Broncos receiver Brandon Lloyd hasn’t always been the most gracious person in discussing his 2010 season. When he was selected to the Pro Bowl he took an opportunity to curse out his former teams, and even when he offered positive words for teammate Tim Tebow, he did it by taking a shot at teammate Kyle Orton.
But after Sunday’s season finale, in which Lloyd had 73 receiving yards to end up with an NFL-best 1,448 yards this season, Lloyd was humble.
“There couldn’t be a more grateful person that this could happen to,” Lloyd said. “I’m proud of what I accomplished and I’m grateful for everybody that was involved in this football season: the quarterbacks, my teammates, the front office, media, fans, my family. There are so many people in my life that gave me the confidence to be out there and accomplish what I accomplished this year because my inner circle knew I could do it.”
Lloyd, who from 2007 to 2009 bounced around the league with three different teams and recorded just 495 yards, ought to get some consideration for comeback player of the year.
