Rams won’t be tagging Brandon Lloyd

AP

Ten players have already received franchise tags around the NFL, and as many as 25 are expected by Monday’s deadline for tags to be assigned.

Rams free agent receiver Brandon Lloyd won’t be getting one.

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch confirmed Saturday that the Rams “haven’t used their [tag]” on Lloyd and “aren’t expected to do so” ahead of March 5.

While Rams COO Kevin Demoff recently told TurfShowTimes.com that the club had “initial discussions” with Lloyd’s representatives at the NFL Scouting Combine, there has been no sign of an impending contract agreement and Lloyd seems much more likely to enter free agency.

As a top four or five available receiver, Lloyd won’t struggle to generate immediate interest on the open market.

    He’s saying that they are expecting 15 more teams to franchise players which would give a total of 25. Not 25 more teams have to franchise players.

    hey goofy, first of all the Bills will have to sign free agent Stevie JOHNSON before Lloyd can play alongside him.
