The San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, April 15 signed WR Brandon Lloyd to an undisclosed 1-year deal.
Huddle Up: Lloyd sat out last season after his 74-catch, 911-yard 2012 campaign in New England and gives the Niners some veteran insurance behind starters Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. Don't be surprised, however, if the Niners still draft a wideout next month.

The San Francisco 49ers are talking to free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd (Patriots).
Huddle Up: The well-travelled Lloyd didn't play last season following his 74-catch, 911-yard 2012 showing in N.E. Now, he's eyeing a return to his original team, where he'd be no better than the third WR option behind starters Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. The Niners have been kicking the tires on wideouts this offseason, so see if anything develops.

The New England Patriots, New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers are among the teams to check in with free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd (Patriots), but he has rejected those inquiries because he does not believe he is physically or mentally ready to play.
Huddle Up: This is an interesting development given the needs these teams have at receiver. It's unlikely Lloyd would have any fantasy value even if he does decide he still wants to play football.

The New England Patriots may not be interested in re-signing free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd because he reportedly was not a good fit in the locker room last season, which is something the team likely will be looking for this season.
Huddle Up: Considering the Pats' current need for pass catchers and the fact that Lloyd is continually bouncing around, already having played for 6 teams in 10 NFL seasons, it would appear the WR has a hard time fitting in.

The Kansas City Chiefs could show interest in free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd if WRs Donnie Avery and Jonathan Baldwin are not good enough complements to WR Dwayne Bowe.
Huddle Up: The news of the day in New England could cause the Patriots to consider bringing Lloyd back as well, but he'd also be an intriguing fit in Andy Reid's pass-happy offense in Kansas City.

The New York Jets could express interest in free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd this offseason. The Jets have already expressed interest in free-agent WR Braylon Edwards and WR Ramses Barden and are scheduled to meet with free-agent WR Joshua Cribbs as well.
Huddle Up: Adding Lloyd would make sense if for no other reason than to gain further insight into the Patriots offense. That the Jets also have a need for receiver help comes into play as well. Still, with quarterback questions galore and a run-heavy offense there is little fantasy value to be found amongst any of the aforementioned targets.
