BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, buy januvia I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.
If he wasn’t playing football, buy januvia he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Buy januvia He loves television broadcasting, buy januvia and those are his plans after football. Buy januvia After all, buy januvia he majored in journalism at the University of Illinois.
And don’t automatically think he’ll he’ll end up as just another talking head on Sunday mornings, buy januvia although he could easily do that. Buy januvia Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.
But for now, buy januvia he’ll stick with catching the football, buy januvia no matter what it means for his body. Buy januvia Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost.

After all, buy januvia Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, buy januvia a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Buy januvia I would rather catch the ball at all costs, buy januvia” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Buy januvia “I want to get the field advancement. Buy januvia That’s the only thing on my mind. Buy januvia I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, buy januvia I just want to catch the ball no matter how I do it.”
Of course it helps when he has a guy like “Tom Terrific” firing the football his way. Buy januvia The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Buy januvia In fact, buy januvia Brady has no problem grabbing Lloyd at any time during the day to watch film together.
“He’ll pull me in randomly during the day to watch film, buy januvia and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, buy januvia” said Lloyd. Buy januvia “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Buy januvia ‘Let’s run this this way, buy januvia’ and I said alright. Buy januvia That’s how we do it. Buy januvia That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, buy januvia because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Buy januvia Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, buy januvia Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
