Broncos Counting On WR Brandon Lloyd?

With Brandon Marshall gone, one player that the Broncos may be counting heavily on in 2010 is wide out Brandon Lloyd. The Denver Post comments on what the team feels about Lloyd entering 2010:

Coach Josh McDaniels and Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton have said this offseason that WR Brandon Lloyd can be a reliable downfield threat. “I think I run every route like I’m the one getting the ball. That’s always my approach, and it’s my approach here,” Lloyd said. Some front-office executives were nervous about Lloyd when he was on the open market. He has clashed with coaching staffs in Washington and San Francisco and was suspended for one game by the Redskins in 2006 for throwing his helmet on the sideline during a game and arguing with an assistant coach. Former Redskins coach Joe Gibbs also once left him off a road trip for missing a meeting and he has also struggled to stay involved in the offense. He hasn’t had as many as four receptions in three consecutive games since 2004. “But I feel like I always work for my opportunities,” Lloyd said. “I prepare for the ball to come my way.”
