    Brandon Lloyd might look good in purple & gold

    Broncos put Brandon Lloyd on the trading block | ProFootballTalk

    Rumor has it they're considering something between a third and fifth round draft pick. I wouldn't give a third, but a pair of 5s or maybe a 4th could be a steal. He's shown he can get open deep and catch the jump ball, and he seems to be a team first type of guy too. Basically, would fill one of our biggest needs as a solid deep threat for a mid-round draft pick that would be a much bigger gamble if spent on any rookie.

    It still leaves the OL as our biggest need, but eliminates at least one...? I guess the big question would be, "how much money does he think he earned by leading the league in receiving last year?!??"

    I don't know. At this point, any help is good help, but is he a one-year wonder?

    He has the skills, but until last year he's done nothing as a pro. I'd gladly give up a 5 for him, good risk/reward, but I have a feeling it'll cost more than that.

    No thanks.
    He's older, and has been consistent only 1 year. Wrs take time to gel with QBs. It makes no sense to do this at this time.

    Tom Pelissero keeps saying that we won't play "rent-a-player" with a 30 year old guy while we're rebuilding, but I disagree with him. I think that having a proven WR like that would definitely help Ponder when he inevitably goes in. I'd say throw in Berrian with a 5th but they would probably ask for a 1st if we made them take Berrian. So just trade AP for him.

    Spoken like a man who understands the business.

    AP for Lloyd, straight up. They get a RB they need, we get a WR we need. We have Gerhart after all, we're set for another 6 years.

    Can't afford him. I'd rather have a young guy. We need some youth and need to get from retreads.
    I bet you could use a cool one huh Clark...Now you're talkin Eddie...

    not sure if that was sarcasm, but it did take time.

    Remember the first 3 games? receivers running their routes differently then Favre expected, mis-timed throws, they went heavy on the run game, and things only really picked up after Lewis caught that miracle game-winner vs. the 9ers.

    B Lloyd catches pretty much everything. We need a guy like that if we have Chunky Soup as a qb. This would also make it easier for Bernard Berrian to stay off the field.

    By the way, that whole "it takes time to gel with a qb" talk is so overplayed. Sure building chemistry helps but does it honestly matter with the guy we have chucking soup cans all over the field?

    I agree, but also disagree.

    I see WR as a position you can get away with having vets at. yeah, it's better to have home-grown talent that you can groom to be a playmaker for 10 years, but that just doesn't always happen. Right now we have Harvin, and that's it. Our second best WR is a "retread" in jenkins. I've got hopes for Aromashodu, but for now, we need SOMETHING. A good vet might be just what McNaabb needs. He seems to do alright with Jenkins. nothing huge, but when he needs a throw, Jenkins is there. Lloyd could be another one of those guys. Very least, he's a rotation for Jenkins, as they both play a similar role. Bigger possession guys, leave Mush and Berrian on the other side to stretch the field with Harvin in the slot and Shank/ol' rednose (Oh god I'm turning into Marty ) at end. It's a rotation that shows promise.
