After several years playing for the Cincinnati Bengals, Reid retired from football and began his musical career, co-writing several hit singles for country music artists, including Ronnie Milsap's "Stranger in My House", which won a Grammy Award for Best Country Song in 1984. Reid later began a solo recording career, releasing two studio albums for Columbia Records. He charted seven singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts as a singer, including the Number One hit "Walk on Faith."

Reid was named All-America in 1969 while playing at Penn State under coach Joe Paterno. In 1969, he won the Outland Trophy for being the best interior lineman in college football and the Maxwell Award for being the top college football player. In his senior year (1969), the tackle spearheaded Penn State on defense with 89 tackles and was a unanimous All-America choice and All-East selection. He also finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy balloting.
