New England Patriots: Brandon Lloyd Impressing at Camp Thus Far

Brandon Lloyd is doing his best thus far to make sure all New England faithful quickly forget the other man who used to dawn his No. 85 jersey. Lloyd has been impressive thus far in camp, and those around have noticed his comfort level in this familiar system. 

Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston is seeing the obvious benefits of coming from Josh McDaniels’ offense in Denver and St. Louis.

"He looks like he's been playing with quarterback Tom Brady for a decade"

Maybe the best part about Lloyd is that he makes it clear his work getting adjusted with his all-world quarterback is not finished by any means, as he stated in an interview after Saturday's practice. He remains humble in the face of all the praise he is receiving in the media day after day as he puts on a show at training camp.

Lloyd has been seen making plays through each of the team's first four practices, which continued with a little fun on Sunday when he reeled in a Brady bomb well behind the defense on a flea-flicker, as Andy Hart of Patriots Football Weekly observed.

Lloyd's apparent connection with Brady and his skill level being noticeably higher than any other option the Patriots lineup on the outside should make Lloyd a fun player for fans to watch throughout the remainder of camp, and more importantly, when the team hits the field for real this September.
