    He's more than a one year wonder because he played well in 2009. I say keep him for the year because if he does well you can extend him, if he plays poorly let him go

    We have good depth if not better at wide out, if we traded Brandon for a stud D-linemen plus a pick or just a flat out stud. Would you trade Lloyd?
    in a heartbeat

    I say trade him. He's hit his ceiling, and we've seen the best he's ever gonna do.

    Lets start some of the younger WR's and trade Lloyd for picks while his value is high. It's not like we're competing for the SB.

    If dt were healthy i might think differently but if we are starting tt he is going to need some effective targets to be successful especially going long. I think we have to keep lloyd atleast this year if for no other reason to help in the developement of our new qb and offense and to help mentoring the younger guys in it. I would keep him this year and reevaluate towards the end of the year.

The Broncos need more talent on the roster. The WR position is in good shape for now and Lloyd is a big reason why. The team should not lose him.

    Lloyd is 30-years old but his legs are fresh, his body is not breaking down. I think he will be able to keep producing 3, 4 years down the road. And Lloyd is not just a burner that relies only on speed. He can make the acrobatic catch like Larry Fitzgerald, finding the ball in the air even when the defensive back is in good position.

    If the Broncos need 2, 3 or 4 years to rebuild the roster and become competitive again, Lloyd will be an important piece. He is the #1 WR. That's one less problem for the team to worry about.
    Lol. Clady is untouchable in my mind at this point so I never even considered him.

    Look. if Demaryius Thomas was healthy and ready to go, I might consider it. But he's not and the last thing this team needs is to ship out the league's leading WR and one of it's better players (again)....especially since there may be a young QB out there that could use the help.

    If he has another great year I'd probably franchise tag him

    Kyle Orton is a good qb. But not a difference maker. That is why Tebow was drafted. He can make plays when the play is needed to be made. Now people are clambering for him to start because if this fact. That's how I feel about DJ Williams. He is a good lb. But he doesn't make great plates in my opinion. I may be wrong but that's just my opinion.

    I'm gonna have to disagree with you on this one, DJ is the best linebacker on the roster. We are stacked with bodies not talent. So I wouldn't move the most talented linebacker

    Anyone who has followed football can see for long term success, you can not straddle the fence, you either commit to the rebuild or end up in mediocrity.

    I feel every move we make should be focused on 2013 being the year, if we are lucky it happens in 2012. However, when it happens we should be able to go on a 5-6 year run as a relevant contender.

    To me Deangelo, Bannan, Orton, Lloyd, BDawk, and any other twilight FA just does not fit my opinion...
    I think the fact Fox had instant success is a huge factor, in fact I think that was the sole reason he was brought in, I think we panicked a bit and brought him in.

    Great post! :thumb:

    I feel bad for posting this because I love the guy as much as a fan can love a player but Champ fits right in to your insightful philosophy. It pains me to say it but his presence and value could go a long way in righting the ship. Just look at the wonders the Herschel Walker trade did for Dallas in the early 90s. That trade created the foundation for their dynasty.

    EDITED -- I take back my statement... I can't bear to see Champ leave so I'm off to punish myself with a rusty cheese grater.

    Loyd's presence on the roster really doesn't help the Broncos because he would be monopolizing valuable reps that the younger players need in order to grow with the team as it's rebuilding.
    I also have concerns with Tebow building up a relationship with Lloyd only to see him gone after this year.

    Losing your main target can really regress a QB. If we are going with Tebow, we need to start cultivating the receivers he is going to be throwing to for the long haul.

    Signing Lloyd to 3 years would be okay, it gives Tebow "his guy" for a few years. Worst case is Lloyd being that guy and leaving in 2012.
