NFL: Preseason-Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

A host of pass catches participated in a charity event on July 13th called Global Field Day that encourages children to play after a long year of being under quarantine. Among the attendees was Denver Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler, but it was Green Bay Packers wide receiver Devin Funchess who stole the day.

Dressed casually and in house slippers, Funchess keyed in on a ball dropped 750 feet from a helicopter to break the World Record for such a thing.

This ‘World Record’ was set by Rob Gronkowski just a few months ago in April when he caught a pass dropped from 600 feet.
