    Jeff has a much better chance than Santonio Holmes does of getting one.

    I'm not sure but I always thought there was no rule and it was up to the team to decide. If that's the case I think the Steelers will say F'u! Simply because of his attitude. If he wasn't a jerk off than they might give one.

    Football and baseball have very different rules regarding this and I may confuse them while I explain so forgive me... Last season in MLB, the catcher for the Rangers would have received a ring whether his team won or not because he started the season with the Giants. I also know that the team in MLB chooses how to divide up their winnings unlike football where each player receives the same monetary figure. Back to the rings, I believe Reed does receive one based on an old rule stating that a player who plays in a specific number of games or a player on a practice squad all year can get a ring as well.

    Not a perfect explanation, but I'm heading in the right direction....

    It may be up to the team but I think the rule is if you are cut or traded during the season you don't get one.

    Edit - I don't know this for sure but seem to have read that somewhere.

    Reed will NOT get a ring: he would have to be on the 53 man roster: Practice Squad, or injured reserved

    There are no set rules to the distribution of the rings. The NFL pays for 150 rings to be given to the winner of the Super Bowl. The league also pays up to $5,000 for each ring. Each team has the discretion regarding who recieves a ring.

    Typically every member of the active roster and the coaching staff get rings. The entire front office and ownership get rings. Injured Reserve and practice squad get rings if their team decides to give them out to them, most do. In some cases players traded during the season will get them too, if they suited up and played during the regular season, but again it is by individual team discretion. (even though regular season trades in the NFL are rare, very rare) If team ownership wanted to give rings to the cheerleaders and other non football operations employees they could, ownership pays for the rings.

    Bottom line, with Reeds attitude and exit plan, well, my guess is SOL!

    I doubt he gets a ring. He doesn't deserve one nonetheless.
