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

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

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

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

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

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