Quote:
Could English soccer star David Beckham be bending kicks through NFL uprights this year? One NFL scout contacted Beckham earlier this offseason to gauge his interest in trying out as a kicker, the U.K. Daily Mirror reported Tuesday.

Beckham reportedly impressed as a football kicker during a 2007 Adidas commercial with Reggie Bush (seen above). While other international stars such as former Tottenham striker Clive Allen and Welsh rugby star Paul Thorburn have tried their luck on the gridiron, no high-profile soccer star ever has made the successful conversion to American football.

While I highly doubt he actually signs with an NFL team, it would be very interesting nonetheless. This article has me wondering which team offered him the tryout.

I doubt anything will come of this.

For what its worth, the Daily Mirror is basically a tabloid. Try to follow the Premiere League (and player transfers), and you see that the Daily Mirror will print just about any rumor.

The article says it was offered to him a few years ago. None the less, this isn't NFL news.

A scout contacted him earlier this offseason but he doesn't feel that it's right for him. Perhaps he can change his mind within the next few months.

I guess yea, not really NFL news. Just something interesting that has potential to be a ground-breaking story if something were to come of this.

As stated a couple times already, this isn't news.
