Having a female kicking field goals for your team might not be as far into the future as you probably though, thanks to Carli Lloyd.
The prospect of a woman playing in an NFL game seems far off, but apparently not as far as we thought.
USWNT star Carli Lloyd made an appearance at Philadelphia Eagles training camp a week ago, where she gave out kicking field goals a try. Lloyd nailed a 55-yarder with ease.

The video was so impressive that not just one, but multiple NFL teams were so impressed, that they reached out to Lloyd, one even offering a spot for her to play in a preseason game this week.
Well, Lloyd is reportedly “seriously considering” that tryout as well as possibly a career as a kicker for an NFL team.
