Brandon Lloyd reports for workouts

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...032700712.html

Lloyd had not been expected to attend the workouts yesterday because, despite being traded March 11 from San Francisco for a third-round draft choice this season and a fourth round choice next year, he does not have the new contract that was part of the trade negotiations that brought him to the Redskins.
He said one of the reasons he attended was his confidence that his representatives and the Redskins will have a deal completed by next week. Under his current deal, which will pay him $1.6 million, Lloyd will be eligible for free agency after the 2006 season.

I hope this is a sign of things to come with Llyod. Granted, its just workouts, but I still like the fact that he's starting to bond with his new teammates. To me, this shows good character on his part to really trust the organization even though he just joined.

It shows a good faith effort on his part by showing up without a new deal in hand. He's off to a good start.

Re: Brandon Lloyd reports for workouts

I was hugely impressed by an interview I heard with Lloyd on Sirrius. This is even better. How many players in this day and age show up till their contract is finished. I love it!

I agree, remember last year how many people were mad at Moss because he was not at Redskins Park working out? Now that I think about it, some of us need to say they are sorry to Mr. Moss after that record breaking year that he had for us last season...

No one owes Moss an apology. Just because you had a great season doesn't make up for missing workouts! Players, especially first year players, only get working quicker because of workouts!

I thought I had heard that too at some point, that is my I am so impressed and excited. I think Gibbs must have the biggest smile on his face right now.

If we should say how sorry we are to Moss what should ST have to say to the fans.

ST doesn't have anything to apologize for just yet. Yeah he's been in some trouble but it hasn't hurt him on the field. The spitting incident is the only thing that has hurt him on the field.

I am as happy as the rest of you that Lloyd showed up for vol. workouts, but all of this talk about him not having a deal, kind of miffs me. He will make 1.6 million this coming year! Is that not a deal?! I know all of these guys want longterm deals, but I bet half the league is operating under 1 year deals. Lloyd is obligated to honor his remaining contract until a new one gets in place. I would show up for workouts if I was going to make 1.6 mill!

Re: Brandon Lloyd reports for workouts

The thing with Lloyd is the Redskins brought him here with the clear intention of signing him to a long-term deal. Both sides are well aware that he's here under those circumstances. Yes he has a deal in place already from the 49ers, but you don't trade for a RFA and let him play under his current deal.

Let me guess, he could have had a better season if he was at Redskins Park all last season too I suppose...

Either way, the guy caught alot of smack from fans on here and he came in and put up stats that I do not believe we really thought that he could. Should've he ben at Redskins Park for the workouts last year, yeah. But he wasnt and he still put up record breaking #'s...

I have to disagree, Moss's great season more than made up for missing a few workouts early in the offseason. He was there for all of training camp and he more than showed up all season long with a Pro Bowl, team record breaking season.

If we can't forgive him for missing a few early offseason workouts after that performance... I really have to wonder.

If he had been here maybe he wouldn't have gotten into this legal trouble, so he wouldn't have that weighing mind.
