Brandon Lloyd Picks Acting Over NFL
The above video is a trailer for After Effect, a straight-to-DVD zombie movie (on Walmart shelves October 8th) starring Daniel Baldwin and Brandon Lloyd.
Yup, that Brandon Lloyd. Rather than seek employment with an NFL team, the former First Team All-Big Ten wide receiver at Illinois — who the New England Patriots released in March — is pursuing an acting career. In the aforementioned After Effect, he plays a cop named ... Sgt. Lloyd (no joke).
We can imagine members of the Patriots brass watching this clip and thinking, “We should of just kept him.” They could certainly use a wide receiver right now. Brandon Lloyd profile
