D. Supelveda will have the chance to kick off for Pittsburgh (Getty). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Although Steelers kicker Jeff Reed wears crazy hair and takes crazy pictures inside bars – not to mention, wanting crazy kicker money for a kicker who’s decent but not outstanding – he seems fine with possibly sharing kickoff duties with Pittsburgh punter Daniel Sepulveda.

This move has been in the works for the past year or two, because Sepulveda has an extraordinarily strong leg and because he’s more athletic than the average punter. The Steelers talked about making this move last year but were cautious because Sepulveda was coming off 2008 ACL surgery.

On Tuesday, though, he kicked off four times during practice, as noted by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review , and it appears he’ll give Reed a rest on some of those kickoffs. Reed doesn’t seem to mind – though it’s unclear why the Steelers would give him more money if he’s going to be doing less work – and he’s helping Sepulveda with his technique.

Perhaps most reassuring for the Steelers who allowed four kickoff return touchdowns last year? Sepulveda is 6-foot-3, 230 pounds and he began his college career as a walk-on linebacker at Baylor. So, he’s not going to be afraid to tackle a return man who’s actually smaller than him.
