Reed feeling good about his speech

Bills 2014 Hall of Fame class inductee Andre Reed has been working on his speech for tonight’s enshrinement ceremonies. With a little bit of help Reed is confident the message he wants to convey will be effectively delivered.

“I feel really good about it,” said Reed. “I had Vic Carucci help me and he was a long time Buffalo guy with the (Buffalo) News and then he went to NFL.com and now he’s with the Browns writing for the Browns. What a perfect guy to help me out with these last five months of getting all my thoughts together and we’re dotting every ‘I’ and crossing every ‘T’. It’s going to be very nice. Very emotional at one point, but what he’s doing for me is have it flow very smoothly.

“You never want to forget anyone who was really important to you,  but you also want to relay a message in your speech. People just saw you on Sundays, but they don’t really know how you got there. They don’t know what it took to get on that podium. That’s really what I want to relay to everybody. Yeah there was hard work and dedication, but there were a lot of little things about me that people don’t know that kind of define me. That’s what I’m going to relay in my speech so it’s going to be really good.”
