King likes Reed’s HOF chances

SI.com columnist Peter King, who is one of the 44 Pro Football Hall of Fame voters, likes Andre Reed’s chances to be enshrined in 2012.

King said as much in his Tuesday column. In a finalist group with no slam dunks, Reed’s chances are likely enhanced. Here’s what King wrote.

My gut feeling is that those with the best chance to be the final five this year are Dawson, wide receiver Andre Reed, defensive end Charles Haley, running back Curtis Martin and tackle William Roaf. Because I haven’t heard any debate on them yet from this committee, I can’t tell you how close new finalists Bill Parcells and Will Shields will be. I tend to think Parcells has a better shot because he took the four teams he coached to the playoffs and two to the Super Bowl, but it’s always cloudy figuring who has real traction until you hear the debate in the room.

This is the sixth straight time that Reed is a finalist for Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement.
