Watch Video: Patriots GameDay: Things To Know About Brandon Lloyd

BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, cla online review I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.

If he wasn’t playing football, cla online review he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Cla online review He loves television broadcasting, cla online review and those are his plans after football. Cla online review After all, cla online review 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 online review although he could easily do that. Cla online review Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.

But for now, cla online review he’ll stick with catching the football, cla online review no matter what it means for his body. Cla online review Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Cla online review 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 online review Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.

“When I was younger, cla online review a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Cla online review I would rather catch the ball at all costs, cla online review” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Cla online review “I want to get the field advancement. Cla online review That’s the only thing on my mind. Cla online review I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, cla online review 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 online review The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Cla online review In fact, cla online review 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 online review and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, cla online review” said Lloyd. Cla online review “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Cla online review ‘Let’s run this this way, cla online review’ and I said alright. Cla online review That’s how we do it. Cla online review That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, cla online review because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Cla online review Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”

After a two touchdown day in London, cla online review Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
