Brandon Lloyd will represent the Denver Broncos in the Pro Bowl, the NFL’s annual all-star game. Some people are down on the Pro Bowl but I actually like it–I’ll take all the February football that I can get. Anyway, Lloyd had a special message for three of his former employers, specifially the 49ers, Redskins and Bears.
On a conference call with media members afterwards, Lloyd was asked what message, if any, he wanted to convey to his three former teams, to which Brandon shot back, ”told you so,” While his tone was said to have been somewhat tongue-in-cheek, his words got a little more pointed, as Lloyd then added, ”No, I want to say, ‘(Bleep) you.’ And I mean that in the most professional way.”
Lloyd’s 72 catches are a personal best over the course of a season, and more than he caught for the Redskins and Bears combined. The NFL is so weird like this; one team’s garbage is another team’s go-to receiver. But at least Brandon Lloyd was professional about it. He’s just a garbled Indian accent away from a career in tech support.
