Lloyd’s contract is a reported 3 years for $12 million, which is an absolute steal. Consider that Robert Meachem’s contract was 4 years for $26 million, so at the outset, it looks like the Patriots got amazing value. Over the last two seasons, Lloyd has racked up 291 targets, caught about 50% of them with 16.4 yards per catch and 2.3 YAC per reception. No receiver has caught more balls thrown 20+ yards in the air than Lloyd (30 of said catches)..... As for deep routes (20+ yards downfield), Patriots receivers had just 9 receptions for 348 yards last season. Lloyd had 13 receptions for 363 yards alone. Last year, he averaged one drop every 16 targets, which was about league average. He did average a target per every 5.29 snaps, which we can expect to go down. Lloyd has also had 30 redzone targets thrown his way over the last 2 years, and caught 9 of those for TDs. For comparison’s sake, in the same span, Greg Jennings (an arbitrary top-caliber WR) had 33 redzone targets for 11 TDs, so Lloyd’s percentages compare favorably.
