    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.

    It obviously wasn't a production issue.

    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.

    Re: Patriots will release Brandon Lloyd

    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.
