While some fans are wondering WHY? I’m wondering WHAT?
Why would the Denver Broncos trade away their best WR, a Pro Bowl receiver at that?
Lloyd would have to be resigned and offered a hefty contract that the young Broncos are not willig to do. Lloyd is currently 31 years old and by the time the rebuliding of the Broncos is at its prime he will be retired.
The Broncos have plenty of young WRs and need to see what kind of talent they have or what talent they will need to go after. It’s not personal, it’s just business. DJ Williams is also being shopped around.
The Broncos started the season with the fight to win win win. However, now sitting at 1-4 going into the bye week, it’s time to change gears. Trade and get what we can for the guys that won’t be here next year or two years down the road, which is what they appear to be doing with Brandon Lloyd. I hate to see it happen, but it’s the business of the NFL.
Now the only question left to ask is what can the Broncos get for the Pro Bowl WR?
