Bills WR Andre Reed Inducted Into Hall Of Fame

CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Receiver Andre Reed has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Reed was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, who spent 15 of his 16 NFL seasons with the Buffalo Bills. Reed was a cornerstone of Bills teams that made four consecutive Super Bowl appearances and lost them all in the early 1990s.

He helped revolutionize the slot receiver position by playing in the so-called "K-Gun" no-huddle offense. Reed's 13,198 yards receiving ranked fourth when he retired following the 2000 season.

He was introduced by former Bills coach, Hall of Famer Marv Levy.

The seven-member Hall of Fame class is rounded out by defensive end Michael Strahan, offensive tackle Walter Jones, linebacker Derrick Brooks, defensive back Aeneas Williams, punter Ray Guy and defensive end Claude Humphrey.
