NFL Hall of Famer and former VP of player personnel Gil Brandt suggested that Lloyd should be contacted by the Bears.
“Honestly, I don’t think it will be long until we see that a girl burst during this NFL barrier. I’d give her a fair tryout when I had been, say, the Bears.”
The Bears have attempted out nine kickers because this 2018 season’s end. Cody Parkey, their kicker past season missed 10 field objectives, including a possible game-winner within their 16-15 decrease in the NFC Wild Card round from the Eagles along with the group now has Eddy Pineiro because their sole kicker.
“So many folks are starting to believe’will there be a feminine [player] from the NFL?” I believe we are kind of as far as people empowerment.
I’ve definitely got some enquiries, I’ve definitely got folks talking. Whatever is possible but I’m strictly a soccer player and we’ll see what the future holds,” Lloyd told Sports Illustrated.
While the Eagles go to the Jets the US Women’s National Team perform with a friendly against Portugal in Philadelphia on Thursday. Could a woman kick in the NFL? Yes, Lloyd obviously has the leg power and others do but sadly it won’t happen within this preseason.
