ESPN's "NFL Live" show today mentioned free-agent receiver Brandon Lloyd's interest in the Patriots, a storyline covered from Lloyd's interview on PFT Live on ProFootballTalk.com.

The segment included the following chart from "Next Level" statistics:

Most 25-yard receptions in last 2 seasons (by receiver)
Mike Wallace (Steelers) -- 29
DeSean Jackson (Eagles) -- 28
Brandon Lloyd (Broncos/Rams) -- 26
Larry Fitzgerald (Cardinals) -- 26

Wes Welker, it was noted on the chart, is the Patriots' leader over the last two seasons in that category (with 14).

For those who believe the Patriots could benefit from a big-play receiver outside the numbers, this stat supports that point.
