Watch Video: Patriots GameDay: Things To Know About Brandon Lloyd
BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, cla free sample I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.
If he wasn’t playing football, cla free sample he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Cla free sample He loves television broadcasting, cla free sample and those are his plans after football. Cla free sample After all, cla free sample he majored in journalism at the University of Illinois.
And don’t automatically think he’ll he’ll end up as just another talking head on Sunday mornings, cla free sample although he could easily do that. Cla free sample Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.
But for now, cla free sample he’ll stick with catching the football, cla free sample no matter what it means for his body. Cla free sample Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Cla free sample We’ve already seen it several times this year; his touchdown catch against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3 and a sprawling sideline attempt in Seattle are just a couple examples.
After all, cla free sample Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, cla free sample a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Cla free sample I would rather catch the ball at all costs, cla free sample” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Cla free sample “I want to get the field advancement. Cla free sample That’s the only thing on my mind. Cla free sample I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, cla free sample I just want to catch the ball no matter how I do it.”
Of course it helps when he has a guy like “Tom Terrific” firing the football his way. Cla free sample The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Cla free sample In fact, cla free sample Brady has no problem grabbing Lloyd at any time during the day to watch film together.
“He’ll pull me in randomly during the day to watch film, cla free sample and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, cla free sample” said Lloyd. Cla free sample “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Cla free sample ‘Let’s run this this way, cla free sample’ and I said alright. Cla free sample That’s how we do it. Cla free sample That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, cla free sample because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Cla free sample Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, cla free sample Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
