Under the era of the Belichick led offense over in Foxboro, the Patriots have been able to be responsible in transforming the league into the pass heavy scheme it is today. None of this could have become reality without the magic touch of Tom Brady, but almost as important as their all star quarterback, the receivers up in New England have payed huge contributions as well. From the potential hall of famers of Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and the Gronkowski’s over their years, you can now add Brandon Lloyd to that list.
It came as a shocker that they were able to sign Lloyd for what they did, and it was arguably the biggest steal of free agency this year! The Patriots ended up giving Lloyd only $12m over a three year contract. They have not yet determined how much cash is guaranteed, but to get a receiver of Lloyd’s caliber for a price such as that is insane, and sums up yet another great free agency signing for the New England Patriots on the offensive side of the ball.
