Reed was invited to speak to the Chargers by General Manager Tom Telesco, who formed a bond with the wide receiver when he served as an intern with the Buffalo Bills in the early nineties.
“Tom was an intern with the Bills back when I played, and he’d run to get balls on different fields two or three miles away!” he joked. “I’m just proud of him with what he’s done and how he’s come to be. His knowledge of the game is definitely going to bode well for the team. He asked me to come out here and speak to the team about my experiences in the game, how I played so long and all those types of things. Of course I’d love to. It’s a great opportunity to talk to these young guys.”
