NFL wide receiver Brandon Lloyd was instrumental in my fantasy football team winning the regular season and championship game in the 2010/11 season. Lloyd (31-years-old) did an outstanding job of taking his mediocre career to new heights playing 16 games with 77 receptions, 11 touchdowns, and 1,448 receiving yards with the Denver Broncos that year. Since then, he has been traded to the St. Louis Rams. He also picked up a new agent.
Lloyd, now a free agent, is represented by Tom Condon of Creative Artists Agency (CAA). He was formerly represented by David Dunn of Athletes First. This is a situation of a player switching from one major agency to another powerhouse. Interestingly, Condon is based in the same city as Lloyd’s most recent employer – St. Louis, Missouri.
There is a lot of chatter about Lloyd being a good fit with the New England Patriots, where the offensive coordinator is Josh McDaniels, who was head coach of the Broncos during Lloyd’s best year of his career to date. However, Condon and the Patriots have not always gotten along. In 2009, Condon stated, “we pretend there are 31 franchises in the NFL now and they pretend we don’t exist, even though we represent 140 of the best players in the NFL. That’s fine.”
