“UK police are on it but it’s a sad world, we acquired emergency passports, feeling unsafe and violated, can’t even stay in hotels safely anymore, need to be better people,” added Reed.

Reed was born and raised in Allentown Pennsylvania, his career took off in 1985 to 1999, he played for 15 seasons with the Buffalo Bills and one season in 2000 with Washington Redskins, he played at the  wide receiver. By the time he retired he was ranked the third in the league’s history, his 13 seasons with 9 consecutive with 50 plus receptions were exceeded by only one person Jerry rice at the time of his retirement.

“Reed made most of his career receptions over the middle where hard-hitting linebackers and safeties often lurked. He was really good at running the short route and turning it into a long gain, Jim (Kelly) loved it because it was an easy throw for a lot of yards. We all loved it because he could turn a nothing five-yard completion into a 65-yard touchdown. That’s what Andre’s gift was.” said teammate Steve Tasker.
