Reports: WR Lloyd expected to visit 49ers

Rams free-agent receiver Brandon Lloyd, who expressed his interest in becoming a Patriot countless times leading up to free agency and was thought to be a target of the, is expected to visit the 49ers, according to an ESPN report. NFL Network reported the former 49ers draft pick is on his way to San Francisco.

The receiver market is very thin at the moment, so this will likely cause some freaking out by Patriots fans.

We’ll have to see what happens. This could be just a negotiating ploy by Lloyd’s agent, Tom Condon, who has had a stormy relationship with the Patriots. Or maybe the team wants to go in another direction after seeing the way the market went on the first day of free agency (an offer sheet for Steelers WR Mike Wallace, perhaps?).
