1:36PM ET - According to Schefter, all that it would take for the pick to move up from a sixth-rounder to a fifth-rounder in 2012 is that Lloyd catch 30 passes for the Rams over the remainder of the season. Obviously, this is a highly attainable and likely threshold, and it puts the trade in a much better light.
1:08PM ET - Mort says the Broncos will receive a conditional pick from St. Louis that will come in either the fifth or sixth round of the 2012 Draft depending upon how many receptions Lloyd tallies with the Rams.

12:07PM ET - Gregg Rosenthal is speculating that the Rams would be giving Lloyd a contract extension, else why would an 0-5 team be trading for a player on the last year of his contract.

11:37AM ET - It appears Tim Tebow will be without the best pair of hands on the Broncos when he makes his first start of the season Sunday in Miami. Mike Klis is reporting that WR Brandon Lloyd was told not to report today for practice, and that he's most likely headed to the Rams to be reunited with former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels, who is currently the OC in St. Loo.
Meanwhile, the Raiders have reportedly contacted the agents for QBs David Garrard and Josh McCown about potentially replacing Jason Campbell, who is out for the year after breaking his collarbone in yesterday's win over the Browns.
