Watch Video: Patriots GameDay: Things To Know About Brandon Lloyd
BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, slimpulse free sample I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.
If he wasn’t playing football, slimpulse free sample he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Slimpulse free sample He loves television broadcasting, slimpulse free sample and those are his plans after football. Slimpulse free sample After all, slimpulse free sample 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, slimpulse free sample although he could easily do that. Slimpulse free sample Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.
But for now, slimpulse free sample he’ll stick with catching the football, slimpulse free sample no matter what it means for his body. Slimpulse free sample Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Slimpulse free sample We’ve already seen it several times this year; his touchdown catch against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3 and a sprawling sideline attempt in Seattle are just a couple examples.
After all, slimpulse free sample Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, slimpulse free sample a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Slimpulse free sample I would rather catch the ball at all costs, slimpulse free sample” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Slimpulse free sample “I want to get the field advancement. Slimpulse free sample That’s the only thing on my mind. Slimpulse free sample I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, slimpulse free sample 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. Slimpulse free sample The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Slimpulse free sample In fact, slimpulse free sample 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, slimpulse free sample and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, slimpulse free sample” said Lloyd. Slimpulse free sample “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Slimpulse free sample ‘Let’s run this this way, slimpulse free sample’ and I said alright. Slimpulse free sample That’s how we do it. Slimpulse free sample That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, slimpulse free sample because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Slimpulse free sample Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, slimpulse free sample Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
