With Vincent Jackson gone, he's arguably their best receiver so they needed to lock him up. Got him for a bargain price too. Should see fairly good production over the course of his contract.

My main problem with him is he is more of a complementary receiver rather than a #1 guy. Chargers still need to find the successor to Vincent Jackson.

How much have you actually seen him play? Floyd has low-to-mid-end #1 ability the knock on him is that he hasn't played a full 16 game season in his career; he's particularly capable of being a 1b option which is the highest any WR is going to ascend while Antonio Gates is on this team.

Maybe a subject for a different topic, but I think the notion of a "true #1 WR" has gotten horribly skewed these days along with the "necessity" for teams with great QB's have one.


I agree with this. He's much more physical going after the ball then you would expect for a tall, lanky receiver.

Great deal for the Chargers if he can stay healthy...

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

Wyomings Best. Seriously great deal for San Diego. Very underrated reciever.

As others have said great signing by the Chargers. Floyd really is one of their better players on offense.

Malcom Floyd's older brother is named Malcolm Floyd, and he used to play for the Oilers in the mid-90s.

Just thought that was worth pointing out.

Its true. His parents allowed Malcolm to name his brother, and he named him Malcom. Laughing

Haha, thought that might push your buttons. It is an interesting tidbit, but I can imagine Chris Collinsworth's smug voice reciting those lines pretty easily.
