The Patriots may have finally gotten the big play WR they have been looking for, as the team has come to terms with free agent wide receiver Brandon Lloyd.
After being dealt to the Rams mid-season, Lloyd led the team with 51 receptions, 683 yards and five touchdowns in just 11 games.
Lloyd had talked openly about reuniting with new Pats OC Josh McDaniels, who was his coach in Denver when he had his best season as a pro.
In 2010 he caught 77 passes for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns.
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 that 2010 campaign.
He will turn 31 before training camp, but no matter what, he’s probably going to be Tom Brady’s go-to guy when camp kicks off in July.
