49’ers Ink former Steelers Kicker Jeff Reed

The 49ers have a new kicker, as former Steelers kicker Jeff Reed has been inked to fill in for the recently-injured Joe Nedney.

Reed, who played almost nine seasons in Pittsburgh, was released by the Steelers after missing seven of 22 field goal attempts this season.

“I was a little dejected when it happened and I still kind of have questions about it, but that’s old news now,” Reed told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Nedney sprained his right knee Nov. 14 in the 23-20 overtime victory over the Rams and is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season.
