Brandon Lloyd is making an impression at 49ers camp

The curious case of Brandon Lloyd was a test in the waters that simply did not work out for the Patriots. A talented wide receiver, Lloyd failed to bring in the electric play-making ability that New England fans thought they were guaranteed when he signed with the Pats. After a few flashy plays and a slightly above average (if that) season in Foxboro, Lloyd quickly found himself...

Jim Harbaugh Impressed by Brandon Lloyd’s ‘Film Study’

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh seems to be one of the oddest characters in the entire league.

The wait was well worth it for WR Lloyd

It took a year, but veteran wide receiver Brandon Lloyd finally found what he was looking for: a second chance at playing for the 49ers. Lloyd sat out last season despite catching 74 passes for 911 yards and four touchdowns for the New England Patriots in 2012 in hopes the 49ers came calling.
