The Brandon Lloyd Trade

Well I will be honest in saying that I was a little surprised when I got out of class and heard we traded or Brandon Lloyd. I had saw that we we're looking at him but didn't exactly expect us to do it. I really know too much about him except that he led the league in receiving last year. I am happy that the Rams actually made a move that could potentially help this team this year. Now all we need is to get Sam Bradford healthy. And hopefully Lloyd and him can develop a connection just like Mark Clayton and Bradford last year.

Speaking of Mark Clayton... we should be getting him back this coming week. If he and Bradford get it going again, and Lloyd can do work then it might just turn out alright. Not saying a miraculous 11-5 season, but maybe a 6-10 or something around there. This trade just might hurt our chances to get one of those receivers like Jeffery or Blackmon. And I am sure everyone would want one or the other.

I do like what Lloyd has to say about the trade, especially around 4:56 to the end.

I do think that we can at least get something going on offense. Take some pressure off of Steven Jackson maybe. But it is still his team no doubt about it and he needs to lead them. Ive seen things about Danario, Clayton, and Salas woould be a good matchup. But since we traded for Lloyd, I would guess that it would be Lloyd, Clayton, and Salas with Danario rotating in quite a bit. Hopefully McDaniels can really get something going with his former leading receiver.

 

Also, I am really happy for Danrio. He has made production, done well this year so far. On top of all that he has been HEALTHY. That was the one thing he really needed to fix and so far he has done a great job coming in week in and week out.

So lastly, good luck to Sam Bradford. Get healthy and just make the throws.
