Redskins Release Wide Receiver Lloyd

The Redskins have released wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, the team announced on Tuesday.

Lloyd's two-year stint with the Redskins proved to be a disappointment. He was never able to establish himself in the Redskins' offense.

In March 2006, the Redskins traded a third-round and fourth-round draft pick to the San Francisco 49ers to acquire Lloyd.

At the time, it was thought Lloyd would provide great speed and big-play ability to the Redskins' offense.

He ended up catching just 25 passes for 379 yards and no touchdowns in two seasons in Washington.

Lloyd began the 2007 season as a starter, but he was replaced by Antwaan Randle El and used in a reserve role.

He caught just two passes for 14 yards in eight games last season before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury during a Redskins practice.
