PHILADELPHIA After her 55-yard field goal at a recent Eagles-Ravens joint practice went viral, U.S. womens soccer team star Carli Lloyd told Fox Sports that she is seriously considering an offer that her trainer James Galanis said Lloyd received from an anonymous NFL team.
I am having discussions with my husband (Brian Hollins) and James about the reality of playing in the NFL, the Delran, Pa., native told Fox. They both feel that I could do it and should consider it. So Im seriously considering it, as its a challenge. I would probably enjoy it.
Galanis started the hype train by telling Fox earlier that at least three NFL teams had approached Lloyd to come to their training camps. One of them offered her a place on the team for a preseason game Thursday night, but Lloyd turned it down because the U.S. women are playing at Lincoln Financial Field at the same hour.
