Carli Lloyd Received Offers To Kick In NFL Preseason Games
NFL Hall of Famer and former VP of player personnel Gil Brandt proposed that Lloyd should be contacted by the Bears.
“Frankly, I really don’t think it will be long before we see a woman break through this NFL barrier. I would give her an honest tryout if I were, say, the Bears.”
The Bears have tried out nine kickers since the 2018 season’s end. Their kicker last year, cody Parkey missed 10 field objectives, including a within their loss in the NFC Wild Card round against the Eagles and the group has Eddy Pineiro as their single kicker.
“So many individuals are beginning to think’will there be a lady [participant ] in the NFL?’ I believe we’re kind of so far as equality and women empowerment.
I’ve definitely got a few enquiries, I got people talking. Anything’s possible but I’m strictly a football player and we’ll see what the future holds,” Lloyd told Sports Illustrated.
While the Eagles visit the Jets the US Women’s National Team play with a friendly. Can a woman kick in the NFL? Yes, even Lloyd has the leg strength and others do too but sadly it won’t happen within this preseason.
