BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, order amantadine I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.
If he wasn’t playing football, order amantadine he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Order amantadine He loves television broadcasting, order amantadine and those are his plans after football.

And don’t automatically think he’ll he’ll end up as just another talking head on Sunday mornings, order amantadine although he could easily do that. Order amantadine Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.
But for now, order amantadine he’ll stick with catching the football, order amantadine no matter what it means for his body. Order amantadine Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Order amantadine 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, order amantadine Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, order amantadine a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Order amantadine I would rather catch the ball at all costs, order amantadine” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Order amantadine “I want to get the field advancement. Order amantadine That’s the only thing on my mind. Order amantadine I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, order amantadine 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. Order amantadine The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Order amantadine In fact, order amantadine 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, order amantadine and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, order amantadine” said Lloyd. Order amantadine “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Order amantadine ‘Let’s run this this way, order amantadine’ and I said alright. Order amantadine That’s how we do it. Order amantadine That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, order amantadine because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Order amantadine Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, order amantadine Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
