I thought it was funny dude. Add TE Ethan Horton to the Raiders/Niners list.

Re: Redskins Release Brandon Lloyd

I had so much high expectations of BL when we traded for him, I admit he was a total let down for me. I am glad we got rid of him and get on with finding a receiver that can help our ball team.

washingtonpost.com

Some one was asking earlier if Lloyd was a June 1st cut, here's what this article said:
"...was designated a June 1 cut for salary cap purposes, executive vice president Vinny Cerrato said, which means his salary cap figure of $4.2 million will drop to $1.8 million on June 1. (Lloyd will count $5.5 million in dead cap space in 2009.)"

The question we have now is does he still get any other moneys that will count toward this years cap?

23 of those catches must have been during pre-season, right?

Re: Redskins Release Brandon Lloyd

What a total and complete waste he was. I don't think any of us could have imagined him being the problem child he ended up being. Yeah we knew he was coming with a little baggage, but holy shit! He made about $11 million while he was here, and with a whopping 25 catches in 2 seasons, he earned about $440,000 per catch. That's just disgusting.

Actually he only had 2 catches for 14 yards in 2007 - so your memory is dead on GMANC!

Also to have zero touchdowns in today's pass happy NFL - I mean you have to say that this is in part due to Llyod's play and simply blaming everyone else under the sun besides Llyod is ignorance.

The guy is a bum. Everyone says he has all the athletic talent in the world to be dominant but results speak for themselves. Personally I think any team signing him even for the vet minimum is foolish because with all the injuries in today's NFL depth is so important and this guy is not even 2nd string material and would take up a valuable roster spot.

It sucks that we gave up picks and $12 million to this guy but I am very happy that the Redskins have wiped the slate clean and cut their losses with Llyod. Now we can sign someone who actually wants to lace them up every weekend and actually produce for the burgundy and gold.

Llyod has been fully exposed and chances are no team is going to take a chance on this guy. Out of the NFL and good riddence!

Re: Redskins Release Brandon Lloyd

I'm shocked we did it so early. I really thought they would wait until next year. I don't blame the Skins for doing it, he was dead weight...even worse, an anchor around the Skins necks.
We obviously don't need him around. We just took close to a 2.9 mil cap hit by doing this. Just unsure why now when it would have cost us $0 to drop him after this season.

Re: Redskins Release Brandon Lloyd

WoW. and I was beginning to have fun with my lame rapping. LOL <; )

I can't belive I got canned by the Redskins,
banned to play the pigskin,
to much stress,
I found it hard with the all the tension,
now I have to worry 'bout my pension,
I can't belive I got canned by the Redskins,

now I'm on a brand new mission,
and I don't need to ask permission,
to try and seek a job with the Dolphins,
hopin to play with out the problems,

Workin real hard to lose the goblins,
sittin on the sidelines modelin,
waitin for the chance to cash it all in,
singin my rap cuz it's what I'm talkin,

now I find myself simply walkin,
hopin I get a chance as a Dolphin,
droppin the balls like I know I can,
rappin so hard I'll have a lot of fans,

I can't belive I got fired by the Redskins..................

Jsarno - I think he was a really bad locker room distraction and the team just needed to cut ties with him ASAP. From the reports from JLC Llyod is being designated a post June 1 cut, so the Skins are getting the benefits of cutting him now and the cap savings too without having to give the guy the $1.8 million bonus for 2008.

What makes me mad about this is when you look at his pay per catch rate - with a $10,000,000 signing bonus and 25 catches in 2 years he got $400,000 a catch - not a bad gig if you could land it. At least he could have gotten 1 TD as one of his receptions, but that was too much to ask.

Fair enough...but interjecting a little levity along the way doesn’t hurt and sometimes makes a point and educates others who might not remember being in the same position (sans salary cap) almost 25 years ago.

Keep in mind sarcasm goes a long way on this board. I guess every board. Some times people are serious and sometimes they are very sarcastic in hopes of being funny. In any case don't break the board rules and get thick skin.

When you mention 25yrs ago I hope you are mentioning when the salary cap started. I'm supprised no one has opened a new forum in reference to a possible 2010 cap free yr? what's wrong with you people?

I won't be surprised if he's completely out of football before long.
