It is not common for players other than placekickers or punters to kick during an NFL game,
But when it does it's always worth noting. So if NFL teams are ever in need of a player who can double as a field goal kicker, they may have found their man.
During Kansas City Chiefs practice today, Chiefs safety Justin Reid decided to try his hand at kicking a field goal.
With a tee to his aid, he lined up and scored a 65-yard field goal.
If it was a proper kick during an NFL game, it would be the second longest in league history when the 66-yarder Justin Tucker captured against the Detroit Lions.
The clip has garnered over 1,600 views in a matter of minutes. Fans are already giving their thoughts on how impressive (or ineffective) this feat was:
One fan joked, "When I can't physically play safety anymore, I'll 100% be a kicker."
"Outside the ground is impressive. My longest one ever was 60.
Couldn't get off the ground for more than 45," wrote another.
"This is one of the most impressive things I've ever seen," wrote a third fan.
Justin Reid really does have a history as a kicker.
He played football in high school and last year served as an emergency kicker for the Houston Texans.
Reid is a man of many talents.
Placekicker Harrison Butker should probably have his back for some competition this month.
