Buffalo Bills great Andre Reed drops f-bombs on Jon Bon Jovi, Johnny Manziel


Andre Reed spent his entire 16-year NFL career with the Buffalo Bills, save for a swan song season with the Washington Redskins in 2000, so it should come as no surprise that he has some very strong opinions about the team’s impending sale.

Reed also is a renowned quote machine, so when he opened up recently as part of a fascinating article in New York Magazine published on Tuesday, it should also not come as a shock that the Hall of Fame inductee had some very provocative things to say, not only about the Bills, but also about the current NFL lightning rod, Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel.

And when Reed gets going, he apparently enjoy letting the expletives fly.

Reed’s first target is Jon Bon Jovi. The rocker reportedly is involved with a potential ownership group making a serious inquiry into purchasing the Bills. That’s all well enough, but rumors have swirled that the Bon Jovi ownership group may have its sights on possibly moving the team to Toronto.

This has caused some embittered consternation among Buffaloians (?). So much so, in fact, that an anti-Bon Jovi movement has developed in Buffalo, including but not limited to a quest to get his music banned in the city.

And the rumors alone compelled Reed to let loose on the rocker, dropping an f-bomb on Bon Jovi in the process.

“Man, f**k Bon Jovi!” Reed said. “You might as well just take this city, throw it in the river, and let it go down Niagara Falls.”

And then Reed set his sights on Manziel, a player he thinks that as a rookie should not be seen nor heard.

During the interview, which took place at a bar, a television tuned to ESPN featured an image of a tweet from Manziel in which the rookie refers to LeBron James as “my guy.”

“Who the f**k is Johnny Manziel?” Reed asked. “LeBron ain’t your guy! You’re not ‘Johnny Football.’ You’re ‘Johnny Rookie Bitch.’ ”

Reed goes on to contend that a town like Buffalo would put up with Manziel’s party-hearty shenanigans. “They’d boo that motherfu**er outta here,” he said. “The fans would put him in his place.”

Ladies and gentlemen. Andre Reed. Somebody get him a show on NFL Network. Better yet, given his evident proclivity for profanity, maybe HBO or Showtime would be a better — and wiser — choice.
