Gabriel "Gabe" Reid (born May 28, 1977 in Pago Pago, American Samoa) is a former American football tight end for the Chicago Bears in the National Football League. He was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Brigham Young University.

Football experience[edit]

Reid played high school football for Leone High School in American Samoa and followed older brother Spencer Reid to Brigham Young University. Spencer was the first graduate from an American Samoan high school to play in the NFL, playing for the Carolina Panthers (1998) and Indianapolis Colts (1999).

On December 24, 2006, Lovie Smith converted Reid into a full back after starting full back, Jason McKie, injured his ankle. He fumbled a kickoff possession in the 2007 Super Bowl at his 35-yard line with Colts Player Tyjuan Hagler recovering and the Colts, after a fumble of their own, subsequently scored. After a four-year career, with only seven receptions for 57 yards and no touchdowns, Gabe was later released and has not played professional football since.

Reid is currently an unrestricted free agent.


Reid is also a husband and a father of four children, three girls and one boy. In addition, he is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). (More information found at )
