Brandon Lloyd Trade Rumors: Are The Carolina Panthers, Tennessee Titans Interested?

With just four days remaining before the NFL trade deadline hits, interested teams will inquire about Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, who is reportedly quite available. Two teams have already emerged as potential landing spots, but it seems unlikely that either place will trade for him--at least according to the beat writers.

The Carolina Panthers could use another wide receiver opposite Steve Smith, which would help rookie quarterback Cam Newton. However, long-time Panthers beat writer Darin Gantt thinks a trade won't happen between the two teams because Lloyd is an aging veteran who is a free agent and wants a nice, new contract at the end of the year. Those are all reasons the Broncos want to trade him.

The Tennessee Titans are also a possibility as they lost receiver Kenny Britt to a right knee injury in a game against the Broncos this season. Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean believes the Titans are interested in Lloyd as well as other receivers. He doesn't believe the Titans will make a deal with any team.
