New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Brandon Lloyd Shined in Day Four of Patriots Training Camp


Instead of giving you guys the biggest news and notes from Sunday’s practice at Gillette Stadium, I have decided to cut right to the biggest story: Brandon Lloyd continued to shine.

The newly acquired wide receiver has been impressive all throughout training camp, but Sunday afternoon he really stood out and displayed his skills at a high level. The prime example of what Lloyd can achieve this season came when Tom Brady connected with Lloyd on a 45-yard bomb, right over the head of the team’s No. 1 cornerback, Devin McCourty—and of course, the crowd roared.

Yesterday we highlighted how Lloyd has acknowledged that the chemistry between him and Brady is still a work in progress, but from what we’ve seen thus far, there’s no reason not to believe that these two are going to be a deadly combination in 2012.

Lloyd’s contribution wont solely be as a deep threat, as he has all the tools to emerge as New England’s No. 1 wide receiver, with Wes Welker in the slot.

Lloyd had yet another shining moment Sunday afternoon when Brady found him in the back of the endzone during a redzone simulation for the Patriots offense and defense. Standing in at 6’0″, Lloyd definitely has a tall, athletic frame but he also attacks the ball and has an amazing leaping ability—which will create yet another redzone target for Brady and the Pats.

How great of an impact Lloyd will have on the Patriots in 2012 has yet to be determined, but throughout the first four days of training camp, the new duo couldn’t have asked for a better start.
