I'm going with future Hall of Famer Andre Reed.
  • 7 consecutive Pro Bowls (1988-1994)
  • 2 consecutive times AP second-team All-Pro (1989-1990)
  • 3 consecutive times NEA second-team All-Pro (1989-1991)
  • 4 consecutive times UPI first-team All-Conference (1989-1994)
  • 4 consecutive times PFW first-team All-Conference (1989-1994)
  • Six-time Hall of Fame finalist (2007-2012); semi-finalist in 2006
  • Member of the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame (Inducted in 2004)
  • Member of the Buffalo Bills Wall of Fame (Inducted in 2006)
  • Four-time AFC Champion (1990-1993)
Reed played 15 straight seasons for the Bills. He holds many all-time Bills records including receptions (941), receiving yards (13,095), receiving touchdowns (86), receptions in a game (15) and number of games with 100+ receiving yards (36). Reed was most known for his durability and his ability to generate yards after the catch. He was also not afraid to go over the middle and take a hit. He had great concentration and he was a very tough player who faced constant double teams.

The Jim Kelly to Andre Reed combination generated 663 receptions for 9,538 yards, both are good for second all-time behind only Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison. Reed had an amazing thirteen seasons with at least 50 receptions, a mark that is second all-time to only Jerry Rice.

Andre Reed was also very productive in the playoffs and he played a big role in the greatest comeback in NFL history. Reed finished the game with 8 receptions for 136 yards and 3 touchdowns to help propel the Bills over the Oilers in an AFC Wild Card game on the way to Buffalo's third straight Super Bowl.

Andre Reed's career statistics:
  • 951 receptions for 13,198 yards and 87 touchdowns; 75 carries for 500 yards and 1 touchdown
  • Playoffs (19 games): 85 receptions for 1,229 yards and 9 touchdowns; 7 carries for 27 yards

For me it comes down to, who left has a chance at the HOF? I think it is either Reed or Tasker, and as an overall player, I think Reed gets the nod.

I mistakenly clicked on Kemp. Meant to go with Reed, though it doesn't look like it's going to matter.
