Kicker Jeff Reed hopes to help Seahawks to another Super Bowl

Published on August 22, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Jeff Reed is the lone kicker on the Seahawks 90-man roster after the team waived Brandon Coutu shortly before Saturday’s preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings.

“I never take anything for granted, to his credit he had an awesome camp,” said Reed of Coutu in a post game interview on Saturday night. “We competed every day and numbers-wise, he maybe made a couple more. But in his shoes, sometimes they go with a veteran over a younger guy.”

After Seahawks kicker Olindo Mare jumped ship for the Carolina Panthers, the Seahawks signed free agent Reed on August 3 to add experience at the position. Reed spent 8 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers before his release by the team in November of last year. Reed finished out the season with the San Francisco 49ers.

“I’m not to say I’m the guy, you know I feel like I have a lot to prove,” said Reed. “I mean I have proven myself, but it’s a ‘what have you done lately for me business’ and I have to prove that I can contribute to this team or they will go elsewhere.”

“I take pride in being really consistent and being a big-time contributor to the team because as kicker, a lot of guys are outcasts and not really in the mix,” Reed continued. “So I take pride in being a leader and making most of my kicks, but sometimes you are human and you are going to miss.”

Having kicked against the Seahawks in Super Bowl XL, Reed knows something about the team, although only two players from that season – CB Kelly Jennings and LB Leroy Hill – remain on the roster. While the Steelers ultimately won the game 21-10, there were a number of officiating calls which remain controversial today.

“It’s one of those things, I don’t think either team in that game really deserved a ring. It was a boring game all around. There were some dropped passes, there were some bad plays and there was one really explosive play from Willie Parker. Other than that, you can blame anybody, but I was just glad to be on the winning side of that I guess I should say.”
