Mike Sims-Walker Released After Brandon Lloyd Trade

Monday, Brandon Lloyd was traded from the Denver Broncos to the St. Louis Rams for a sixth round pick. To make room for Lloyd, the Rams waived the once-heralded Mike Sims-Walker.

Sims-Walker was drafted by the Jaguars in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft and went to become the Jaguars' leader in receptions (63) and receiving yards (869) by 2009. He accumulated 14 touchdowns and 1431 yards receiving in 2009 and 2010 combined.

After the 2010-11 season, the Jags did not re-sign Sims-Walker and signed with the Rams as a free agent. Since then, his career has gone downhill in a hurry. Despite beginning the season as a starter, Sims-Walker has had troubles since getting a case of the dropsies a few weeks back. He wasn't even active this past weekend.

He was barely mentioned in the team's official announcement.

Jaguars fans are wondering if their team should try and re-sign Sims-Walker and hope for a return to glory. It is unknown if Jacksonville has any interest in doing so.

NFL Trade Rumors: Brandon Lloyd Could Be Dealt On Monday

Trade rumors continue to swirl around Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, with the latest reports suggesting he could be gone by Monday afternoon. Rumors about Lloyd's status with the Broncos, and the team's desire to trade him, popped up last week and have persisted throughout Denver's bye week.

According to the Denver Post, the Broncos want to move Lloyd before practice resumes on Monday.

The San Francisco 49ers appear to be showing the strongest interest in the acrobatic receiver, but the New England Patriots and St. Louis Rams also were in discussions, according to two NFL sources.

The trading deadline is 2 p.m. MDT on Tuesday. Given their druthers, the Broncos would like to move Lloyd before practice Monday as they return from their bye week to resume preparations for their next game, Sunday at Miami

At this point, it appears the question isn't if, but when Lloyd will be traded. With a little over 24 hours to make a move, and a self-imposed goal of Monday morning, Lloyd could be on his way out before he reaches the team headquarters following the bye week.
