The Pittsburgh Steelers will release kicker Jeff Reed today. Glazer says Reed has already been informed of the move. The veteran has made just 15-of-22 field goal tries this season and missed a 26-yard chip shot Sunday, later blaming it on the turf at Heinz Field.
To replace Reed, the Steelers are expected to sign free agent kicker Shaun Suisham. Suisham has been in a couple of the Steelers' training camps before, and they evidently liked what they saw from him in Tuesday's workout enough to cut Reed loose. Suisham kicked fairly well for Dallas last season, making 20-of-24 field goal tries, though he did miss an extra point.
