There has been a lot of speculation that Rams receiver Brandon Lloyd could reunite with his former coach Josh McDaniels in New England.

Appearing on PFT Live Monday, Lloyd did nothing to dampen that speculation.

“I find that very interesting. I would like to entertain that and see where that goes. I’ve made no bones about that,” Lloyd said. “I’ve been very successful in Josh’s offense. I admire Tom Brady. I admire what that organization has done. I admire that organization and how they run things over there. I’d definitely be interested in hearing how I could possibly fit into that equation.”

Earlier in the interview, Lloyd said that playing in McDaniels’ offense was his key to finally achieving success in the NFL. Lloyd says that he runs a much bigger route tree under McDaniels than he ever did before.

It doesn’t appear the Rams have any interest in placing the franchise tag on Lloyd, although Lloyd said that wouldn’t be a problem.

“A pay raise is always welcomed,” Lloyd said.

He also said “of course” the Rams have a chance to sign him before he even hits free agency. Lloyd expects talks to begin later this week.

St. Louis likely has some level of interest in retaining Lloyd, but we’d be very surprised if Lloyd didn’t wind up hitting the open market.
