Brandon Lloyd Dances Around Tim Tebow's Future

A little over a week after Brandon Lloyd joined the St. Louis Rams after a trade with the Denver Broncos, the 2010 receiving yards leader went on ESPN 101 in St. Louis and talked about Tim Tebow. When asked on The Fastlane about his thoughts on Tebow's future, Lloyd said the following:

I don’t know. I think only time will tell with that style of play. I think it is effective last Sunday, but I just don’t know how effective that style can be over the course of long games and playing formidable opponents.

But that's likely the consensus opinion of those who aren't a partisan in the Tebow controversy. Still, it seems more likely that Lloyd is being nice here and not letting it be known that he doesn't think Tebow can succeed.

That can also be gleamed from his answer to whether Tebow's mechanics will work in the league:

Not being able to deliver that ball before the separation happens? It just throws a monkey wrench into all the time and anything you are trying to accomplish down the field.

Just don't start buying into Skip Bayless' awful claim that Lloyd purposely dropped a two-point conversion pass to show displeasure with Tebow.
