Patriots Sign WR Brandon Lloyd

Brandon Lloyd

Free agent WR Brandon Lloyd has been connected to joining the Patriots since the end of the regular season. Now all the talk has been confirmed as New England inked the veteran receiver to a three-year deal worth $12 million.

Lloyd has bounced around the NFL for the better part of last decade playing for San Francisco, Washington, Chicago, Denver and most recently St. Louis. He had his breakout season during the 2010-11 season with career highs in receptions (77), yds (1,448) and TD (11). It was there that he and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels found each other. Lloyd was traded by Denver to St. Louis last season after only four games and struggled to find consistency with QB Sam Bradford and the anemic Rams offense.

McDaniels hadn’t landed back in New England for more than 12 seconds before the Brandon Lloyd talk began and now with the pair re-united, many believe the receiver can have another productive year and become that outside threat the passing game has been missing for several seasons.

The Pats didn’t stop there, they also signed former Colts WR Anthony Gonzalez. Gonzalez has been plagued by the injury bug for several seasons with injuries to both legs and knees and has played in only 11 games since 2008.
