HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2014

6 p.m. Saturday, Canton, Ohio • TV: ESPN2

Michael Strahan is pleased to know he is scheduled to go last during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. That means the former New York Giants star pass-rusher won’t be the first to break down in tears once the 2014 seven-member class is inducted Saturday.

“I am not going to be the first one to crack,” Strahan pronounced with a familiar gaptoothed grin Friday. “But it’ll be interesting. I just told the guys, ‘It’s OK. If you’re going to cry, this is the opportunity to cry where nobody can say anything to you.’ ”

If that’s the case, Andre Reed might not make it through Friday. The former Buffalo Bills receiver was having trouble keeping his emotions in check after meeting former teammate Jim Kelly, the Hall of Fame quarterback who is battling cancer.

“Three months ago, we didn’t know if [Kelly] was going to be in Canton,” Reed said. “Yeah, my heart kind of beat a bit faster when I saw him.”
