NFL Free Agency 2012: Patriots, Brandon Lloyd Close On Deal

Brandon Lloyd is very close to becoming a member of the New England Patriots, according to a report from The Boston Globe. Lloyd, a free agent wide receiver, has been linked to the Pats because of his pre-existing relationship with new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who Lloyd played for in Denver and again in St. Louis.

A league source Friday night said that the 30-year-old Lloyd and the Patriots were "close'' to coming to a contract agreement. Once it's finalized, the team could potentially have the outside-the-numbers receiving threat it has been lacking since Randy Moss was traded a quarter of the way into the 2010 season.

Lloyd entered the league in 2003 and has played for five teams, with his longest tenures coming with the Denver Broncos (three years) and the San Francisco 49ers (three years). Lloyd has 4,784 career receiving yards and 31 touchdowns in 112 games.
