Any NFL team that needs quarterback depth may want to give this referee a look.

During Thursday night's preseason game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Chicago Bears—the Bears won, 20-19—one official got a chance to show off his arm. He was positioned behind the secondary on the play, but when he saw a penalty near the line of scrimmage, he sent a flag flying.

The official distance of the throw: 31 yards.
