49ers showing “strongest interest” in Brandon Lloyd


The trading deadline is Tuesday, but the Broncos would ideally like to trade wide receiver Brandon Lloyd before Monday is over.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the 49ers were showing the “strongest interest” in Lloyd, but the Rams and Patriots were also involved in discussions.

Of course, a report from the same paper said on Sunday that the Broncos had not received anything higher than a seventh-round pick for the 2010 Pro Bowler.  So the “strongest interest” may not be particularly strong.

The Broncos would like to move Lloyd soon because they return to practice Monday and Lloyd will be at the facility.  They want a mid-round pick.

With Josh Morgan out for the year and Braylon Edwards hurt, the 49ers’ interest makes some sense. The Rams are somewhat logical despite their 0-5 record because of Josh McDaniels’ history with Lloyd.

The Patriots making a move for Lloyd would be a surprise. If that happened, it’s hard to see Chad Ochocinco having a role on the team. He barely has a role now.

Broncos receiver Eddie Royal has also reportedly requested a trade, but Denver doesn’t sound interested in moving him.

    Josh Mcdaniels would overpay at 0-5 for Brandon Lloyd

    Lloyd must absolutely hate Tebow to get shipped out as soon as he takes over at QB.

    I hope my Dolphins learned about making deals for a WR from Broncos…Don’t do it!!

    Don’t you want a proven receiver on your team once you solve your quarterback situation? Or is this a way to say “Told you Tebow can’t play”?

    5th rounder at most. ..I’d do it though. Go Niners!

    If this helps you beat the Giants and Redskins I’m all for it.

    Brandon should think about winning and take a 1 yr. deal now…Why would an 0-5 team or any Team take on more money or lose a draft pick?
    1 player will not help the Rams significantly.
    KC runs a similar system, but I can’t imagine Pioli bringing him in now? Odds are more likey the 49’s, Pats will be in a good position to give the Bronco’s a draft pick…Bronco’s and Rams are in the same condition. Losing and needing multiple players….

    He would be one dangerous wide out with Brady throwing him the pill

    The Ocho Experiment is over in New England. There are reports that after 85 again wasn’t running the route he was supposed to on the one pass Brady threw him, Brady tee’d off on him on the way back.

    If he’s seeing one throw from Brady and getting chewed out for not running that one route right, I’d say Tom is done with him after 6 weeks. If Brady is done with him, Beichick no doubt is as well.

    You heard it here first; Look for Ocho to be released or traded for a tray of cold cuts, and Brandon Lloyd traded for some badly needed draft picks.

    We’ve got ’em,the Donks need ’em.

    Give Brady Llyoyd, Branch, Welker, Gronk, and Hernandez, and you’ve got an even more potent little offense. With Ridley and BJGE making a pretty good running tandem and a defense that is finally showing us something, and this could turn into a pretty good season for the Pat’s.

    Some of you are so dumb. Lloyd being traded has nothing to do with who the qb is. It has to do with Denver wanting something more than a compensatory pick if he signs with a team during the offseason, and Eddie royal who is going to trade for you?

    What happened to the Titans being in the mix??

  12. nflofficeadmin says: Oct 17, 2011 10:26 AM

    Willing to suck it for Luck.

  13. 1captain1 says: Oct 17, 2011 10:29 AM

    This would be a great move by the Iceman!

    Then he could trade him back to the Captain!

    AFL 12 here we come!

    Well, they had better hurry up…

  15. ready4doomboom says: Oct 17, 2011 11:02 AM

    Both Lloyd and Royal requested trades before the benching of Orton. Nothing with to due with Orton or Tebow. But lets keep talking about Tebow even though he isn’t the headline.

    They both know with Fox they’re going to be a run first team and they both are FA’s next season. They have a 1st round pick coming back from injury and Decker. They know a Slot and a Verticle threat aren’t ideal for the system.

    Seeing as Harbaugh could very well be on his way to becoming the new Josh McDaniels, this would be a good match.

  17. sepl12 says: Oct 17, 2011 11:33 AM

    I’m going to end this pats talk right now. as cool as the wr core would look with him in it, the pats have 2 firsts, seconds and thirds, and 1 fourth rd pick. so unless Denver is willing to trade for a 6th rd 2013 pick he can’t go to the pats

  18. mmmpieyummy says: Oct 17, 2011 11:37 AM

    Pretty funny how all the receivers in Donkeyville want out now that Timmy Teblow is the QB…don’t kid yourself jaypace.

  19. marcsasharc says: Oct 17, 2011 11:46 AM

    Lloyd would be a great addition to the 9ers WR corps.

    Crabtree, Edwards, Lloyd, Davis, Walker, Williams.

    In Harbaugh I trust, but I don’t like this one…
