Former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Reed gave a heartfelt acceptance speech Saturday night as he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. During his speech, he paid homage to his former quarterback, Jim Kelly, and acknowledged Kelly's courageous bout with cancer.

The speech itself was moving, but what happened afterward was fantastic. After 663 receptions between the duo, Kelly threw one more to Reed in their new uniforms—their gold jackets.

CBS Sports' Will Brinson tweeted the pass:

This came after the seven-time Pro-Bowler's speech in which he gave Kelly the highest possible praise, via NFL Around the League:

Reed said, "You know the old saying, bro—12 plus 83 always equals six."

This reception may not have earned them six points, but it capped off a memorable induction.
