One day before Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, the NFL announced its 2012 class of Hall of Fame inductees. These men will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August to kick off the 2012 NFL season.
Again this year, the wide receivers were left out. Among the snubs was Andre Reed, who made the cut to 10 finalists, but did not make the final cut.
Reed had a long run as the top receiver for the Bills, finishing his playing career with 13,198 yards on 951 catches, as well as scoring 87 touchdowns. He ranks in the all-time top 10 in receptions and receiving yards and is 11th in career touchdown receptions.
His four Super Bowl appearances also add to his legacy. Reed has the second-most receptions in Super Bowl history behind Jerry Rice and is third in all-time Super Bowl receiving yards.
Reed was already a member of the Bills Wall of Fame as well as the Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame, but will have to wait, hoping to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame
