Last week, when Danario Alexander went down with an ACL injury, I didn’t think that we needed to hit the panic button by signing a new receiver onto the roster. Now, if Malcom Floyd misses the year, then we have to consider a player like Brandon Lloyd. Lloyd has never been a locker room guy and he has jumped from locker room to locker room throughout his career, but he is talented. He is a talented receiver that has produced with Mike McCoy as the offensive coordinator.

Vincent Brown and Keenan Allen are going to be good receivers and they will be able to contribute, but there is no experience. A fair share of mistakes will be made. Eddie Royal has the experience, but he is fragile. Robert Meachem? He is Robert Meachem and hasn’t shown that he can produce in a Chargers uniform.

Brandon Lloyd has to be considered now. We need another body on the roster that can make plays. Brandon Lloyd has been a playmaker before. Might have to make San Diego Lloyd’s 7th team in his career.

Can we really say that Dan DePalma will be able to make plays on offense for us? Mike Willie? Luke Tasker? Richard Goodman? It might have to come down to that. We might have to rely on some of the unproven talent.

Anyone know what Ocho Cinco is doing?
