Patriots will release Brandon Lloyd

According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, the New England Patriots will release wide receiver Brandon Lloyd.

Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd’s tenure with the Patriots has come to an end.

The Pats will release Lloyd, according to a source. It will happen before tomorrow at 4 p.m., when he is scheduled to earn his $3 million option bonus.

With the addition of Danny Amendola and the possibility of them adding another receiver like Emmanuel Sanders, Lloyd is clearly not in their plans.
