Ex-Patriot Brandon Lloyd Is Going Straight to DVD with Upcoming Zombie Movie

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterSeptember 17, 2013

Some of you Patriots fans craving another receiver on the team might be wondering what happened to Brandon Lloyd. Well, he features in a new movie with one of the Baldwin brothers (the big one), and yeah, it's going straight to DVD.

Masshole Sports spotted the 32-year-old free agent in his latest venture. Unfortunately for him, life after football is heavy with the walking dead. 

The man who caught 35 touchdowns in his career and last played in New England under Bill Belichick portrays Sgt. Chuck Lloyd in After Effect, which will hit stores on Oct. 8.

Plan your trips to the Wal-Mart bargain bin accordingly. 

If you want a sneak peek, here's a clip of Lloyd finding quite the bathroom cleanup. (Warning: NSFW gore at the end.)

If ever there was a need for a courtesy flush.

The movie stars Daniel Baldwin, whose credits include gems like Zero Dark Dirty, Christmas with a Capital C and Stripperland. He is also the one Baldwin fans have trouble naming when they play "Name All the Baldwin Brothers."

As for plot, Masshole reports it's about "a bunch of college students who sign up for a research study only to find out they volunteered for a military experiment that turns them into zombies."

How unfortunate.

All snark aside, my love for zombie movies and straight-to-DVD fare pretty much guarantees I will see this at some point and absolutely love it in the same way I love Syfy movies. 

Mass Live is careful to point out Lloyd did have some options this season. According to their report, six NFL teams, including the Patriots, were willing to bring Lloyd in this year. 

That bite from the football bug must have worn off, because the one-time Pro-Bowler is apparently content to remain a free agent at the moment. 

To be fair, going around shooting zombies must be a ton of fun.
