Jeff Reed Angry Over Contract

Steelers kicker Jeff Reed arrived at camp upset about his contract:

“I’m not going to point anyone out or any statement out, but, yeah, I was told one thing and another thing happened,” Reed said Saturday after practice at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe. “I understand business moves, but I’m not a big fan of lying”…

Part of the problem is that the Steelers had to sign tackle Flozell Adams to a two-year, $7.5 million contract after the season-ending injury to right tackle Willie Colon.

When the Steelers made Reed their franchise player back in February, they suggested they’d like to sign him to a long-term deal. Now team president Art Rooney II says that isn’t going to happen, at least not this season.
