The Denver Broncos turned out to be one of the biggest surprises of the 2012 season as Peyton Manning helped the team finish with the best record in the AFC during the regular season. On top of Manning, one of the main reasons why the Broncos were so successful was due to a strong group of receivers in Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t consider bringing on board another key wide receiver if available.
One player that comes to mind who could be available–Brandon Lloyd of the New England Patriots.
At this point, all signs point to the Patriots parting ways with their wide receiver after just one season as he failed to live up to their expectations in 2012. New England brought Lloyd on board last season with the intention he would finally fill the void for a deep threat the team had been looking for since Randy Moss was traded a few years ago and while he showed potential at times, it’s safe to say he never lived up to the hype.
If Lloyd does become available, the Broncos should strongly consider bringing him back on board for the 2013 season.
The addition of Lloyd could give Denver an even more dangerous passing game heading into next season–which would be scary considering they will most likely already be one of the top teams in the AFC at the beginning of the season. It may seem like a long shot, but the thought of Lloyd playing alongside Thomas and Decker with Manning calling the shots is scary for any opponent to think about.
