When Zay Jones failed to haul in a fourth-down pass late in Sunday's 9-3 loss to the Panthers, Andre Reed knew how he felt.

In fact, Reed, the Hall of Famer, used to keep a journal of every pass he thought he should've caught.

Reed took drops hard, and so did Jones. But it happens, Reed told Jay Skurski. What matters is how you react.

“We're all human, and some of the greatest ones have been in a slump,” Reed said. “Michael Jordan has. Roger Federer has. All the great athletes in their respective sports have. You've got to be able to forget it and move on, because it's going to happen again."
