NFL Rumors: San Francisco 49ers in talks to sign Brandon Lloyd

The NFL career of wide receiver Brandon Lloyd was put on hold in2013 when he decided to take a year off but it appears he’s looking to comeback and he’s drawing interest from a notable team. According to CSNBayArea reporter Matt Maiocco, the San Francisco 49ers have expressed an interest in Brandon Lloyd and are in talks to sign him this week.

Per CSNBayArea:

Veteran wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, who did not play last season, is in talks with the 49ers about the possibility of rebooting his NFL career, according to multiple sources.

Reportedly, he turned down the 49ers and several other teams that approached him about the possibility of playing last season.

It’s impossible to say at the moment whether or not the 49ers will end up signing Lloyd, as they tried to do that last season and he rejected them. But it appears that the receiver is ready to play football again and while he’s far from an elite option, Lloyd has always seemed to be a target worth having at your disposal.
