I believe he was talking about Moss, not Taylor

Re: Brandon Lloyd reports for workouts

I'm with Daseal on this one. Early workouts are just too important to miss when you're new to the team. And as far as I'm concerned, if you have a contract, you are part of the team......regardless of how good or bad that contract is and regardless of whether or not you are going to be working out a better deal soon. I know you're not contractually obligated to come to voluntary workouts, but it's still the right thing to do and I think we (as fans) were justified in being upset last year that Moss missed workouts during contract renegotiations. I see no reason to apologize for that.

Did Moss prove that perhaps not everyone needs voluntary workouts to get up to speed with the rest of the team? Yes, and I'm glad he did. Does that change my mind about the importance of coming to the workouts and that it's the right thing to do? Not at all.

Obviously, I'm thrilled that Lloyd showed up. Definitely winning points with me.

I think that him showing up when he did not have to is a great show of his dedication to this team and to success.

That certainly makes more sense, my mistake.

I think it has a lot to do with Randle El's presence. I think he wants the no. 2 job and is willing to work for it.

Re: Brandon Lloyd reports for workouts

It's good to see Lloyd here early to begin workouts with his new team despite his contract situation. It demonstrates he want's to get off on the right foot and make a serious contribution. I'm convinced our success last was was due to the 100% participation in the off-season workout program. It was also good to see Taylor here as well.

Re: Brandon Lloyd reports for workouts

he has a character flag hanging over him... doing things like this really helps some of us in thinking that maybe he left his problems behind.

980 am in DC reporting that Brandon Lloyd and the Skins have reached a long term deal. One more problem they WON'T have!

Nice...what does everyone think the odds are that it is a 30 million dollar deal?
