Mort: Brandon Lloyd is a Ram

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Denver Broncos have traded receiver Brandon Lloyd to the St. Louis Rams.

The Broncos will get a sixth-round draft pick that could become a fifth-round pick based on performance. The trade reunites Lloyd with former Denver coach Josh McDaniels. He is the offensive coordinator in St. Louis.

Lloyd had a breakout year at the age of 29 last year under McDaniels’ guidance. I will be back with more thoughts on this deal later.
