Carli Lloyd Received Offers To Kick In NFL Preseason Games
NFL Hall of Famer and former VP of player personnel Gil Brandt proposed that the Bears must contact Lloyd.
“Honestly, I don’t think it will be long before we see that a girl burst during this NFL barrier. I would give her an honest tryout when I had been, say, the Bears.”
The Bears have attempted out nine kickers since the 2018 season’s end. 10 field goals were missed by their kicker past season, cody Parkey, including a potential game-winner within their loss in the NFC Wild Card round against the Eagles and the team has Eddy Pineiro because their sole kicker.
“So many individuals are starting to believe’will there ever be a female [participant ] from the NFL?’ I believe we are sort of at that crossroads so far as equality and women empowerment.
I have definitely got some enquiries, I’ve definitely got people talking. Anything’s possible but I’m strictly a football player and we’ll find out what the future holds,” Lloyd told Sports Illustrated.
The US Women’s National Team play a friendly against Portugal in Philadelphia on Thursday while the Eagles visit the overburdened in MetLife Stadium. Could a woman kick in the NFL? Yes, Lloyd has the leg strength and others do too but sadly it will not happen in this preseason.
