Nedney or Reed?

Nedney or Reed?

Joe Nedney- Age 37 (turns 38 in March)

Jeff Reed- Age 31 (turns 32 in April)

Stats:
Nedney-80.3% career on FGs with a long of 56, career pts 1113 in 16 seasons
Reed-82.2% career on FGs with a long of 53, career pts 959 in in 10 seasons
Both are a career 99.1% on PATs.

I think both K's are pretty good, I know we have Nedney under contract for at least next season. Assuming we get our pick of the 2 K's who do we want? I think Reed might be the better pick, similar stats between the 2 and Reed is 6 years younger.

I'm having trouble thinking of Reed as our long term K though. Nedney is nearing the end of his career, Reed probably has 4-7 years left if he can remain productive. With a career long FG of 53 yards I'm starting to think both these guys should be considered stop gaps until we can find someone with a better boot that can deliver from 45+ consistently.

Thoughts?

I'd stick with Nedney, Reed will catch on somewhere else and plus I always felt like Reed missed some really easy kicks when he played with Pit (their tough kicking stadium not withstanding)
I think we should just go for two every time we score a TD and then go for it on every 4th down and we could use that extra roster spot on a true contributor on defense.
nedney. i'd rather draft a kicker next year than stick than with reed until he's 38
Spend a 4th on Henery.
Nedney, if only because Nedney is awesome, and Reed is a douchebag.

This.

Henery in college hit 89% of his field goals.

By comparison no NFL kicker in history has hit above 87% for their career.

21 of 22 from 40-49 yds (95%)

5 career FGs from 50+ with a long of 57 yds.

NFL-quality punter as well.
