What the future holds for Carli Lloyd may be an opportunity to kick for an NFL team.
With her trainer acknowledging that a team has offered the U.S. soccer star an opportunity to kick on Thursday night in the preseason finale, Lloyd says she’s indeed considering a chance to play for a pro football team.
“I am having discussions with my husband and [trainer] James [Galanis] about the reality of playing in the NFL,” Lloyd told FOXSports.com. “They both feel that I could do it and should consider it. So I’m seriously considering it, as it’s a challenge [and] I would probably enjoy it.”
She’s presumably referring to the opportunity to kick on Thursday for a still-unidentified team. And that would be the ultimate tryout for an opportunity to kick in a game that counts.
Lloyd made a 55-yard field goal after a joint Ravens-Eagles practice, through narrower-than-usual goalposts.
