If the Chiefs ever need an emergency kicker, they’ll know where to turn.
Kansas City let safety Justin Reid kick an extra point during the second quarter of its preseason opener against the Bears on Saturday, and Reid split the uprights.
The chance during the game came after Reid made a 65-yard field goal off a tee during camp, earning some Twitter buzz. He was asked by reporters in Kansas City about the possibility of kicking during the preseason game, saying, “Oh, that’d be fun. That’d be so fun.”
While with the Texans last season, Reid also got a chance on a kickoff during a preseason game.
“I’m trying to plant some seeds,” Reid said. “Yeah. It’s gonna be up to the coaches, and whatever they decide, I’m good with.”
The Chiefs are set with a starter at the position in Harrison Butker, but should he get hurt, Reid seems to be a viable replacement.
