Reed made a name for himself while playing for the Buffalo Bills. He was drafted out of Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in the fourth round in 1985. He played with the Bills through the 1999 season. With the Bills, he was named to the Pro Bowl seven times, he was a second-team All Pro twice, he played on four AFC Championship teams and he is in the Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame.

Before the 2000 season, he signed a three-year contract with the Broncos. However, after being buried on the depth chart and after being inactive during the team's season opener, he asked for his release from the team. He signed with the Redskins and retired after the 2000 season.
