The New England Patriots released WR Brandon Lloyd today. I mentioned the possibility of Lloyd’s release a while back and how it could impact the San Diego Chargers. With Mike McCoy the new head coach in town, could we see the Chargers go after one of his former players.
Mike McCoy and Brandon Lloyd worked together in Denver and Lloyd enjoyed his best season working with McCoy. Also, the Chargers have a ton of receivers that have been bitten by the injury bug and it would be good to add another receiver that can open up the field.
Danario Alexander may skip out of town with the Chargers only offering him a low tender. Then we would only have Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown as our main weapons at receiver. Even if Alexander returns, it would be nice to add more weapons on offense.
That is what we keep trying to do. Add more weapons on offense. At least Lloyd would know a few people on the offensive side of the football if he joined the squad. He knows Eddie Royal and Danny Woodhead.
Having Alexander, Floyd, Lloyd and Brown would be an exciting group for Philip to throw the ball around to. All the receivers get up and go after the football. Robert Meachem would be the 5th receiver in the group and may finally find a way to contribute again when he isn’t one of the main guys. Still not worth the money that we gave him.
A few teams are going to be interested in Lloyd and I am not sure if we have the funds to spend on a luxury. We still don’t have a complete offensive line put together and our secondary and middle linebacker spot looks a little shallow. I would love the addition, but don’t know if it is worth it.
It will be interesting to see if the Patriots enter in the Danario Alexander sweepstakes.
