As the Denver Broncos give Tim Tebow his audition, they are systematically dismantling the rest of the team, particularly the parts built by former head coach Josh McDaniels. Today, ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed that Denver is also willing to trade wide receiver and return man Eddie Royal in addition to wide receiver Brandon Lloyd

Royal was there before Josh McDaniels arrived. Royal was part of that forgettable 2008 class of wide receivers, which including Donnie Avery. Like Avery, Royal was a second round pick, known more for his speed than anything else. 

Last year, Royal caught 59 passes for a total 627 yards and three touchdowns. This year he has four receptions for 51 yards. 

He might have more value as a kick and punt return man, even though his results in that department were never much to brag about. He's been replaced by Quan Cosby as Denver's return man this year. For the Rams, Lloyd would bring the biggest potential impact.
