If this guy weren't important, it wouldn't have been a big deal when he took less money to return to San Diego. Malcom Floyd is a big reason for Philip Rivers' success. He has battled injury problems in recent years, but when healthy, the Chargers' pass game is more deadly than ever.
Floyd is 6'5'' and can jump higher than anyone else on the team, at least it looks like. He comes down with balls that only he could catch. The reason he doesn't get the recognition he deserves is because of the injury problems.
During the Chargers' six-game losing streak in 2011, Floyd was injured. Once he returned, his presence was felt, mainly by defensive backs of the opposing team.
Malcom Floyd is a main reason that the Chargers' offense is so explosive, which makes him very important in San Diego.
