Former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Reed will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday. The ceremony will take place in Canton, Ohio. It will be followed by a HOF football game on Sunday.

Reed retired after the 2002 football season. He ranked third on the NFL list with 951 catches. Reed was a part of the team when they won four consecutive AFC championships and from 1990 to 93. He was also responsible for the "largest comeback" in NFL history. In the 1993 playoff game, Reed caught three touchdowns in the second half of the game against the Houston Oilers.

According to the Associated Press, Reed said given all that's been going on with the team, the induction is a "breath of fresh air." He says he's glad to be at the forefront of something to be "happy" about.
