Receiver due $3 million option bonus
The New England Patriots have released wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, the team announced Saturday. Lloyd was due a $3 million roster bonus this weekend. The Patriots were open to keeping Lloyd with a reduced salary. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take:The Patriots will save $4.9 million against the cap, but will be hit with $2 million in dead money. There is a chance Lloyd will be brought back at a reduced cost but as of now the Patriots have parted ways with their top two wideouts from last season.
