This could be interesting.

When Lauren Silberman shows up at an NFL Regional Scouting Combine for a kicking tryout in New Jersey next month, her leg strength won't be the only facet drawing people's attention. Silberman also will make football history by becoming the first woman to participate in the event.


Silberman, 28, resides in New York City and is a University of Wisconsin graduate who played club soccer at the school.

Lauren's father said she had no background as a kicker but had made a 40-yard field goal before, which encouraged her to attend the Regional Combine, even if the odds are stacked against her.

Sorry, this just makes it seem like a publicity stunt.

I hope she thrives in the NFL.

MMA has had women in the sport but only now the NFL of MMA has a women MMA fight.
