Reed Thinks It’s His Turn To Get to the Hall of Fame


One of the all-time greats, Bills WR Andre Reed, is up for the Hall of Fame again this year, and this time around he tells the Buffalo News he thinks he’s going to make it.

“I believe it’s my time this year,” Reed said. “Over the last six years, I’ve seen Jim [Kelly], Thurman [Thomas], Marv [Levy], Bruce [Smith], James Lofton and Ralph [Wilson] get in. I’m not going to lie and say I shouldn’t be in there with those guys. I was just as competitive as them, if not more.”

Reed will have some tough competition when it comes to the WR spot again this year, including Cris Carter and Tim Brown. Last year Carter and Brown were among the five finalists eliminated in the first round of voting while Reed made it to the second round. Reed says he’ll be upset if his name isn’t called on the day before the Super Bowl.

“I’d be very disappointed, considering how the voting went last year,” Reed said. “I knew I wasn’t going to make it with Jerry [Rice] and Emmitt [Smith] up. I’m not putting Cris or Tim down. People always say it’s a tough class. It’s been a tough class all four years. I’m going against some great players who have great careers and are very deserving.”
