On Wednesday we reported that the Patriots (and other teams) have reached out to receiver Brandon Lloyd about playing in 2013. Lloyd who gained 911 yards in 2012 with New England consistently has declined explaining that he’s not mentally or physically ready to play.

On Thursday our friend (not sarcasm) Mike Silver of NFL Network (i.e. the rebel who now works for the man) dropped trou and took a dump on the report contending that the Patriots “never called” Lloyd.

So we double-checked and we learned that yes the Patriots did call about Lloyd. It was a while ago but it happened.
