NFL Free Agents 2012: Rams Interested In Bringing Back Brandon Lloyd

The St. Louis Rams could solve part of their problems at wide receiver by re-signing Brandon Lloyd. Sure enough, the Rams confirmed on Wednesday, as reported by Ron Clements, that they are indeed interested in bringing Lloyd back for the 2012 season.

According to Clements' report, Rams COO Kevin Demoff described Lloyd's 11-game stint with the team as a sort of tryout. It sounds like an odd way of thinking about it, but the move was in line with a number of other moves the team made last year to bring in players on short-term deals. Imagine if the Rams had signed Lloyd long-term and things had failed to work out.

Demoff described Lloyd as "well-liked." His presence certainly added a competitive edge that the offense lacked beyond Steven Jackson.

Lloyd will most likely have options elsewhere in free agency. Late in the season, as the Spagnuolo administration crumbled, Lloyd publicly stated his desire to keep working with Josh McDaniels. The Patriots, McDaniels' new team, could certainly use a receiver, but Lloyd's new agent, Tom Condon of CAA, may complicate a reunion.
