Reed looks to have HOF credentials

Posted by Chris Brown on January 31, 2009 – 9:37 pm

I suppose the one saving grace in Andre Reed’s omission from this year’s Hall of Fame induction class is that Cris Carter did not gain entry either. But if you match Reed’s numbers up to the 19 post-World War II wide receivers currently enshrined in Canton, he looks like a Hall of Famer to me.

2. Ark Monk   940
3. Steve Largent  819
4. James Lofton  764
4. Charlie Joiner  750
