'The Mission:' Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014’s Andre Reed
Throughout the 2022 NFL season, the vision of "The Mission" is to connect viewers and listeners with Hall of Famers to help break down some of the league’s prime-time matchups, historical matchups and current news storylines, and to learn about the treasured life lessons the game of football has taught these gridiron warriors.
To help recap Week 1 and break down Week 2 of the NFL schedule, joining "The Mission" is Buffalo Bills legend ANDRE REED, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2014.
Throughout Reed’s 16-year career, he surpassed 1,000 receiving yards four times, which ranks 10th in NFL history. He is also 11th in league history with 87 career touchdown receptions.
The record setting doesn’t stop there for the former Bills Legend, who recorded 27 receptions in his four consecutive Super Bowl appearances (1990-93). That’s the second-highest career Super Bowl receptions total in NFL history.
With 323 receiving yards — third most in Super Bowl history — Reed broke down some of the top players in today’s game that he says fans should keep an eye on this season.
"I’m specifically looking out for Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants this season," Reed said. "He has had injuries the last three years. This offseason, he has worked hard to come back, and the first week he showed us that he is that player again."
