NFL Trade Rumors: St. Louis Rams Serious About Brandon Lloyd?

Denver Broncos wide receiver has been the subject of trade rumors this week. The Denver Post confirmed earlier in the week that the receiver was indeed on the block, the asking price being a third- to fifth-round pick. Today, Pro Football Talk reports that the St. Louis Rams could be serious about pursuing Lloyd. 

Brandon Lloyd was mostly forgettable until joining Josh McDaniels in Denver during McDaniels' short-lived and disastrous tenure as head coach. Lloyd broke out last year for more than 1,400 yards, and he was on pace for more than a 1,000 yards this season until the quarterback situations changed there. 

It makes sense for the Rams to add Lloyd for a mid-round draft pick. The Rams have failed to address the wide receiver position. They tried by signing free agent Mike Sims-Walker, but he's been a bust through four games. More importantly, the team has struggled with Josh McDaniels' offense and is leaning heavily on rookies to make things work. 

I hate to be negative, but at 0-4, the Rams' season is not going to extend into the playoffs. It's pretty unlikely at any rate. PFT reminds readers that Lloyd might help the Rams win enough games this season to save Billy Devaney and Steve Spagnuolo's jobs into 2012.
