Andre Reed Once Again A Hall Of Fame Finalist

Former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Reed is once again a finalist for enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and many believe that if Reed is going to achieve the honor, his best chance is this year.

Reed is on a list of 17 finalists that includes 15 modern-era nominees and two previously announced senior nominees. Reed is one of three eligible wide receivers, joined by Cris Carter and Tim Brown. As Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com explains, however, Reed is considered to have a leg up on Carter and Brown because he's made the cut to a list of 10 finalists in previous years, while the other two star receivers have not.

There are no set rules for a number of enshrinees in a given year, but the typical count is five modern-era players, with one or both senior nominees making six or seven. There are no slam dunk nominees this year, so keep your fingers crossed for Reed when the official announcement is made on February 4 - one day before Super Bowl XLVI.

Another former Bill, special teams ace Steve Tasker, was eliminated in this cut-down to 17 from a list of 26.
