Pretty easy to be misunderstood on Twitter.

Knowing Mr. Graziano, as limited as I do, I'm certain that was not a back-pedal

Sounds like they want to add the #1 pick.

reports are that the Broncos are trying to get either a 3rd, 4th or 5th pick for this bum.

re: Update: Lloyd Reportedly Traded to Rams

Here's how I view our receiving..

We currently have Santana who needs to be on the field every game, without question.
Gaffney is currently playing like a #2 making clutch receptions and most importantly, he's got history with Rex.

Bringing in Lloyd as a #1 and pushing Moss and Gaffney back would clearly help, but let's not forget we have this guy named Anthony Armstrong who is one year removed from a 900 year season (give or take) that is recovering from injury and got off to a slow start with Rex.. I fully expect AA to mesh in as the third threat soon.

Is it worth the 3rd or 4th for Lloyd? Because the truth is our defense is going to allow this team to win and adding another 1000 yard receiver, isn't going to do much when we currently have three legitimate options who are already being held back due to a bad quarterback (Rex).

And I mean, clearly the name Brandon Lloyd isn't the favorite for the Washington Redskins for obvious reasons.

Hopeless in the nuances English language like fair chunk of people, you failed to comprehend that being a "fit" for anything does not necessarily mean you are going to be pursued and obtained for use. There is no backpedaling, only your failure to comprehend the nuance. I'm sure a BMW or Mercedes would "fit" alot of people, but they sure as hell ain't gonna buy one barring lottery wins or the like.

Lloyd is a #1. However, New York has Cruz and Nicks, Philly has Maclin and Jackson, and Dallas has Austin and Bryant. There is no way Lloyd is going to crack those pairings. We have Moss and Gaffney. Gaff is a good possession receiver but can be bumped down. Moss is not the elite deep threat anymore. Lloyd would be the #1 here, so indeed, he is a fit here.

Denver Broncos exploring trade offers for Brandon Lloyd, according to report - ESPN
He is their leading WR and I think on a better team he might have better numbers. Not sure what he is like as a person that may have something to do with the trade but as far a talent I don't think he is one hit wonder.

Doesn't the concept of "fit" take into account, I don't know, your history with the organization? How can you "fit" with an organization that got rid of you after being an abject failure and embarassment for several years? How many TD passes did he catch as a Redskin again?

As a Redskin Lloyd dominated the bench. He took the gatorade cooler to the house all the time.

re: Update: Lloyd Reportedly Traded to Rams

There is no ****ing way the fan base would take to trading picks for this guy again. No way, no ****ing how. Imagine the back lash if you traded for the same guy twice and both times he flopped. Not just no, but..... HEEELLLL MOTHER ****ING NO.


It's not a good fit, and never will be. Some other team needs to make that gamble, we still have scars from being burnt with him before.

When did Lloyd play for Shanahan? MS was fired by Denver on December 30, 2008; Lloyd was signed June 15, 2009. Wikipedia don't fail me now...

He didnt, I said he be good, just to use for one year under Shanny, and he probably not as bad of a guy as you guys think........ He could come in and play right next to Moss........ which would give us legit WR......
