49ers Bring Back Brandon Lloyd


After one season out of the NFL, Brandon Lloyd is back for a second tour with the team that drafted him 11 years ago.

The 49ers have signed the 32-year-old Lloyd to a one-year contract, the club said Tuesday.

In San Francisco, Lloyd would likely contend for a complementary role in the receiving corps. Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin are the 49ers’ top targets at wideout, with Vernon Davis one of the game’s top tight ends.
