Re: Brandon Lloyd

Burleson requires only a 3rd rounder and big contract? That would be tempting he had a down year last year but that could have been attributable to a lot of different factors beyond his control (No true no. 1, Daunte sucking butt, switching coordinators, etc.).

Are you sure NB was only tendered at the 3rd level? I could have sworn that I read he got a first round tender.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

Can you imagine the nightmare they would cause with both Moss, Patten and Lloyd as the recievers. Portis as the back in a Saunders system. thats a spicy meatball!

I would have liked ike, but at 5mill per, that's really expensive.
I have to agree, Kevin Curtis over Lloyd. I think we'd get him at a better price and I like his upside better.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

If Lloyd had his best year with 47 receptions, 789 yds and 5 TD's with weak calibre of talent in San Francisco, he would double that in Washington. If Brunell starts, Llyod would be the target on third down and the redzone. I agree, he has been inconsistent at times, but what great WR hasn't?

Re: Brandon Lloyd

Curtis > Lloyd any day of the week. The Rams would be crazy to let him get away though. Good lord, if we had Santana and Curtis, that's a crazy fast receiving corps.

his production isn't terrible, but his cost of aquisition is. just cause he did well with crap talent around doesn't gaurantee he'll do better here though.

fujita and holdman went from bad teams to good ones and ended up sucking hard and becoming part time players. Though i'd have to agree that 700+ yards from alex smith is a miracle in and of itself.

Here's the report from the Minneapolis Star Tribune 3/2:

"The Vikings placed the lowest possible qualifying offer on restricted free agent Nate Burleson on Thursday, giving the receiver a tender that is worth $712,000 and would result in the team getting a draft pick equal to the round in which Burleson was selected (third) if he goes elsewhere."

Everyone (including Nate and his agent) expected the Vikings to tender a bigger qualifying offer. I see the offer as a sign of weakness. They may have cap dollars to burn, but that doesn't mean they want to spend it. Throw some money at him and see if the Vikings match the offer. Remember, Koren Robinson is also an unrestricted free agent for them and if the Vikings want to keep him, they'll have to pony up some serious change. They also have Troy Williamson under contract and I think Marcus Robinson is still around. They might consider Nate to be an expendable if they can't sign him to a lowball deal.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

John Clayton's take on targeting restricted free agents this year, including Brandon Lloyd, Kevin Curtis and Nate Burleson:

8. Restricted area: The restricted market should be dead. With a number of teams entering free agency with more than $10 million of cap room, what team is going to be crazy enough to waste seven days to sign a restricted free agent if it thinks the other team is going to match? Teams normally stay away from the dozen or so restricted free agents with first-round tenders. This year, it's probably a waste of time to give a tender to a restricted free agent for low draft choice compensation. The teams that have the seven days to match will just thank the other teams for tendering a long-term deal and eat up some of their own cap room. Still, a few names such as kicker Josh Brown of the Seahawks, Nate Burleson of the Vikings and Ricky Manning Jr. of the Panthers might draw interest.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

This is been talked about on the radio out here on the left coast. But many didn't think if could be done with washington not having a 1st round pick. There talk a trade could get done with picks and maybe a player. Also another team may get into this as in a three way trade. I was wondering if the Jets,49ers and Redskins could be cooking something up? These kind of trades happen in a blue moon in the NFL. I just don't wanted us to give away the farm and trade high 07 picks!

he's not worth what would have to be given up to get him. if he were a UFA i wouldn't care as much, but when you have to trade players and draft picks (which could easily get us 1-2 starters) for one player who is in no way a sure-shot... well, that's a really bad business decision. Especially when UFAs and less intensive RFAs with equal talent exist.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

From the Sporting News
2006 scouting report
Strengths: Has good quickness and acceleration. Uses his long arms and great leaping ability to win jump balls and make spectacular catches. Has soft hands and can catch balls away from his body. Has good technique getting off press coverage and is adept at finding holes in zone coverage.

Weaknesses: Lacks the strength to be a physical blocker and gets knocked around by physical defensive backs. Doesn’t get quality separation on deep routes and will occasionally drop easy catches.

Bottom line: Lloyd must improve his strength and show a more competitive attitude to take his play to the next level, but he should have a good career if he works hard.
