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