Brandon Lloyd isn’t the only Broncos receiver available via trade. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that receiver Eddie Royal can be had, too. (We heard talk of that last night, but we didn’t post it so Schefty gets full credit. If anyone cares. And no one really does.)
Schefter explains that both players have asked to be traded. Since both players are in the final year of their respective contracts, it makes sense to try to make a move.
Royal reportedly is generating as much interest as Lloyd. We reported last night that the Rams could be making a play for Lloyd. Chris Mortensen of ESPN confirms that the Rams are in play. Mort also says the Pats are interested, which is hardly good news for Chad Ochocino.
Royal has only four catches in two games this year. A second-round pick in 2008, Royal is making $600,000 this year.
The trade deadline is Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET. The Broncos are off this weekend.
