Former Bills receiver Andre Reed has been a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame for each of the last six years. And for each of the last six years, Reed has learned on the day before the Super Bowl that he was voted down.
Now Reed has reached the point where he’s just tired of the whole thing.
“I can’t say any more about it,” Reed told the Buffalo News. “I’m so exhausted with it.”
Reed had planned to skip the festivities surrounding the Super Bowl this year but decided on Friday night to head to Indianapolis on Saturday, just in case he was asked to go on stage during the Hall of Fame announcement. But it didn’t work out, and Reed remains disappointed but careful not to say anything bad about the Hall of Fame process.
“I’m at a loss for words because I’ve said as much as I could say, politically, the way I want to say it,” Reed said. “I’m not going to go out and bash anybody. That’s not how I work. I don’t work like that.”
