One of the key players in the Bills’ remarkable four straight Superbowl appearances, Andre Reed was snubbed 7 straight years – he finally answers the call on August 2nd.
As the Go-To Guy in the Bills K-Gun offense during their run to 4 straight Superbowl appearances, Andre Reed was one of the most productive receivers of the 80s and 90s.
Accomplishments: 7 Pro Bowls, 2 All-Pro selections, retired in the Top 5 of all major receiving categories, 4 AFC Championship titles
Why He Is Deserving: Andre Reed was one of the most important pieces in the Bills’ run in the late 80s and early 90s that included 4 trips to the Superbowl. He recorded four 1,000 yard receiving seasons, and the Jim Kelly-Andre Reed receiving combination is still considered one of the best of all-time. But for years Reed was snubbed for the Hall of Fame. He was a finalist every year from 2007 to 2013, but could not make the cut until 2014.
Most Incredible Season: 1991. Reed caught 81 passes for 1,113 yards and 10 TDs (a career high) on the way to the Bills’ 2nd straight Superbowl appearance.
