After four years in San Francisco Lloyd was traded to Washington in 2006.His first season there is widely considered a failure, as he caught 23 passes for no touchdowns. According to the Washington Post, citing NFL.com, "Lloyd suffered through the worst season for a starting receiver in the Super Bowl era... No starting No. 2 wide receiver in the NFL started more games (12) while producing less (23 catches, 365 yards)." Lloyd never made it out of Joe Gibbs' doghouse, due to a questionable attitude and alleged poorwork ethic. On Sunday, November 4, 2007, Lloyd was listed among Redskins inactives as the team traveled to play against the New York Jets. Citing the reason behind the move, Gibbs said that Lloyd had been told to remain behind in Washington as disciplinary action for missing important team meetings. Lloyd would spend the latter part of the 2007 season on injured reserve after having snapped his collar bone while making a diving touchdown catch during team practice. On February 26, 2008, the Redskins released Lloyd, who caught only two passes for 14 yards for the 2007 season. In March 2008 Lloyd signed a one year deal with Chicago. Lloyd had a successful start to his career in Chicago, establishing himself as a favorite target of quarterback Kyle Orton, with 15 catches in his first four games. An injury forced him to miss several weeks, and he fell out of favor with the coaching staff as a result. Lloyd played two years in Denver and led the NFL in receiving yards with 1,448 yards for the 2010 season. On October 17, 2011, Lloyd was traded to St. Louis where he caught 51 passes. The Rams gave up a conditional sixth-round pick that was upgraded to a fifth-round pick because Lloyd had over 30 receptions. On March 17, 2012, Lloyd joined the New England Patriots and finished the season with 74 catches for 911 yards and 4 touchdowns.He was released after one season because he didn't provide the vertical threat that the Pats needed and there were reports that his erratic behavior and was not a great fit in the locker room.
