It’s official. The Denver Broncos have put their #1 wide receiver, Brandon Lloyd, on the trading block, according to Pro Football Talk.
Here’s an excerpt from Mike Kliss of the Denver Post, who broke the story:
Klis says “three or four” teams are interested, with Carolina and Tennessee believed to be among them.
So, I’m thinking yes. Lloyd led the NFL in receiving yardage last season. If you’ve seen him play, then you’re probably aware that he has some of the best hands in the league and an outstanding leaping ability to go along with that. PFT brings up that Lloyd’s pay for this season is just under $1.4 million, which is nothing for a top WR. The real trick would be deciding if you want to keep a 30-year old wr for a few seasons. With how competitive the Titans are right now, I think it’s in the best interest of the team to give this a hard look and possibly be even better next year with Britt, Lloyd, and Washington all playing at an above average rate with what might be a returning Pro Bowler at QB. If nothing else, it’s something to think about it.
In 2010, Lloyd caught 77 balls for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns. When was the last time you saw that in TN?
