FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Receiver Brandon Lloyd kept his interview with reporters short following Thursday's organized team activity.
If there was one takeaway from this perspective, it was when Lloyd said he's never been a part of a team with as many weapons as the Patriots have. It was easy to see where Lloyd will fit, working the outside parts of the field to help balance out the team's attack.
A few soundbites from Lloyd:
On working with Tom Brady. "It’s good. [He’s] definitely professional; makes the throws, makes the correct reads and delivers the ball. ... He’s good. He’s good from far away and he’s good up close."
On what stands out to him about the Patriots' approach. "The coaching, the way that the message is delivered and the way that the coaches coach and the players all fall in line. It’s been a good experience so far."
On how his transition to the Patriots has been going. "Plugging away. Just getting into our OTAs and understanding the process and the way that the plays are called and run and just the execution of the workouts and the timing and the scheduling. It’s been a change and I’m excited to see how everything works out."
On the dynamics of all the pass-catchers. "It’s everybody, including Wes [Welker] and Gronk [Rob Gronkowski] and the tight ends. Everybody has been communicating and excited. However this pans out, however the lineup falls, it’s going to be a talented group of players."
On how potent the offense could be. "Only time will tell. We still have a lot of work to do. We have a lot of practices ahead of us. We still have a lot of work to do before we can start making any predictions like that."
On how close the Patriots' offense is to what he played in with the Broncos and Rams under Josh McDaniels. "It’s pretty close. Obviously the terminology is mostly the same; [it’s] pretty much the same."
