Report: WR Brandon Lloyd Signs with New England Patriots


According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New England Patriots have signed wide receiver Brandon Lloyd.

This move is now official, and it’s certainly a move that makes sense. I would have been quite surprised if the Patriots didn’t land Lloyd, who has publicly stated his desire to play both for the Patriots but more importantly for offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

McDaniels has been Lloyd’s coach for the last couple of years with the Broncos and Rams, and he has seen great success including a Pro Bowl appearance after the 2010 season.
