49ers WR Brandon Lloyd goes from zombie movie back to NFL

June 11, 2014 - 12:27 PM

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The San Francisco 49ers are hoping a player who spent last season acting in a zombie movie instead of playing football can provide a needed upgrade to what was once a thin receiving corps.

Brandon Lloyd is showing in the first few weeks of off-season workouts in his second stint in San Francisco that he might be able to fill that role and give the Niners another receiving threat to test Super Bowl champion Seattle's vaunted secondary.

Lloyd has been one of the big bright spots of the off-season so far for the 49ers, making the same type of highlight-reel catches that made him one of the league's most productive receivers before taking a sabbatical last season to star in a direct-to-DVD zombie movie titled "After Effect."
