Brandon Lloyd reportedly on trading block

According to Mike Klis, the Broncos are looking to move WR Brandon Lloyd, with Carolina and Tennessee reportedly among the three or four teams showing interest. Denver is reportedly seeking a draft choice in the third-to-fifth-round range in return for Lloyd, who is playing out the final year of his contract and is making a relatively meager $1.395M this season for a player of his skill and production levels. The trade deadline is Tuesday, and apparently the Broncos and Lloyd's representatives have discussed a contract extension but have not been close to any agreement. Denver is expecting to have their full complement of receivers available for their next game, including Eddie Royal (who is also unsigned beyond this year) and Demaryius Thomas. Are the Broncos setting Tim Tebow up for failure by possibly dealing away the best pair of hands on the team? We'll have to wait and see...
