ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos receiver Brandon Lloyd's profanity has attracted more attention than all his acrobatic catches that earned him his first trip to the Pro Bowl.
Humble all season about his breakout performance, the eighth-year wideout took the chance to castigate those teams who failed to bring out his talent.
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.
