49ers sign K Jeff Reed

San Jose Mercury News - [Full Article]

With kicker Joe Nedney still ailing, the 49ers are hoping that Jeff Reed can regain the form that made him one of the greatest kickers in Pittsburgh Steelers history.

The 49ers agreed to terms with the veteran kicker Thursday, and Reed will handle kicking chores against the Green Bay Packers at chilly Lambeau Field on Sunday.

Reed entered this season as one of the most reliable legs in the game, but the Steelers waived him after a string of erratic performances. Reed's seven misses this season (15 of 22) were almost as many as he had over the previous two seasons combined.
