Patriots’ Lloyd: ‘I Feel Like Every Ball Is Catchable’
" FOXBORO (CBS) –  Brandon Lloyd is enjoying his first season with the New England Patriots, but his work is far from done.

Entering his 10th season in the NFL, Lloyd has consistently termed his relationship with quarterback Tom Brady and integration into the Patriots offensive system as “a work in progress.”

“We’ve made good progress,” Lloyd said Monday afternoon following the Patriots 12th Training Camp session.

Lloyd dropped a pass during Monday’s practice session, something that has not happened too often. Lloyd never likes to let one slip through his hands, hauling in 147 catches and 16 touchdowns over the past two seasons.
