After a season full of catching bombs, Lloyd dropped one in a conference call Tuesday night following the Pro Bowl announcement. Asked if there's anything he would like to say to San Francisco, Washington and Chicago, teams that let him go, Lloyd responded with some salty language, then added, "and I mean that in the most professional way."

A day later, Lloyd didn't back off those sentiments, but vowed to keep his words a little cleaner.
