Carli Lloyd Received Offers To Kick In NFL Preseason Games
NFL Hall of Famer and former VP of player personnel Gil Brandt suggested that the Bears must contact Lloyd.
“Frankly, I don’t think it will be long until we see that a woman burst through this NFL barrier. I would give her an honest tryout if I had been, say, the Bears.”
The Bears have tried out nine kickers since the conclusion of the 2018 season. 10 field objectives were missed by cody Parkey, including a potential game-winner within their 16-15 loss in the NFC Wild Card round against the Eagles along with the group has Eddy Pineiro as their lone kicker.
“So many men and women are beginning to believe’will there ever be a female [participant ] from the NFL?” I believe we’re kind of at the crossroads so far empowerment.
I got some enquiries, I have definitely got people talking. Anything’s possible but right now I’m strictly a football player and we’re going to see what the future holds,” Lloyd told Sports Illustrated.
The US Women’s National Team perform with a friendly while the Eagles and the Jets go to at MetLife Stadium. Could a woman kick in the NFL? Yes, Lloyd clearly has the leg strength and others do but sadly it will not occur in this preseason.
