    So it seems like Lloyd is on his way out of New England, thoughts on adding him?

    Alterraun Verner once called Lloyd the "toughest WR to defend"

    Depends on the price, rather grab a WR in the early rounds and see what happens.

    Lets say the same three-year, $12 million contract New England gave him.

    That would be interesting. On one hand we're not really a playoff contender so spending money on these kind of guys when he could be replaced by a rookie in unwise but on the other hand if he continues to play at a high level he could just push us into the playoffs (assuming Locker plays well and OL is better). We also need some depth and a guy to replace Britt when he gets injured/arrested so on 2nd thought I would probably do that deal.

    I love Lloyd as a playmaker, but I don't think committing to a player like him is a good idea. If it can't work in New England, why would it work in Tennessee? There have been strong hints that he's bipolar and otherwise unstable. Not really what a team lacking leadership (like the Titans) needs in the locker room.

    Sometimes these players need a wake up call and maybe with his age now he'll mature a bit. I think going from a place like New England to Tennessee might wise him up a bit.

    I'd pass for the exact reasons Toronto just posted.

    Good WR, but only when coached by McDaniels. Rather have Ramses Barden....

    Then again I have real high hopes for Britt this year. Which is good because if he does have a great year we should still be able to resign him for a small price due to all the baggage that comes with him.
