Patriots add WR Brandon Lloyd-- Sat Mar 17 8:40 pm --
Reunited with Josh McDaniels
Brandon Lloyd finally has his wish: tonight he and the Patriots finalized the terms of a contract that will bring the receiver to New England, a league source confirmed. The 30-year old Lloyd made no secret of the fact that he wanted to play for the Patriots, where he would be reunited with Josh McDaniels. Over the last couple of years, Lloyd has had success playing for McDaniels, first in Denver and then with the Rams. (Boston Globe)
FF Today's Take:The deal is reportedly for three years and $12 million. Lloyd's transition into the Patriots offense should be a smooth one as he's very familiar with Josh McDaniels and his offensive system. Lloyd's signing could also mean Chad Ochocinco and/or Deion Branch are on their way out of New England.
