USWNT legend Carli Lloyd has had an offer to be the first female kicker in the NFL history after her 55-yard goal kick during an Philadelphia Eagles vs Baltimore Ravens practice went viral. Lloyd's trainer told Fox Sports that one NFL team approached Lloyd, wanting her to play in a preseason game on Thursday. However, Lloyd wasn't able to kick on Thursday, as she has a soccer game against Portugal that day. Her trainer wouldn't reveal which team approached Lloyd.
Carli Anne Lloyd is an American soccer player, two-time Olympic gold medalist, FIFA Women’s World Cup champion, 2015 FIFA Player of the Year and 2016 FIFA Player of the Year. She currently plays for Sky Blue FC in the NWSL and the United States Women’s National Soccer Team. Lloyd became the first person ever to score three goals in a FIFA Women’s World Cup final, and the second soccer player in history to score a hat trick in any senior FIFA World Cup Final. She also scored the gold medal-winning goals in the finals of the 2008 Summer Olympics and the 2012 Summer Olympics.
