    Makes sense, with the Pats looking to a likely starting duo of Amendola and Sanders. There was talk of him taking a pay cut, but that apparently did not work out. He had a $3M bonus due today at 4.

    Deuces.....

    He will be back by camp once he realizes he can't get more than a 1 year veteran minimum deal.

    True. I wouldn't be surprised to see him back, considering what free agency was like for him last year.

    Oh. Assume a pay cut/return is still a possibility, though. RT @jeffphowe: The Patriots will release Brandon Lloyd, according to a source.

    I think we draft a WR early now regardless of if we get Sanders. With this it also means there's a good chance Edelman's back.

    A total retooling of this grouping. Guess I'm kind of getting my wish. I wanted Lloyd gone because a team with championship aspirations couldn't start a three down WR with zero after catch play making skills....and the small ball Welker-centric offense couldn't put up points the last game every year. Never thought they'd kick'em all to the curb though.

    I said Lloyd SUCKED! and got flamed for it you hypocrites. Lloyd is too soft to be a Patriot WR the very WR's BB exposed...ie Holt and Bruce. The ones who spend more times on there knees than a Tai prostitute.:rolleyes:

    I didn't think he was that bad. I actually thought he did a good job for the time he had here.

    Am I lost? Lloyd is a good #2/#3 WR, why wouldn't a team offer him 2-3 million a year, he can't be that much of a headcase.

    I think he's gone for good IMO.

    He has played for a lot of teams in his career and never stuck. Red flag. NE usually is the last chance for those types. Ocho, Albert, etc...

    I think we will draft another X receiver to compete with Jones for the starting role. 1st or 2nd round.

    Re: Patriots will release Brandon Lloyd

    Obviously WR and TE aren't the same but I think it is important and obviously goes without being said but I will say it anyways. His two top targets are Gronk and AHern so its not a complete retool.

    1 of the 3 needs to step up huge to maintain the status quo of the prior Wes and 2TE trio. More realistically as a group of 3 (plus a rookie maybe) they need to do better and be more balance that the last years WR group.

    In odd way it almost doesnt matter how they get the system because Brady will have to figure out how to use a few of them regardless of system knowledge as their aren't any WR who do get the system.

    It would be nice to have one guy that can work the sideline. Hopefully a 1st round receiver like Hopkins or, worst case, Lloyd for on a vet min contract

    It was all about that roster bonus.

    50-50 chance he's back in TC.

    3 TE set with 2 WR who play slot roles like Amendola and Sanders. Throw deep seam routes and post ups to the TE's throw underneath to the WR and you have 3 TE's out in front blocking. Mix in Jones as a X receiver from time to time.

    Re: Patriots will release Brandon Lloyd

    Who is Brady going to throw to? Even if we sign Sanders, he' a third WR on a mediocre passing team. As it stands right now, this WR crew is worse than 06. Am I the only person who thought Lloyd was productive last year? The guy nearly had 1000 yards. I can't imagine Brady envisioned this receiving core when he reworked his deal.

    Amendola - unproven china doll
    Donald Jones - unproductive Bills reject
    Slater - should be only on special teams
    Gronk - finished last two years hurt
    Hernandez - injury prone

    I honestly think there are plenty of Division 1 secondaries that could check this core.

    Unlike those types though, Lloyd was productive. He didn't exactly find new life joining the Pats like Randy Moss or Corey Dillon did, but he was a good #2 WR, at least statistically. But I was hoping for the more explosive version that we saw with Denver, and that never came to fruition.
