Rumors have been swirling all day, saying that if Josh Mcdaniels comes to KC as an offensive coordinator, WR BrandonLloyd will come too. Imagine that. Dwayne Bowe, Brandon Lloyd, Steve Breaston, and Jonathan Baldwin. 2 things I should also note: The Chiefs today said they will try to bring Orton back for next year, and Brandon Lloyd was one of the only Denver Broncos to defend Orton during training camp. And also, Brandon Lloyd was born In Kansas City.
Rumors of Mcdaniels coming to Kansas City as an Offensive Coordinator have been around since the beginning of last year. But with all the changes coming in KC, it seems pretty convincing that he might be coming there in the near future. According to Brandon Lloyd himself, Wherever Mcdaniels goes, he goes. Lloyd said " Im tied to him. He uses me differently than any offensive coordinator has in my career" That sure sounds like he will go wherever Mcdaniels does. The Chiefs have not had a great deep ball receiver in years, and if Jonathan Baldwin isn't ready for a starting job yet, Signing Lloyd would be great for a few years until Baldwin is completely ready.
Signing Lloyd, would give the Chiefs by far, the best Wide Receiving corp in the NFL. By far. The only problem is, Dwayne Bowe's contract ends this year, and if he doesn't re-sign, that will hurt them. A lot. Letting him go to another team would be above crazy. He has caught for 1,00 yards this year, with 3 Qb's, and 2 of them have struggled in all of their starts. If Bowe is re-signed, or they give himthe franchise tag, They would be all set. They would have a great deep ball receiver in Lloyd, Bowe, a big, strong, physical wide out who is a threat anywhere on the field, Steve Breaston, who has had a good, not great year, in the slot position this year, but would create some mismatches when most of the attention on Bowe and Lloyd. Then Last, Jonathan Baldwin, a 2011 1st round draft pick from Pitt, who showed some ability to jump up, and make any catch, at any time, and when he develops, he could be huge threat in the Chiefs offense. Think that's great? Remember they have top RB Jamaal Charles too. Yeah., I know.
Yes, there obviously are a lot of "if's" in here, but really, it's quite simple when you think about it. They would have to Bring in Romeo Crennel, interim HC, as the permanent HC, (Which is really almost a done deal if the Chiefs win Sunday), Bring Josh Mcdaniels in as the offensive coordinator, which is very possible with Gm Scott Pioli's past, working with Josh in New England, and then re-sign Bowe and Sign Brandon Lloyd, who today said himself, that he will practically go where Mcdaniels goes (Teams). With a new look Chiefs staff with Crennel and Mcdaniels, Adding Brandon Lloyd, and Re-signing Kyle Orton to Qb, The Chiefs are setting themselves up for long time success. Some may think it is a little unrealistic to have Bowe and Lloyd both on the same team with the situation the Chiefs are in with Bowe's contract, but they definitely have the cap space, and why not? If it will help them win, then they must do it. So what do you think Chiefs fans? Should they sing Brandon Lloyd along with Mcdaniels?
