Last month, Andre Reed (Class of 2014) was announced as one of the four Pro Football Hall of Fame Gold Jacket coaches for this year's 3-day adult fantasy camp in September, along with Cris Carter (Class of 2013), Brian Dawkins (Class of 2018), and Terrell Davis (Class of 2017).

 

Andre's statement:

“When I heard about the Hall of Fame Fantasy Camp, I knew I wanted to be a part of it,” shared Reed. “This an opportunity for true fans of the game to experience it like never before and showcase their skills at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. I am looking forward to scouting, drafting and coaching alongside my fellow Hall of Famers, Cris Carter, Terrell Davis and Brian Dawkins.”"

Excerpt:

 

"Each participant will get the chance to participate in NFL Combine-like drills to showcase their skills to the Gold Jackets, who during an NFL Draft style event, will draft their teams for the games.

 

Every player will get to play in scrimmages leading up to their game that will take place in Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.

 

Included with the event registration fee are hotel stay, meals, ground transportation in Canton, plus each participant will receive an exclusive HOF Gear Pack and a behind the scenes tour of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. There will also be social gatherings and networking opportunities for each participant."

I have to admit it was funny watching the men, many of whom were out-of-shape (to be kind), participate in the combine and drills above, but it looks like they had fun.

Speaking of Andre when are the Bills going to retire #83? He deserves it just as much as 12,34,and 78.

 

Not sure about that....he was a great player, a hall of famer.  Number retiring is another level, not sure he is there.

When I think of the Super Bowl teams I think of 12,34,78,83 first. IMHO I think he should have his number retired.

The other guys were first or second ballot guys, Andre was not.  He was not as dominant at his position as the others.  I agree I think of him too with those SB teams.  Tasker/Talley and some others also.
