Bills all-time leading receiver and Wall of Famer Andre Reed is once again a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon when given the opportunity on SiriusXM radio to campaign for Reed laid out why Reed should be enshrined.
“He’s one of the best receivers of his generation,” said Brandon. “That’s what I believe should really be the focal point. The Bills were the winningest team in the AFC in the 90’s. A dominant team with a dominant offense and every single individual associated with our organization and in football will tell you what a big of that offense he was.”
In the next breath Brandon also stumped for Steve Tasker, who was a Hall of Fame semifinalist this year.
“We also need to get Steve Tasker into the Hall of Fame,” said Brandon. “He’s the greatest special teamer of all time. Why is he not in? If you game plan for someone every time he’s on the field, that was Steve Tasker. It’s a third of the game and he needs to be in the Hall of Fame with Andre.”
The HOF Board of Selectors will be whittling down the list of 17 finalists to a maximum of seven for induction on Saturday.
