Soccer champ Carli Lloyd has been on the lips of many in NFL circles recently after she was seen booting some 55-yard field goals at Philadelphia Eagles practice.

Really, the way she was booming her kicks through the uprights with ease was something to behold.

She also divulged that she is “seriously considering” the “reality of playing in the NFL.”

“I am having discussions with my husband and James about the reality of playing in the NFL,” Lloyd said, per Fox Sports. “They both feel that I could do it and should consider it. So I’m seriously considering it, as it’s a challenge (and) I would probably enjoy it.”

For what it’s worth, a former Pro Bowl kicker recently gave his seal of approval that Lloyd could make it in the NFL.

Though, not everyone is convinced it’s a great idea.
