Could we see soccer star Carli Lloyd trade her soccer jersey for a football jersey?
Lloyd was approached by multiple NFL teams after a video of her kicking a 55-yard field goal at Philadelphia Eagles training camp last week went viral. One of those teams, Galanis said, presented Lloyd with the opportunity to be part of the roster.
“Today, she got another call from another NFL team,” Galanis told me in a telephone conversation on Monday. “The one that called today, I don’t want to say who it is, was willing to put her on the roster for their next (game). They were willing to put her on the roster. “She was told (she could) play on Thursday, the NFL game, but she is playing Thursday with the national team, so that was the conflict.”
“We are thinking about what it would do to the sport itself, every sport at every level. She would be the first female that’s really playing with males, and what would it do to the whole equality (issue).”
Could Lloyd have a chance to kick in an NFL game? It looks like this could be very possible.
