Josh McDaniels and Brandon Lloyd may come as a one-two punch these days.
After McDaniels was canned in Denver, he became the St. Louis Rams’ offensive coordinator. Brandon Lloyd followed him there mid-way through the 2011 season.
Now that McDaniels is back with the New England Patriots, Lloyd would like to stick with McDaniels citing,
“I’m tied to McDaniels. He uses me differently than other offensive coordinators used me in my entire career. . . . I want to be used in ways where I feel comfortable and I can be successful and Josh knows how to do that.” – Brandon Lloyd (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
The Patriots need a deep threat at receiver and it appears that Lloyd would fit that need. One foreseeable problem, however, is Lloyd’s agent Tom Condon hasn’t worked a deal with the Patriots since 2006 when he was battling the team over Ben Watson’s contract.
“We pretend there are 31 franchises in the NFL now and they pretend we don’t exist,” Condon once said.
Condon’t company, CAA, said that the past won’t detract a future deal.
If Lloyd ends up a Patriot, their offense will be even more potent.
