WATCH: Chiefs S Justin Reid nails 65-yard field goal in practice

The Kansas City Chiefs’ emergency kicker, safety Justin Reid, got some work in during training camp on Sunday, Aug. 7.

A former Soccer player in high school and at Stanford, Reid has already been working on his emergency duties with his new team this offseason. Most safeties have emergency jobs like cornerback or linebacker, but Reid has been doing the emergency kicking duties since his time with the Houston Texans.

Since arriving in Kansas City, he’s still working on his kicking game. He landed a nice kick in front of Hall of Fame kicker Jan Stenerud earlier in the offseason, but on Sunday he showed out for the big crowd at “Family Fun Day” at training camp.

He started by working on some shorter kicks at the onset of practice.

Reid later shared a clip of his distance work, which included a make from over 60 yards out.

Frankly, the kick probably would have made it from an even further distance. Reid certainly had enough leg on it. Should the Chiefs need an emergency kicker in the place of Harrison Butker, it sure seems like they’re in a good spot with Reid’s talents.
