Report: 49ers in talks with Brandon Lloyd
After a year out of the league, veteran wide receiver Brandon Lloyd is set to attempt a comeback. According to CSN Bay Area, multiple sources have said that Lloyd is in talks with the San Francisco 49ers about potentially making a return to the NFL
Lloyd entered the league as a fourth-round pick of the 49ers in 2003 and has played for six NFL teams, with 385 receptions for 5,695 yards and 35 touchdowns in his 10-year career.
The 49ers currently have Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree slated as the starting wide receivers, with Quinton Patton holding the No. 3 spot. San Francisco is also in the mix to add a wideout in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft, so Lloyd would have to challenge for the No. 3 spot or likely just serve as filler on the depth chart.
During the 2012 season, Lloyd recorded 74 receptions for 911 yards and four touchdowns for the New England Patriots.
