The (1-4) Denver Broncos have dealt Pro-Bowl wide receiver Brandon Lloyd to the winless (0-5) St. Louis Rams. Denver will get a conditional pick in next year’s draft in return for Lloyd.

The move comes a week after Tim Tebow supplanted Kyle Orton at quarterback for the Broncos, and just six days before Tebow’s first start at Miami, he’s lost one of his top targets to make instant success even more difficult to obtain.

In St. Louis, Lloyd will reunited with former Broncos coach Josh McDaniel’s who is now the Rams’ offensive coordinator. He will also provide Sam Bradford with a much-needed downfield threat and legitimate pass catching option, as former Red Raider and Rams #1 wide-out Danny Amendola is done for the season.

Lloyd is in the final year of his current deal making around $1.4 million, which is a bargain for a player who led the league in receiving yards last year with 1,448, on 77 catches, with 11 of them going for touchdowns.

His numbers are down this year with 19 catches for a team-high 283 yards and no touchdowns. That could however be attributed to quarterback play Denver’s received from Orton and Tebow this year.
