The Super Bowl is days away, and though the Denver Broncos may not have reached the ultimate game, they still have a few former Broncos in the news.
Josh McDaniels, the Broncos' head coach from 2009-2010, is slated to return to his job with the New England Patriots for his second round as the team's offensive coordinator. He is currently serving as an offensive assistant to the AFC champs as they prepare for Super Bowl XLVI.
McDaniels may also bring a familiar face with him to New England. Nolan Nawrocki of Pro Football Weekly recently suggested that McDaniels may lobby for a reunion with former Broncos wide receiver Brandon Lloyd. After leading the NFL with 1448 receiving yards in 2010, Lloyd spent only four games with Broncos in 2011 before being traded to the St. Louis Rams.
Lloyd finished the 2011 season with 966 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns. He will be an unrestricted free agent in 2012.
