News 4 Sports has confirmed that Andre Reed has been informed that he is a member of the 2014 Hall of Fame class.

This year marks the eighth year Reed was named a finalist for the Hall.

Reed came out of little Kutztown (Pa.) University and played his first 15 seasons with Buffalo, getting to four Super Bowls, but never winning one. His final season was with Washington. His 951 career receptions are third in league history, highlighted by nine consecutive seasons of 50-plus catches.

The class of 2014 also included defensive end Michael Strahan, punter Ray Guy, defensive back Aeneas Williams and defensive end Claude Humphrey. Two first-time eligible players, linebacker Derrick Brooks and offensive tackle Walter Jones, were also selected.
