil Rackers, and Shayne Graham on the open market may keep teams from bothering to bring in Reed.

    Add it all up, and the Steelers should be keeping their very own liquored up kicker.

    He appears to be transitioning into a bog brush.

    I dunno... This could be a good move... Very few have proven to be able to handle the winds/field conditions at Heinz field as Reed has... Keep him and possibly bring in a "specialist" for kickoffs? Accept the poor kickoffs in trade for reliability with field goals?.... Yea, he missed a few this past season, but if you look at his overall numbers, he's much better that average..... Again, I dunno.

    If no other teams offer a bite, he could come to terms with us.

    I would add a sobriety clause to his contract.
