Less than a week after being announced as one of the seven members of the NFL Hall of Fame Class of 2014, former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Reed has announced his choice of inductor at the enshrinement ceremony.
In an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Reed stated that he wants his Hall of Fame former head coach Marv Levy, who was present with him on the show, to be the man to induct him into Canton.
“Marv, I love you, man,” Reed told Levy on Thursday. “We were like family, and we know we wouldn’t be where we are without each other.”
Levy, 88, responded by saying that he’s looking forward to that weekend.
Reed, 50, was a member of the Bills for all 12 seasons that Levy was head coach. Their teams in the early 1990s made it to four straight Super Bowls, a feat that has never been done prior to or since they pulled it off.
The 2014 NFL Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony takes place on Saturday, August 2 in Canton, Ohio. It’s just one day before Levy turns 89 years old.
Reed will be enshrined alongsided Michael Strahan, Walter Jones, Derrick Brooks, Aeneas Williams, Claude Humphrey and Ray Guy this summer.
