Patriots Agree To Terms With WR Brandon Lloyd
The New England Patriots have agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Terms were not disclosed. A fourth round pick out of Illinois by the San Francisco 49ers in 2003, Lloyd bounced around several franchises before his career took off in 2010, earning a Pro Bowl nod after catching 77 passes for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns in a Josh McDaniels-directed offense. Lloyd had talked openly about reuniting with McDaniels, who is now the offensive coordinator in New England. Though he’ll turn 31 before training camp, Lloyd gives the Patriots a deep threat at the receiver position, a weakness that was evident throughout the 2011 season.
