The 49ers continue to look for receiving help, and they’re looking at every possible avenue.
Lloyd, 32, didn’t play last year, despite a solid 2012 season with the Patriots. He caught 74 passes for 911 yards that year, but didn’t latch on last season.
Such a move would bring him full-circle, as he began his career as a fourth-round pick of the 49ers in 2003. He was then traded to the Redskins, and had stints with the Bears, Broncos and Rams before going to New England.
There’s an obvious reason Lloyd has played on so many teams, but the 49ers could provide safe harbor, and a place for a guy who has recently contributed.
