Titans Coach Says Team Thought Long and Hard About WR Lloyd

Titans coach Mike Munchak said on his radio show on 104.5-FM that the team did look at wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, but that things didn’t work out well enough for a deal according to John Glennon of the Tennessean.

Denver shipped Lloyd to St. Louis on Monday, in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick that can change to a fifth-rounder if Lloyd catches at least 30 passes during the rest of the season.

“We looked hard at him, no doubt,” Munchak said. “We’ve looked at every opportunity. We’re always looking to upgrade and we lost Kenny Britt … We have young guys we know can step up – Damian Williams and Marc Mariani and Lavelle Hawkins.”

Munchak said there were a couple reasons the Titans didn’t make a deal with the Broncos for Lloyd.

“I think it was part business, part what they were looking for at one time as far as what they wanted,” Munchak said. “His contract is also up (after this year), meaning we’d only have him for 11 weeks and then there’s a good chance we could lose him to free agency next year.

“But we were looking at him because he is a talent and did have a great year last year. We just played against him a couple of weeks ago, so we know how good he can be. But unfortunately it didn’t get worked out.”
