We told you a couple days ago about the Broncos supposed desire to trade receiver Brandon Lloyd, in part because of Denver’s apparent move toward a ball-control, run-oriented offense under new starting quarterback Tim Tebow.
Now, it’s beginning to appear like a fire sale, as CBS Sports' Charley Casserly reported on The NFL Today that Eddie Royal is also on the trading block for Denver.
"Both [receivers] are in the last year of their contract," Casserly said Sunday. "Four teams -- I've been told by one of these four teams -- are interested: San Francisco, New England, Tennessee and St. Louis.
"Another team told me that Denver said one of the reasons they're trying to move Lloyd is he's had some confrontations with the coaching staff."
Considering both are in the final year of their respective deals, it might make sense for Denver to get rid of them if they’re not in the team’s long-term plans.
As CBSSports.com’s Will Brinson wrote the other day, Lloyd apparently is being pursued by the Rams and the Titans (but not the Panthers), though it’s looking less likely Denver will move him before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. trade deadline. Royal, by the way, has only played two games this year, and he’s got four catches for 51 yards.
