“What can I say? There are so many things, emotions right now," Reed told Buffalobills.com. "I want to thank the Bills, the organization, the fans all the support I had over the years. This is for you guys because I wouldn’t have done this without the fans and my teammates, Bruce and Thurman and Jim and all those guys. I could go on and on, but next to my kids this is probably the highlight of my life and to do it all in Buffalo is really special. So thanks to everyone, I appreciate it.”
Reed is one of the last members of the Bills team that many believe to be a lock for the Hall of Fame honors. He caught 951 passes for 13,198 yards and 87 touchdowns, finishing his career as the third most prolific wide receiver at the time. Reed was a member of the aforementioned Super Bowl teams, as well as the team that holds the record for the greatest comeback in NFL history, after the Bills stormed back from a 35-3 deficit to beat the Houston Oilers in an AFC Wild Card game.
The city of Buffalo couldn't be prouder that their most beloved receiver finally received the credit he deserves, and the fans of the Bills will be excited to tune in to the ceremony to support him at the time of his induction.
