He got the benefit of a lot of targets, and let me tell you Lloyd was screwing up routes and dropping balls at a lot of opportune times. He had a great chance to really excel and he really didn't. He was the biggest weakness on the Patriots offense and that's why he is being cut.

I'm not saying that he wouldn't be possibly be a good #2 to AJ, but it's not any problem solved type of thing at all. It would be a bandaid on the problem at best and only for a year or two maybe. Lloyd has always had motivational struggles in his career and I'm not so sure on how hard he'll work here like he did in NE. He seemed to play well in Mcdaniels system, but everywhere else he played he never really caught on.


His best season was in 2010 with Denver with Orton and Tebow at QB. 77 receptions, 1448 receiving yards, 18.8 yards per reception, and 11 TD's.
