BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - There are two things Andre Reed is most certain of in preparing to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend.
The eight-year wait to hear his name called really didn't feel that long. More important, the timing of the announcement in February was fitting given the sudden uncertainty hovering over his beloved Buffalo Bills.
Jim Kelly, the Hall of Fame quarterback, is battling cancer. And Ralph Wilson, the team's Hall of Fame owner, died in March. The Bills are on the market, with concerns of the franchise potentially relocating under a new owner.
As a result, Reed views his induction as something capable of providing anyone who's ever had a connection to the Bills a joyous diversion by giving them a reason to celebrate Saturday night.
