On Tuesday the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens faced off in a joint practice which featured a few of the biggest names in the NFL - namely star quarterback Carson Wentz and Lamar Jackson.

However, it was a special guest who stole the show.

United States Women's National Team star Carli Lloyd made an appearance at the practice. During her time touring the facility and meeting with players and fans, Lloyd made headlines by nailing a few long field goals.

She drilled a 55-yard field goal, the video of which quickly went viral.

One former NFL front office executive and Hall of Famer took notice.

Former Dallas Cowboys vice president of player personnel, Gil Brandt, said someone - perhaps the Chicago Bears - should give her a tryout.

"Honestly, I don't think it will be long before we see a woman break through this NFL barrier. I'd give her an honest tryout if I were, say, the Bears," Brandt said.

It's been quite the year for Lloyd, who helped lead the USWNT to back-to-back World Cups this summer.

Will she make an NFL roster? Probably not, but it's fun to see what she can do on the field.

We'd love to see the Bears give her a shot.
