    With the way Brandon Lloyd has been talking, it sounds like the Pats and Lloyd have a wink wink nudge nudge deal already in place!

    No Jersey Selected

    Heh --I posted on the other thread, but Bedard tweeted earlier:

    "At least we know 1 thing for certain about Lloyd: there's no under-the-table agreement with Pats, or the team would have told him to shut up"

    He will be 31 this summer. Does that fact cool any of the enthusiasm for him?

    Or they want to make sure Ocho knows it's time to put up or shut up. If he has time to bother watching the television that is. Or maybe Lloyd is just taking advantage of the fact that he isn't signed yet, and still can technically say/so what he wants. Ideally this would be the case, and may end up knocking half a million a year or so off his offer due to the media "question mark," lol.

    So... Ocho Cinco 2.0...

    Good luck with that Patriots. Sure he has more potential (I think?) but man... he'll get overpaid and under perform. Tom Brady immediately makes each receiver around him better but this just seems like wasted talent when the Pats can draft someone or pick up a developmental receiver that can learn the system and for a better price provide and kick ass under Brady.

    Lloys excelled in the Pats system under McD when in Denver.. that is why he is a good aquisition, many guys struggle in this system, he loves this system and can play in it.

    You might want to read up on Loyd a little. Loyd is the one receiver who has been in and thrived under Josh McDaniels. And this year would prove that Brady does not make all receivers better. Ochoa went to 6 pro bowls before having his worst year as a pro under Brady. The time to win is now. We don't need a developmental player, the Pats need immediate impact.

    Because the pats have been so adept at picking WR's to excel in this system :confused:
    As has been mentioned, Lloyd has already proven himself in this system.
    Hope your future posts have more thought put into them than your first.

    I think Lloyd will end up a patriots...he knows that he has only excelled with josh Mcdaniels...hence why he decided to follow him to the Rams.

    and I have to think this is also why he wont command much $$ on the market when guys like colston, meachem, vincent jackson, garcon, manningham are out there...theres something to be said for someone who is a system receiver, and the guy has only had 2 good years out of 11(those 2 being with Josh.mcdaniels) and before he was traded to the Rams this season, he looked rather average

    luckily, the system he excels in is our own..

    I really hope we get this deal done..I dont feel confident with Branch/Ocho being our #2 receiver again next year

    I think it comes down to Lloyd's price. A 31 year old WR with a less than consistent track record and numerous character concerns can't expect a top tier contract.

    Patriots could be a fit for Brandon Lloyd because of McDaniels - The Boston Globe

    Maybe McDaniels really is "the Lloyd whisperer" but when other players are questioning his value as a good teammate and some have openly questioned whether he may be bi-polar, you probably don't want to lock up such a player in a long term expensive contract.

    Plain and simple we need a #1 WR next season. As a short range slot receiver we are set at #2 with Welker, who would be a great #1 if he were taller and could stretch the field deep. Lloyd would be an improvement in the deep department over what we have, but there may be much better options out there for a long term solution.

    Signing Lloyd to a reasonable contract if they don't share the concerns of other teams and players would make sense if there's some concern about having Welker for the long term, but I think they may have their eye on other solutions for a #1 deep threat receiver.

    That's because your seeing what you want to see and not really focusing on what they probably see. Are there really much better options out there for a long term solution if we don't know how they will perform in THIS offense yet we do pretty much know they will want a lot more money over a longer term because of their age. And frankly, after Tomlin's comments and his performance down the stretch last season, I'd have at least as many concerns about Wallace as concerns about Lloyd. And no potential whispered solution for the former in my employ.

    The fact is that he has been on 5 TEAMs in 9 years. That is quite telling, of the person. Even after McDaniels got kicked out of Denver, IF Lloyd was that good of a receiver and teammate, why did Denver ship him out?

    I'm sure ex-teammates saying he is "NOT a team player" has some truth.
    If he does have the "MOSS attitude (ala, I want the ball..)" after he becomes a Patriot, he wont be a Patriot player long and would be wasted effort...

    IMO - I for one would trade for MikeWallace. Even if Lloyd has played in the WR system. Steelers are smart. They booted Holmes out, not because he stunk as a WR, but he was poison in the locker room. Steelers want to keep Wallace, which tells you that he probably is a good citizen in the clubhouse..

    Because, as Box_O_Rocks once put it, the Broncos are not so high on feetyballs acumen. . . .
