Leading US football star Carli Lloyd said Thursday that she would be "stupid" not to consider the possibility of playing for an NFL team during the 2020 season.
Lloyd's ability to play in the league intensified this week when his coach revealed to Fox Sports that she was considering proposing to a team to play in their final pre-season game. Lloyd, however, had other obligations with respect to American football but did not rule out the possibility of trying next season.

"I would be foolish not to consider the idea of doing it," she told reporters, according to ABC's Jeff Skversky. "I know there are challenges, there are big men on the line. I'm not naive for that. But I'm not trying to be a quarterback or a running back.
"I think that with good technique, good practice, reduce it in two … I think I can do it. And I do not think there's anything wrong with me, I think I can do it.
While Keenan Allen, the Los Angeles Chargers receiver, was skeptical of Lloyd's fair position if his kick was blocked, Hall of Fame member Morten Andersen offered to train her.

Andersen tweeted a video of himself with an offer to Lloyd on Tuesday.
"If you want to know what it's been like to play in the NFL for 25 years, contact me and I'd like to work with you," he said. "Go and get it."
Lloyd impressed several people by scoring a few long-term goals during a joint training session between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Baltimore Ravens.
