USWNT star Carli Lloyd has reportedly been offered the chance to play in an NFL preseason game!
Carli Lloyd is currently a World Cup champ and could have become the first woman to play in an NFL game. The USWNT star got people talking last week when a video of her nailing a 55-yard field goal surfaced. (See below)
Lloyd was at a Philadelphia Eagles practice session and the video went viral! Her trainer, James Galanis, says after the above video went viral she was offered a chance to kick for an NFL team during the final week of the preseason. Her trainer did say she did not disclose the specific NFL team to him.
Will we see her this week in NFL’s final week of preseason?
Sadly, no. She cannot make the opportunity happen because it conflicts with her playing in the U.S. match against Portugal on Thursday.
Maybe soon though! Lloyd’s teammate, Megan Rapinoe, participated in on the fun after finding out this news.
