Tom Brady Denies Report About Texting Deion Branch, Brandon Lloyd To Gauge Availability
" FOXBORO (CBS) — The Patriots looked like they needed some receiving help in their Week 2 win over the Jets, and a report Sunday morning said that Tom Brady was turning to some old friends.

NFL ’s Michael Silver and Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that the quarterback has been “calling & texting Deion Branch and Brandon Lloyd, gauging their availability.”

However, following the Patriots’ 23-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady denied reaching out to the former Pats receivers.

“No, I haven’t talked to those guys in a while,” Brady said. “I love both of them, they’re good friends and great teammates but I haven’t talked to either one of them in a while.”

Rapoport tweeted early Sunday that “Deion Branch has told Tom Brady he’s ready whenever, hanging in Kentucky. Brandon Lloyd isn’t yet. But he is acting in zombie movies.”

The last comment is in reference to Lloyd’s latest career venture, acting in a straight-to-DVD film titled “After Effect,” which stars Daniel Baldwin (plenty of more info on that film is right here). Last season, in his one year in New England, Lloyd had 74 receptions for 911 yards and four touchdowns.

Meanwhile Branch, 34, remains a free agent "
