Reed HOF voting history

Posted by Chris Brown on February 3, 2012 – 4:50 pm

Here’s the rundown on how the voting has gone each of the past five years that Bills Wall of Famer Andre Reed has been a finalist for Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement. Reed is a finalist for a sixth time this year with perhaps his best chance of making the final cut Saturday.

2007 – Reed is eliminated in the first cut from 15 to 10 with both Michael Irvin and Art Monk advancing. Monk was then eliminated when the group was reduced to six, with Irvin making the cut and eventually being selected for enshrinement.

2008 - Reed is eliminated in the first cut from 15 to 10 with both Cris Carter and Art Monk advancing. Carter was then eliminated in the next reduction from 10 to 5, with Monk making the cut and eventually being selected for enshrinement.

2009 – Reed again did not make the cut from 15 to 10. Veteran committee finalist Bob Hayes was the only receiver selected for induction.

2010 – For the first time Reed advances past the first cut while Cris Carter and Tim Brown were both eliminated, but Reed doesn’t make it past the reduction from 10 to 5, with Jerry Rice advancing and being selected for enshrinement.

2011 – Reed again advances past the first cut with Cris Carter and Tim Brown both being eliminated again, but Reed was again ousted in the reduction from 10 to 5, with Shannon Sharpe and Ed Sabol being selected for enshrinement.

The 2012 Hall of Fame induction class will be announced on the NFL Network at 5:30 pm Saturday.
