Could the Chicago Bears make history this week by signing the NFL’s first female star?


Share post:

For a team without a proven kicker, the Chicago Bears have a chance to make NFL history by adding a two time Olympic Gold Medalist to their roster in the form of Carli Lloyd.

Carli Lloyd made waves last week when a video of her hitting a 55-yard field goal went viral at a Philadelphia Eagles practice.

Lloyd’s trainer told Fox Sports one NFL team has reached out to Lloyd with an offer to play in a preseason game this week.  “Today, she got another call from another NFL team,” Lloyd’s trainer, James Galanis told Fox Sports.  “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.”

Do you think Lloyd would make the Bears proud in an NFL uniform?
