Andre Reed Joins Bills Wall of Fame

Andre Reed has been selected as the 23rd member of the Bills’ Wall of Fame.

The Buffalo Bills announced Sunday they will add the name of retired receiver Andre Reed to the Ralph Wilson Stadium Wall of Fame. Reed is the team’s career receptions leader with 941 catches for 13,095 yards during a 15-year career in which he helped the Bills win an unprecedented four AFC titles in the 1990s. He also has 87 career touchdowns, tied for first on the team with running back Thurman Thomas. Reed ranks fourth on the NFL list with 951 catches for 13,198 yards.

He will become the 23rd member of the Bills’ Wall of Fame, an honor created in 1980 to reward the team’s former members, including coaches and administrators.

There’s little doubt that Reed is deserving. Still, it strikes me as strange that a team that has never won a championship has 23 members in its hall of honor. By contrast, the Dallas Cowboys have five Super Bowl wins and another three appearances, has only 17 in their Ring of Honor–and three of those were inducted this year.
