    Should the Rams make a deal for Brandon Lloyd?

    He absolutely shined in McDaniels system last year. He is having an OK year but its because of all the problems with the Broncos. He has excellent hands and is a great deep threat. The trade deadline is coming up.

    I think the Broncos are worried about giving him a big contract next year when his contract expires. I think we could have him with a mid round pick. Say we offer a 4th, 5th, and swap 7th's. I definitely think that could reel him in. If not, even offer a 3rd. Why should we spend a 3rd on someone that can bust no questions asked. Especially with our track record of drafting anyone after the 2nd, its a no brainer.

    This is exactly what we need in this offense. If we got Brandon Lloyd, we could really make a big running for a playoff spot. Mark Clayton will be back after the Packers game too.

    Why not just sign him as a FA at the end of the year?

    Do we really need a poll for every "Should the Rams trade for __________" that some blogger says "could happen"?

    We could do that, but I mean Spags and Devaney's jobs may be on the line. Plus I'd love to see us win now, not always the "next year" factor.

    lol


    But yeah I would, if the price is right. Like someone else said, he could be available as a FA at the end of the year, but I honestly beleive he would become more expensive if we were to wait. But we need the help now.

    AHAHAH, but drafting Lloyd gives us an opportunity like you said to win now. We have to win immediately. It also gives us an option next year in the draft. We may be able to take a CB. I'd still grab a WR but DeSpags may feel different.

    Waste of a trade IMO. Devaney and Spags may push for it though with there jobs on the line

    Well see, but I don't think so.

    How is that a topic? Has anyone from the Rams or the Broncos suggested that such a trade is being considered? If so, what would the Broncos demand in compensation?

    How is this for a topic:

    Should the Rams trade for Calving Johnson?
    Should the Rams trade for Larry Fitzgerald?
    Should the Rams trade for Andre Johnson?
    Should the Rams trade for [insert name of player the Rams might like to have]?

    There's a difference between the Mods' efforts to add to the content of these boards with some weekly features and the Fantasy/Madden/BleacherReport topic you started.

    So you see this team being one Brandon Lloyd away from being a winner?

    Will he be playing CB as well?

    Re: Should the Rams make a deal for Brandon Lloyd?

    After yesterday, I think Fox is gonna have to make Tebow, the 13th disciple, the starter. Orton stunk it up real bad ... again.
    Point is, Lloyd prolly wants out REAL bad.

    Just sayin' ...
    If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.

    Re: Should the Rams make a deal for Brandon Lloyd?

    Lloyd is somewhat of a temptation but at the end of the day gotta say, no. Don't want to risk losing a pick(s) over a guy who could easily bolt as an unrestricted FA.

    Besides, we are getting Clayton back in a week or so and I'd just as soon see what transpires then.

    Also, as it is painfully obvious that this season is toast, I'm all for playing the rooks and kids now to see what we might have going forward.


    WHAT SAY YE?

    Wait, are you saying we could get Megatron for a 4th, 5th and a trade of 7th's?

    Because even if such a trade were to ever be discussed, that much for a one hit wonder like Lloyd would be like a minor version of the Walker trade.
    I believe!
