Sources have reported that New England has come to terms with free agent WR Brandon Lloyd. Lloyd is a receptions machine who has the ability to stretch defenses and is widely regarded as having one of the best set of hands in the entire league.
New OC Josh McDaniels developed a great relationship with Lloyd, first in Denver then with St. Louis last year. This was the major selling point the Pats had, as the wideout made it well known that he wanted to stay with McDaniels. Signing a pro-bowl caliber wide receiver gives Bill Belichick some more freedom going into the draft as one of the only offensive team needs has been filled.
