Football players are some of, if not the best athletes in the world. A lot of these guys spend their entire lives being athletes. Most of these guys play multiple sports as kids and multiple positions.

If you were to approach a player and ask what position he played at high school, there is a high chance he once played quarterback or running back, heck, even kicker and punter. For the Chiefs’ new safety Justin Reid played soccer and was his high school football team’s kicker. He showed that on Monday he can still do that well.

Granted, this isn’t a real game setting, but the NFL record for the longest field goal ever made was 64-yards until the Baltimore Ravens’ Justin Tucker broke the record by making a game-winning, 66-yarder against the Detroit Lions last year.

Not a lot of actual kickers can even hit a 65-yarder in practice.

Sometime last season Reid did the kickoff for the Houston Texans, and he absolutely boomed it. That was all we had really seen of that talent. On Monday, Reid showed that he can make field goals too.

While Harrison Butker is very good, one of the best in the league, we now know that the Kansas City Chiefs have a boot in their emergency kicker. While we hope the Chiefs do not ever have to use Reid, it would be amazing to see him kick in a real game.

Maybe we might see that this preseason.

Head coach Andy Reid has been known to let his player have some fun before the season starts. Hopefully, we get to see the new Chiefs safety kick one through the uprights.
