WR Brandon Lloyd wasn’t able to stretch the field like the New England Patriots had expected him to do this season. He is due a $3 million option bonus on top of a $1.9 million base salary. He is a likely candidate to hit the unemployment line soon.
Would he be interested in reuniting with San Diego Head Coach Mike McCoy. Lloyd enjoyed a career season in 2010 under the guidance of McCoy as the offensive coordinator in Denver. In that season, he had 1448 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns with Kyle Orton as his quarterback. Kyle Orton!
Lloyd will be entering his 11th season as a pro and should be available at a good price. The Chargers have some decent receivers on the roster, but we could use another veteran to compete for playing time.
Danario Alexander meshed well with Philip Rivers last season and should be a starter going into the season. Malcom Floyd has been consistent as a starter also and has the best chemistry with Philip. Vincent Brown was an up-and-coming talent, but missed all of last season with an injury. How will he look in his return? Robert Meachem was supposed to be the deep threat on the roster, but failed to make any impact plays.
Lloyd could add to the mix at the position. He could give competition for a starting spot and could push Eddie Royal or Robert Meachem out the door.
