St. Louis Rams free agent wide receiver Brandon Lloyd would still like to play for Josh McDaniels, according to Tom Condon, his agent. He would also like to get paid said his agent.
Condon discussed his new client's free agent future with the Boston Herald on Thursday.
"If they [New England] have an interest they call up and tell you when free agency starts or they meet you at the combine or whenever," Condon told the Herald. "We both know what Brandon is. He's a smart, explosive receiver. He's a player who is going to get offers. He'd like to be with Josh. He'd also like to get paid. I think he'll be a player teams will be interested in."
Explosive, eh? That quality was one cited by the Rams' new general manager, Les Snead, in describing the kinds of players he prefers.
Earlier in the week, the Herald noted the icy relationship between the Patriots and Tom Condon. New England has not signed a player represented exclusively by Condon since a contract dispute over Ben Watson in 2004. Condon made it clear in Thursday's report that he was more than willing to listen to offers from the Patriots.
As you can see from Condon's quote above, the Patriots are not the only team he expects to be in contact with concerning Lloyd.
Rams COO Kevin Demoff said on Wednesday that the team was indeed interested in re-signing Lloyd. St. Louis traded what became a fifth-round pick for Lloyd at the 2011 trade deadline in an effort to salvage some sliver of hope for a season that was already hopeless by October. Despite the misfortunes of the offense, Lloyd still managed to catch 51 passes for 683 yards and five touchdowns in 11 games with the Rams.
