Never given a chance. He was given enough chances to find out he stinks. You know Niners fans were secretly laughing their asses off when they found out we took him cause they knew he was gonna do squat.

In fact, I think they were pretty glad to get rid of him.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

I was siked when we got him. His hands and vertical leap are among the best in the NFL. He's just completely inept at separating defenders, which pretty much makes him worthless. 0% chance he stays.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

I'd trade Lloyd for a lame horse, then I'd shoot the horse.

The previous post regarding Al Saunders pitching to get Lloyd may be another factor in the Danny's urgency to replace Saunders with Zorn.
Soupmeister - I think teams are allowed 2 roster exceptions regarding this issue:
  1. Prior to the start of the league year, teams may designate up to two (2) veteran players that they will cut after June 1 to spread out the signing bonus escalation (See 1.9b). In so designating them, the team allows these players to become free agents at the start of the free agency period -- although their cap liability remains with the original team just as it would have if the player had stayed on the roster until after June 1.
This was from the link (see section 1.14 part 6) that Hijinx just posted....

They let him go for a reason, and we picked him up hoping he would turn his career around. We were wrong. I had him tabbed as a potentially VERY good WR, boy that egg STILL hasn't washed off my face! I'm not making that mistake again, get rid of him and let Mix have his job. It's not like Mix can do any worse. All Mix needs is 4 catches to DOUBLE Lloyd's production from 07!

And don't forget if one of those 4 catches is a touchdown that will be more TD's than Llyod caught in his tenure as a Skin!

Upward...to like 48 receptions and 740 yards. That was his career year.

LaVar, Patrick - I'd like to introduce you to the latest loser to enter the Pantheon "When we let it go?"

That's astounding that we paid a skill position guy a $10M signing bonus and he scored ZERO TD's in two seasons.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

I get a feeling that Lloyd will get another shot especially with Zorn at the helm and a new type of offense will be put into place which may favor Lloyd.
