Nobody Should Be Surprised By New England Patriots Releasing Brandon Lloyd

+Read full article

(Robert Deutsch/USA Today Sports)

Well, it looks like Brandon Lloyd will be looking for his fourth team to join in three seasons now that he’s no longer a member of the New England Patriots.

In a move that was expected by many, the Patriots parted ways with Lloyd on Saturday after just one season as he failed to live up to the hype during the 2012 season. New England had high expectations for Lloyd when they brought him on board last offseason and even though he caught 74 passes for 911 yards with four touchdowns–he never really emerged into the type of deep threat the Patriots were hoping for.

Now, it looks like Lloyd will be back on the market looking for a new home for the 2013 season.

There’s no question some team will take a chance on Lloyd considering the potential is there, but whether or not he can return to the dominant form from the 2010 season is a different story. One of the main reasons why so many teams have expressed interest in Lloyd over the last couple of seasons is due to the fact that he caught 77 passes for 1,448 yards to go along with 11 touchdowns during the 2010 season.

As for the Patriots, it’s been an interesting week for the organization as they’ve parted ways with two of their top wide receivers from the 2012 season in Lloyd and Wes Welker. It’s still early on, but Tom Brady and company could be in for an interesting 2013 season when it comes to the passing game.
