New England Patriots' OC happily reunited with Brandon Lloyd

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has a lot to look forward to this season -- beyond working with quarterback Tom Brady -- he's been reunited with Brandon Lloyd, a receiver he's been able to coax production from better than anyone else.

"He understands what we ask of the receiver position," McDaniels said according to the New England Sports Network. "He's brought a skillset on the outside, on the perimeter that has definitely been helpful to the offenses that I've had a part in here in the last few years. How he fits in and what we end up doing with him along with the other receiving corps, we'll kind of find out as we go through the spring and the summer. But I'm excited to have an opportunity to coach him again."

Lloyd had his best season in 2010 while McDaniels was the head coach of the Denver Broncos, hauling in 77 passes for 11 touchdowns and 1,448 yards. Midway through last season the wideout was traded to the St. Louis Rams, where McDaniels was the offensive coordinator, and made 51 receptions for five touchdowns and 683 yards in 11 games.

In his best season without McDaniels, he caught 48 passes for five touchdowns and 733 yards with the San Francisco 49ers in 2005. Lloyd has also spent time with the Washington Redskins and Chicago Bears.
