Shaun Suisham

November 17, 2010 by staff 

Shaun Suisham, On the night of Sunday, the Steelers kicker Jeff Reed said he expects to retire as a member of the Steelers.

If so, you better leave now.

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the Steelers have cut Reed and signed Shaun Suisham. For the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, kicker Suisham was only brought to Pittsburgh for a test Tuesday Gong Show. Worked out for coach Mike Tomlin and director of football operations Kevin Colbert at Heinz Field on Tuesday.

Suisham made 18 of 21 shots from the field of the Redskins in 2009 but was cut after missing a short field goal in overtime of a potential upset on the Saints. Suisham ended the season with the Cowboys, so two of three field goals in two regular season games and missing two of three in a playoff loss to the Vikings, including a 48-yard attempt that would have given the Cowboys a 3-0 lead.

As the team’s franchise player in 2010, Reed received a salary of 2.814 million guaranteed. If it is claimed on waivers, Reed’s new team will have to pay for it and 1.15 million over the balance of the season. If not claimed, Reed will pocket the balance of his salary for the Steelers – and he will be able to receive payment for his next team.

The Bengals currently do not have a kicker on the roster. But we can not imagine the Bengals pay no stimulation and 1.15 million for seven games.
