Reid is signing in Kansas City to help replace Tyrann Mathieu (who also joined K.C. after a stint in Houston). They’re big shoes to fill for the 25-year-old safety, as Mathieu was the brains and muscle behind everything the Chiefs defense did the past three seasons.
Reid agreed to a three-year, $31.5 million contract with the Chiefs, which includes $20 million guaranteed. Asides a twitter post showing support to his new team, Justin Reid also made his intentions to his new teammates clear on his instagram page.

On Instagram, Justin Reid thanked his previous team for their support in a touching message before going on to address his new teammates. “I’m so lucky to have started my career in Houston. I have so many memories I’ll cherish from the football field to the community. Houston has a special place in my heart and there is no better place that I could have come to as a rookie to learn how to be a better pro and a better man.”
“I’d like to thank the McNair family for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to play the game I love in this incredible city. I’d like to thank all the coaches I’ve had through the years that were able to fine tune my game and take me to the next level. Most of all, I want to thank the fans and my teammates… you’ve all made my journey here absolutely unforgettable and I will cherish all the great memories.”
“However, the end of one chapter is the beginning of the next! I’m so excited for this next phase and I’ve only got one thing to say. To my new coaches, teammates, and the city of Kansas City: I’M READY! Let’s get to work and win another SuperBowl 💪🏾 #ChiefsKingdom”
