NFL Free Agents 2012: Brandon Lloyd Expected To Visit San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers undoubtably need to improve upon their receiving corps for the upcoming year and they have two legitimate options: free agency and the NFL Draft. While many have the team selecting a WR in the first round, it appears the team is starting to entertain the idea of bringing a big name free agent to the Bay Area. The latest name to be linked to the 49ers? Brandon Lloyd.

Fans may recall that Lloyd reportedly rejected a mid-season trade that would have sent him to San Francisco from Denver before eventually heading to St. Louis. And yes, this is the same Brandon Lloyd that ducks from footballs.

The veteran receiver would certainly be a welcome addition and could provide Alex Smith with another reliable target to throw to outside of Vernon Davis, recently-signed Randy Moss and (potentially) Michael Crabtree. Lloyd has drawn interest from multiple organizations around the league and does not appear incredibly eager to sign, but this will definitely be a story to watch for in the coming days.
