Super Bowl 2012: Patriots New OC Josh McDaniels Might Pursue WR Brandon Lloyd

With the Super Bowl around the corner, the St. Louis Rams are not entirely out of the news despite being well out of the playoffs. Nolan Nawrocki of Pro Football Weekly recently suggested that the Rams' top wide receiver from the 2011 season, WR Brandon Lloyd, may follow the recently-departed offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to New England.

McDaniels started his pro career with the New England Patriots, working his way up to the offensive coordinator position before being hired as the Denver Broncos' head coach. After getting fired in his second year with the Broncos, McDaniels took over in St. Louis, and midway through the season, he traded for his former pupil Lloyd, who had excelled with McDaniels in Colorado.

Lloyd led the NFL in receiving yards in 2010 with 1448 yards while with the Broncos, and he led the Rams with 966 total yards and 5 touchdowns in 2011. Lloyd is expected to become a free agent this offseason.
