Brandon Lloyd's Suitors Might Include St. Louis Rams

If the Denver Broncos do decide to trade wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, the St. Louis Rams might be high on the list of teams calling Dove Valley. Why? The Rams' offensive coordinator is former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels. The NFL Network's Mike Lombardi and ESPN's Mike Sando both have the Rams as great possibilities. 

A deal makes sense for the Rams since they lost Danny Amendola for the season due to injury and Lloyd has his best season under McDaniels. At age 29, Lloyd finally had that breakout season, totaling 77 receptions for a league-leading 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Lombardi places the chances of a deal at 90 percent. Lloyd makes just $1.4 million this season and offers the Broncos nothing more than a compensatory pick once he leaves through free agency. Trading him now delivers the team something more tangible now.
