    Some facts about Lloyd from SI

    Lloyd had a breakout season in 2010, his eighth in the NFL. He had 18 catches of 25 yards or more and posted the third-highest receiving average (18.8 yards) since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 after a mostly nondescript career in San Francisco, Washington, Chicago and Denver, where he played in two games in 2009.

    Even at 30, Lloyd is one of the most athletic players in the NFL and is widely considered the receiver with the best hands in football.

    Last year Tebow started 3 games, during that stretch, Lloyd caught 14 passes from Tebow for 263 yards and two touchdowns.(amazingly did quite well with Tebow runnin the offense.

    Just thought id share. Still not sold on him till he can be a consistent contributer for us. But i really hope he works out, would take a lot of pressure off trying to get a FA wr next year.

    I think he will do well. I dont think the issue is that he did mediocre for his first 7 years in the league, that doesnt pose a problem to me. What is important is that he put up a huge season in the Mcdaniels offense, which is what he will be playing in for us. Mcdaniels knows how to use him and how to put him in a position to succeed, I think this is why the trade will bode well for us.

    I heard Pat Kirwan's take on Brandon Lloyd while driving home from work tonight:

    Postives: Great athlete with great hands. He will get open consistently which will take alot of pressure off of Sam Bradford.

    Negative: 30 years old

    Its a win-win situation for us because:

    1) We get a great WR....we can re-sign him
    2) If we dont re-sign him, we get a compensatory pick (3rd round)
