The Bears Should NOT Trade for Denver WR Brandon Lloyd

CSN Chicago asks the question “Should the Bears Trade for Brandon Lloyd?”  My answer is simple – HELL NO!

If you watched last Monday night’s fiasco, you saw the multitude of holes up and down the Chicago Bears roster.   This is a stretch, but I am hoping/praying that Jerry Angelo will not be pulling the trigger on draft day 2012.  Rumors have swirled that he’s been thinking about retiring?  Maybe Ted Phillips let’s him save face and “retire” or maybe George McCaskey grows a pair and gets rid of the whole management team including Angelo.

If – and I know it’s a big IF – Jerry is watching the draft from his couch, it’s possible that a draft pick could actually be worth something.  I’m not sure what the asking price for a Brandon Lloyd would be, but if it’s higher than a 4th round pick, I’m not touching it with a 10 foot pole.

Don’t forget, Lloyd spent a year here in Chicago not that long ago in 2008.  In the 11 games he appeared in, he had 26 catches for 364 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Sure, Jay Cutler is a big upgrade in the quarterback, but I just don’t see Lloyd as anything more than a Band-Aid to try to help Angelo save his skin and his job.  I’d like to know what you think.  Vote below and post your comments in, uh well, the Comments section.

    You need to know nothing else about why Brandon Lloyd should NEVER AGAIN be on the Bears…

    They should trade Roy Williams… He is supposedly worth 70-80 catches a year, right? He is obviously not being utilized by Cutler.

    Nice idea, but there’s one problem – they couldn’t get ANYTHING for that worthless BUM. Seriously, they couldn’t get a conditional 7th rounder for that piece of garbage. After this season, you’re most likely to see Roy Williams marking first downs as a part of the chain gang on the sidelines of Pee Wee football games.@vrquinton

    @BearGogglesOn@vrquinton Boom – I think you are giving Williams entirely too much credit. I don’t think he’s capable of working on the chain gang.

    Brandon Marshall YES(although not going to happen, we blew that once)..NOT Brandon Llyod. I can only hope next season brings a #1 WR somehow….someway. Being an MSU grad I think BJ Cunningham from Michigan State could be a threat and fit into late 2nd round..although he is not fast, he goes up and gets it. Bears already have speed. If the Bears totally blow this season maybe Blackmon from Oklahoma State could be in their future ( I HOPE!)

    If I was Jerry (if he’s still around, hopefully not) I would take a #1 CB as well to replace an awesome albeit aging Peanut Tillman to cover the growing threats of Calvin Johnson, Greg Jennings, and Percy Harvin. Tillman has substantially toned down the #1 WR of the NFC North (see an old highlight film of him blowing up Randy Moss), but he’s unfortunately losing it (see Calvin getting some easy catches recently).

    If we can get him for like a 5th or 4th round pick, take a shot.

    He’s better than anything Angelo could hope to get for those picks.

    well considering he had 1500 recieving yards last year, i’m gonna venture to say he’s a bit more valuable than a 4th rounder. Also, we got a lot of holes, but we also have the legit worst receiving core in the nfl.
