Brandon Lloyd Traded To St. Louis Rams

The Denver Broncos won't have one of their best weapons when the Kansas City Chiefs play them twice this season. Jason La Canfora reported on Monday morning that the Broncos have traded WR Brandon Lloyd to the St. Louis Rams.

No word on what the compensation is but the Broncos were reportedly seeking a third round pick.

This means that Lloyd is out of the AFC West, which is good news for the Chiefs. Lloyd has two touchdowns against the Chiefs in Denver last year and he's a solid receiver so taking options away from Tim Tebow helps the Chiefs in the short-term.

Lloyd is entering the final year of his contract so I imagine the Rams would want to give him a long-term deal after trading for him. It'll be interesting to see how much Lloyd can fetch considering the Chiefs could be giving Dwayne Bowe a contract at some point.
