Former WR Lloyd has announced his retirement
Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd hasn’t been on an NFL roster since finishing out last season with the 49ers, and he will likely never suit up again for a NFL team again. Lloyd announced his retirement from the NFL on Thursday after spending 11 years with six different teams.
“I am so thankful for the years I spent in the NFL,” Lloyd said in a release. “I do not have one regret, and I am blessed to leave the game in such a healthy and happy place. I will do all I can to positively represent the league and its players for the rest of my life.”
The highlight of Lloyd’s career came back in 2010 with the Broncos and 2011 with the Patriots. In 2010, he led the league with 1,448 receiving yards and then caught 74 balls for just shy of 1,000 yards the following season. After that, Lloyd struggled to stay in the league, not being on an active roster in 2013 and playing sparingly last year with San Francisco.
The former 4th round pick ended his career with 399 receptions, 5,989 yards and 36 TD’s.
