This is the eighth year that Bills all-time leading receiver Andre Reed has been a Pro Football Hall of Fame finalist. Here’s a look back at how he fared in each of the voting results since 2007.

2007 – Reed was eliminated in the first cut from 15 to 10 with both Michael Irvin and 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 was eliminated in the first cut from 15 to 10 with both Cris Carter and 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 – Reed advanced past the first cut with Cris Carter and Tim Brown both getting clipped, but Reed was eliminated in the reduction from 10 to 5, with Jerry Rice advancing and being selected for enshrinement.

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

2012 – Reed advanced past the first cut with Cris Carter both making it to the final 10. Tim Brown was eliminated. But in the reduction from 10 to 5 both Reed and Carter were eliminated.

2013 – Reed advanced past the first cut with Cris Carter both making it to the final 10. Tim Brown was eliminated. In the reduction from 10 to 5 Reed was eliminated and Carter made it through to the final 5. Carter was selected for enshrinement with a yes or no vote by 80 percent of the Selectors.
