St. Louis Rams Free Agents 2012: Re-Signing Brandon Lloyd Might Have Gotten Easier

Free agent wide receiver Brandon Lloyd's decision to hire Tom Condon as his agent may have complicated a reunion with Josh McDaniels in New England.

Brandon Lloyd's future is a little cloudy. The St. Louis Rams could sure stand to re-sign the free agent wide receiver. Lloyd's public comments about continuing to play for Josh McDaniels made it seem like a long shot for the Rams to keep him. However, a change in agents may have short circuited Lloyd's chances to reunite with McDaniels in New England.

Lloyd recently hired St. Louis-based super agent Tom Condon of CAA to represent him. The Patriots, according to the Boston Herald, do not deal much with Condon. In fact, the report says that the team has not signed a player represented exclusively by Condon since things got ugly over first-round pick Ben Watson in 2004.

The Herald report cites this 2009 quote from Condon:

We pretend there are 31 franchises in the NFL now and (the Patriots) pretend we don't exist, even though we represent 140 of the best players in the NFL. That's fine.

Of course, things can and often do change. McDaniels could convince he Patriots coworkers to make an exception in Lloyd's case.

The Rams, on the other hand, have dealt with Condon plenty. He represents Sam Bradford.

Lloyd left open the possibility that he would be interested in returning to the Rams under new head coach Jeff Fisher. Keeping Lloyd, 30, on the roster would bolster the receivers, giving Bradford a reliable down-field target. The Rams' interest in Lloyd could also depend on whether or not they pursue other free agent receivers. The Rams have been mentioned as a potential suitor for Vincent Jackson.
