Ex-49ers and Broncos WR Brandon Lloyd is retiring after 13 years in the league.
So ends one of the stranger careers of the 21st century. A 2003 fourth-round pick, Lloyd was a journeyman until exploding for 1,448 yards for the Broncos in 2010. Even that couldn't stop him from bouncing around, however. Lloyd spent 2013 out of the league before appearing in 14 games for the 49ers last season. Lloyd was talented, but mercurial, and had a reputation for being a bit of a locker room lawyer. He turned 34 earlier this year. Thu, Oct 22, 2015 01:32:00 PM

Free agent WR Brandon Lloyd is not expected to re-sign with the 49ers.

Lloyd played just 24.7 snaps per game for the Niners in 2014, totaling 14 catches all year. Now 33, he'll find a very cold market come March. If he can't latch on to an NFL roster, we know the Zombie Film industry will have him back after his standout performance in "After Effect."

Brandon Lloyd caught one pass for 14 yards in the 49ers' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Lloyd finished his return season to the 49ers with 14 receptions for 294 yards and one touchdown. He primarily served in a situational perimeter receiver role behind Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, and Stevie Johnson. Lloyd, 33, may be done as an NFL player. He is ticketed for offseason free agency.

49ers declared WR Brandon Lloyd, T Anthony Davis, NT Glenn Dorsey, TE Vance McDonald, CB Tramaine Brock, QB Josh Johnson, and S Ray Ventrone inactive for Week 14 against the Raiders.

Lloyd appears to have been benched for ineffectiveness.

Brandon Lloyd caught 1-of-6 targets for six yards Week 13 against the Seahawks.

It was an inefficient night for Lloyd, but it was hardly his fault. Kaepernick could not hit the broadside of a barn on Thursday night, missing badly while targeting Lloyd multiple times including on the first interception of the game. The good news is Lloyd saw an expanded role with Michael Crabtree sidelined for a time with a rib injury, and he would appear to be the wide receiver of choice in two-wide sets if Crabtree is forced to miss any time.

Brandon Lloyd (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 10.

Lloyd was limited in practice throughout the week and is shaping up as a game-time decision. Steve Johnson would play in all three-wide sets if Lloyd is held out.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 07:30:00 PM

Brandon Lloyd caught his lone target for an 80-yard touchdown in the 49ers' Week 6 win over the Rams.

Lloyd roasted Janoris Jenkins, running right by him for the long touchdown with 14 seconds left in the first half. He has just seven catches on the season, however, making him nothing more than waiver-wire fodder in fantasy.
Tue, Oct 14, 2014 12:23:00 AM

Brandon Lloyd caught 3-of-5 targets for 76 yards in the 49ers' Week 5 win over the Chiefs.

Lloyd doubled his catch and yardage totals with the effort. The highlight was an unbelievable fourth-quarter grab where Lloyd skied over CB Sean Smith for a 29-yard reception. Lloyd's ridiculous body control is alive and well, but he obviously remains off the fantasy radar with only six catches through five games.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 08:10:00 PM

Brandon Lloyd is inactive for Sunday night's Week 2 game against the Bears.

Lloyd is a healthy scratch after being held without a catch last week. The 49ers will go with Stevie Johnson and Bruce Ellington in four-wide sets. The rest of the inactives are WR Quinton Patton, RT Anthony Davis, QB Josh Johnson, CB Tramaine Brock, C Marcus Martin, and DT Demarcus Dobbs.
Sun, Sep 14, 2014 07:28:00 PM

Targeted only once, Brandon Lloyd was held without a catch in San Francisco's Week 1 win over the Cowboys.

Lloyd appeared to be running ahead of Stevie Johnson for No. 3 duties, but ended up catching two fewer passes. The 49ers seem to value Lloyd's veteran presence and sure hands, but he's not going to receive nearly enough looks to put him in the fantasy conversation.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 08:21:00 PM

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, there's a "real good chance" Brandon Lloyd cracks the 49ers' 53-man roster.

Per Rapsheet, the mercurial Lloyd is "fitting in," and has "bonded" with Anquan Boldin. Lloyd would be no better than the 49ers' No. 4 receiver, but is sounding like he could be a nice piece of depth one year after sitting out of the league. Lloyd has no fantasy value.

49ers WR Brandon Lloyd will miss 1-2 weeks with an undisclosed injury.

Coach Jim Harbaugh said Lloyd is on a similar timeline to Michael Crabtree, whose injury is also undisclosed. The San Jose Mercury news says both injuries "are believed to be leg related." While Crabtree is an obvious roster lock, Lloyd isn't and could use the practice reps after sitting out all of 2013.
Fri, Aug 1, 2014 03:16:00 PM

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows said WR Brandon Lloyd has been the 49ers' "most consistently productive receiver" this offseason.

Colin Kaepernick agrees, saying Lloyd has almost always been "open by a step or two." Lloyd does not appear to have much rust after sitting out an entire season, but already 33 and with little to no value on special teams, Lloyd's roster spot is still anything but secure. Continued stellar practice play like this will go a long way to solidifying his spot on the 49ers' roster.
Tue, Jul 29, 2014 08:41:00 PM

Coach Jim Harbaugh said he's "seeing really good things" out of Brandon Lloyd so far.

We believe Harbaugh was referring to Lloyd's on-field play at OTAs, not his role in the 2013 zombie film, After Effect. The 32-year-old might be able to provide the 49ers with some acrobatic red-zone punch, but he's a longshot for the final roster no matter how well he plays. Since signing Lloyd, the 49ers have traded for Stevie Johnson and drafted Bruce Ellington.

Brandon Lloyd's one-year deal with the 49ers includes no guaranteed money.

He can earn a $50,000 workout bonus and has a scheduled $955,000 base salary, which would come directly off San Francisco's books were Lloyd released before Week 1. At age 33 and having been out of football for an entire year, Lloyd is probably a long shot for a 2014 roster spot. His odds would grow even longer if the 49ers used an early-round pick on a vertical wide receiver.
