The Skipster is in such a position of power that he's turning down teams, according to agent Donal Henderson.
“We talked to three teams and we had offers from two of them,” Henderson said. “We decided to wait to see what happens this week.”
While Henderson did not disclose the interested parties, Scott Brown of the Trib pointed out that the Bengals were likely one of the suitors, having recently placed Mike Nugent on IR. I also noticed that the 49ers signed Shane Andrus to fill in for Joe Nedney after a Wednesday tryout, so that could have been one of the teams (although that's 100% speculation on my part).
Reed is still owed $1.16 million by the Steelers for 2010, which breaks down to $160,000 per week until he decides to grace the league with his fun-loving, Heinz Field-hating once more. That's a pretty nice paycheck to not kick a football, if I do say so.
