Reed is one step closer to joining Jonathan Ogden and Ray Lewis in the Pro Football Hall of Fame

Super Bowl XLVII - Baltimore Ravens v San Francisco 49ers

The greatest safety in the history of the NFL is now on track to receive what he’s earned: a gold jacket. Earlier today, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced their official modern-era nomination list, consisting of 102 players.

Reed is not the only first-ballot candidate; he is joined by TE Tony Gonzalez, CB Champ Bailey and LB London Fletcher.
