Brandon Lloyd made a zombie movie last year!

Brandon Lloyd made a zombie movie last year!

Brandon Lloyd was busy during his year off. He made a zombie movie! The San Francisco 49ers announced Tuesday morning that they had signed wide receiver Brandon Lloyd to a 1-year contract. Lloyd joins a wide receiver corps that features locks at the top two spots, in Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. Quinton Patton was a front-runner for playing time as the third receiver, but Lloyd will bring added competition to training camp. Last September, there were reports the 49ers were among six or seven teams that approached Lloyd about a job. Lloyd reportedly rejected al the teams, claiming he...

Brandon Lloyd contract not guaranteed, exceeds minimum salary benefit requirements

The 49ers agreed to terms on a 1-year deal with wide receiver Brandon Lloyd. We break down the contract details that have emerged. The San Francisco 49ers signed wide receiver Brandon Lloyd to a 1-year contract on Tuesday, and we're starting to get details. Matt Maiocco first reported the contract is for the veteran minimum of $955,000, with a $50,000 workout bonus. The $1,005,000 deal counts for that entire amount against the salary cap, but none of it is guaranteed. When I first saw those numbers, I was confused because a veteran minimum deal with less than $65,000 in added compensation...

Who knows what the 49ers will get out of wide receiver Brandon Lloyd

So what will Brandon Lloyd bring with his second stint in San Francisco? Lloyd has the potential to be a productive contributor, even a lethal option in a three-receiver set. He also might not make the team. Lloyd was out of football last year to reportedly devote more time to his film and rap careers. Before he left, Lloyd caught 74 of Tom Brady’s passes in New England. The 49ers would like to see Lloyd turn back to his 2010 season in Denver when he caught 77 passes for 1,448 yards, 11 touchdowns while maintaining a 18.8 yards average per catch. The 49ers are looking for chunk yards and...

Four of ten worst catch rates made up of current, former Raiders

Four of ten worst catch rates made up of current, former Raiders

There's another graphic out there that is a cruel reminder of some of the failings of the Raiders the past decade plus. And this one can't be blamed on someone "taking shots at the Raiders" as so many Raiders fans like to accuse analysts of doing. This graphic was put out by Scott Kacsmar of Football Outsiders due to the 49ers signing Brandon Lloyd to a contract. In just so happens that regardless of the pass-catching inconsitencies of Lloyd, the Raiders receiving woes have him beat. Brandon Lloyd makes spectacular catches, but has one of the lowest catch rates since 1999: #49ers...

Flamboyant, productive WR signed after year hiatus? Not Moss this time, but rather Lloyd

To help launch their 2012 season’s Super Bowl run, the 49ers lured a veteran wide receiver out of a one-year hiatus. Can Brandon Lloyd be this year’s version of Randy Moss, with all due respect to their differing talents, personalities and accomplishments? Lloyd signed a one-year contract Tuesday with the 49ers, who drafted him in [...]

49ers sign well-traveled WR Brandon Lloyd

Brandon Lloyd’s nomadic career is coming full circle. The 49ers signed the 32-year-old wide receiver to a one-year contract today, reuniting him with the team that drafted him the fourth round in 2003. Lloyd, who didn’t play in the NFL in 2013, was traded by the 49ers to Washington after the 2005 season and enjoyed a long-awaited breakout year in 2010 when he had career-highs in catches (77), yards (1,448) and touchdowns (11) with the Broncos. The 49ers will be Lloyd’s sixth team since 2007. Lloyd, who reportedly turned down contract offers from several teams, including the 49ers, in...

49ers sign wide receiver Brandon Lloyd to 1-year contract

The 49ers have signed wide receiver Brandon Lloyd to a 1-year deal. We break down what it means for the wide receiver corps. The San Francisco 49ers announced this morning that they have signed wide receiver Brandon Lloyd to a 1-year contract. The move comes five days after word broke that Lloyd had met with the 49ers. This also comes seven months after the team was reportedly rebuffed when they approached Lloyd. More than likely this is a fairly basic league minimum deal. The 49ers bring in a guy with little to no risk, and maybe they get another season out of him. He sat out the 2013...
