Watch Video: Patriots GameDay: Things To Know About Brandon Lloyd
BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, discount chloromint I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.
If he wasn’t playing football, discount chloromint he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Discount chloromint He loves television broadcasting, discount chloromint and those are his plans after football. Discount chloromint After all, discount chloromint 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, discount chloromint although he could easily do that. Discount chloromint Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.
But for now, discount chloromint he’ll stick with catching the football, discount chloromint no matter what it means for his body. Discount chloromint Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Discount chloromint 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, discount chloromint Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, discount chloromint a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Discount chloromint I would rather catch the ball at all costs, discount chloromint” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Discount chloromint “I want to get the field advancement. Discount chloromint That’s the only thing on my mind. Discount chloromint I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, discount chloromint 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. Discount chloromint The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Discount chloromint In fact, discount chloromint 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, discount chloromint and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, discount chloromint” said Lloyd. Discount chloromint “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Discount chloromint ‘Let’s run this this way, discount chloromint’ and I said alright. Discount chloromint That’s how we do it. Discount chloromint That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, discount chloromint because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Discount chloromint Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, discount chloromint Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
