    Would add the deep threat this offense is missing. I also read that he has really good hands beyond 20 yds or something like that, he rarely drops passes.

    rather give price a change. wes , branch are old guys ,we need youth guys atleast 1 or 2 option as brady career ends.

    this guy is also 30 yrs old. also 4.75 million bonus that ocho took.

    Welker's also 30, that doesnt mean he doesnt have a few good years left.

    Regarding Chad's $, the money's been spent, it doesn't matter.

    Disagree , i see 2-3 yrs from now. we resign wes and he becomes the elder wr option and 3rd down option our TE stays. time to see if we can develop younger faster guys.

    problem with outside guys is when they lose 1 step in speed its all over as ocho and moss showed us. we have wes and TE to run around between the hashes.so why get some one to come and develop for next year ?. He has to be signed for a contract at the end of year

    I know gaffney and cadwell did the in year thing but they where also 1-2 optiosn so brady worked with them everydown. Loyd will be 3-4 the option and will get so few snaps i wonder if he will learn the offense and contributed in the limited play/practice time.

    He used to drop a ton of easy passes, but make the ridiculously difficult ones. That's what got him a bad rap for a long time. It seems like he has sorted out that issue. His talent isn't in question, it was always a mental thing with him.

    Please make this happen! He's everything Chad isn't. You know.....smart. Helps that he was in the "system" because of McDaniels . Heck, he may actually run the right route....oh boy, even line up correctly!

    Although I think they need more help on Defense, this would be cool by me too. A fine By-week gift. Hello Mr. Llyod, buh-bye Ocho.

    There's no reason why getting Lloyd means we can't develop Edelperson and Price, but having another solid option for TFB, instead of the invisible man, gives us a better chance of a SB now.

    I do not see it, there are only so many touches and we have enough guys in the offensive side..

    If there was a serious discussion about a 4-3 pass rusher, maybe.. but not a WR..

    Given what the other brother Gronk had to say about Denver's offense being similar to the Pats, Lloyd's time getting up to speed could be minimal with the bye week.

    Using a 4th or 5th round pick on Lloyd would be a steal if he was drafted out of college.

    alot of the arguments have stated that the pats use a heavy 2 TE set...while true, I think its worth asking whether the pats run that set most of the time because

    a. the TE duo is so dynamic you want them on the field at all times
    b. we have no reliable option at 3rd WR

    im sure its abit of both, but do you want someone like hernandez who is pretty injury prone playing heavy snaps later in the season??

    7snaps for ocho is pretty foreboding.....Belichick decided to trade for a receiver like Ocho(and now interest in lloyd) over tate for a reason...he must feel that the pats need a solid 3rd WR option to play more 3 WR sets..and save welker, hernandez, branch from getting "lit up" 6-7times a game

    Lloyd has experience with the system under Mcdaniels(who apparantly ran the same offense) so he should be able to assimilate easier.

    I wouldnt be surprised to see some moves made today..

    Samsonite Make Your Case: Should the Patriots trade for Jared Allen?

    Patriots considering Jared Allen? 29 years of age, last 4 years' sacks:

    2007: 15.5
    2008: 14.5
    2009: 14.5
    2010: 11.0

    And so far, in just 6 games in 2011: 9.5 sacks.

    This is a guy that is definitely worth a first round pick. The Pats have two of them for next year. Try to get away with a 2nd and a 5th, but if you have to, spend your worst 1st rounder. The guy is a monster.

    with the guys on PUP who are coming up; there will be some tough personnel decisions coming. If this is considered an either or ocho or lloyd; i guess I would say do it. But there may not be room for lloyd either.

    Although i was not overly excited about the possibility of ocho prior to the deal; I really thought he would work out better than he has. I got excited about him being a good solid (not the biggest) part of the O.
    .... terribly disappointing.

    part of me doesnt want to let him go; thinking he still will show up. I wonder if BB since he used to say all those great things about ocho will have any more difficulty letting him go than he had with lawyer or seymour etc. Those guys had more current upside at their time than ocho has shown.

    I think bill sees the need for a playmaker at the #3 wide receiver spot to beat the elite teams in the playoffs especially if Hernandez is hurting like he was against the Jets last year...brandon tate wasnt a guy you wanted to rely on to make the big play

    looking into trading for Lloyd(and ocho only finding about 7snaps last game) basically shows that they dont have faith that ocho will be able to fill that role

    I don't see the trade happening but based on Ocho's 7 snaps only and the offense as a whole's struggles yesterday it certainly increases the motivation to consider a possible upgrade for a team headed for post season.

    I don't like this deal. We have Price and Ocho struggling to get on the field because we're doing so many 2 WR/2 TE/1 RB sets.

    I think Price has a lot of upside and I think Ocho can still be a valuable pickup for this team.

    If we're going to drop a pick in a trade I'd rather add a body on defense.

    i still think it was very telling that we explored the trade. Ocho provides nothing (yet) and he is in the way of Price to move up (my opinion).

    maybe BB just linked us to Lloyd to send a message to Ocho. Either way, Ocho needs to fugure out the playbook very soon.

    It's a good addition for the Rams, but it comes too late to save their season. I can only guess that this was made to try to help Bradford continue his progression for next year. Without Amendola, the Rams receiving corps has been terrible. Lloyd might walk right into the WR1 spot as early as this upcoming week against Dallas.

    Not to be facetious, but I think it was as much about 2012 and beyond as it was about this year.

    After all, I'd put no better than a 50-50 chance on Branch being back next year.

    Agreed. I believe Welker and Branch will be over 30 and FAs next year.

    We don't know if Lloyd would have been the right choice, but acquiring him would have made sense on a number of fronts.
