    Broncos trade Lloyd to Rams

    Denver Broncos trade receiver Brandon Lloyd to St. Louis Rams - ESPN


    Good for the Rams. They need the help.

    Not sure what the Broncos are doing, though. They're starting a young QB. He needs all the help he can get.

    I know Lloyd was a fan of Orton, so I guess he could have asked to be traded. Still, it seems odd that they'd let him go, especially for as little as they got.

    Re: Broncos trade Lloyd to Rams

    he is a free agent in 7 weeks. He wasn't going to be a good enough one to get compensatory picks. Might as well ship him out for something rather than nothing.

    I get that, but what does it say to the rest of the team? They're a week removed from decent showing from Tebow, and a competitive game against the Chargers, and the coaching staff is packing it in? I don't think Tebow is going to be a successful quarterback in the long term, but Broncos management sure aren't doing much to help him succeed.

    agree here.

    he will be much better with Josh McDaniels and Sam Bradford then John Fox and Kyle Orton/Tim Tebow. McDaniels is the one that saved his career.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Actually, I think Lloyd will be better off with Sam Bradford than with Timmy.

    I'm not sure Broncos management is all that concerned about Tebow succeeding personally, it doesn't seem like they are very high on Tebow, he was a pet project of the previous administration and I think the current one feels stuck with him to be honest.

    I think this is right on the money. Fox will run Tebow out there the rest of the year and then tell management that it won't work so he can draft/sign his own guy.

    Re: Broncos trade Lloyd to Rams

    I don't think Lloyd added that much with TT starting. He is a good deep ball receiver but TT can't throw that. With Denvers O line I am not sure any QB can truly succeed. TT will probably be more successful because he can move better than Orton. All in all no matter who starts or who the recivers are I don't think it matters until they fix the line.

    Re: Broncos trade Lloyd to Rams

    As a Lloyd fantasy owner I'm not sure how I feel about this. He wasn't doing much with the broncos, but he's going to a terrible team. At least he'll be in an offense that he is familiar with.

    And since they're always playing from behind, they'll have to throw it alot.

    Re: Broncos trade Lloyd to Rams

    Both Eddie Royal and Brandon Lloyd requested trades so it's not like they randomly did this, he's in the last year of a contract and is going to want a big payday in free agency that the broncos wouldn't be able to give him. Makes perfect sense to get something in return for him since this year's team isn't going anywhere and Demaryius Thomas is healthy now to step in


    ALL IN

    Re: Broncos trade Lloyd to Rams

    So will Lloyd play this week then? or will he need more time to learn the playbook and hot route calls?

    What they are doing is setting up Tebow to fail and throwing in the towel. 1-15 is a great possibility. Just need the colts to win a few games. Suck for Luck.
