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