The receiver re-signed with San Diego after heavy speculation pegged him in Baltimore with the Ravens. Speculate no more, Floyd is a Charger.
The big hole at the Chargers No. 2 wide receiver spot will be filled by the same guy who held the role last year.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune and Adam Schefter of ESPN report that Floyd will return to the Chargers on a two-year deal. We thought Floyd was easily the best wideout left on the market, and the Ravens showed strong interest in him and looked like the favorites to land him. (UPDATE: Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun said the Ravens struggled to clear cap room.)
With Floyd in the fold opposite Vincent Jackson, Patrick Crayton and Vincent Brown figure to battle for the No. 3 receiver job.
Well I guess there are two things that need to be said. One, look out AFC West, the San Diego Chargers are looking very dangerous right now. Two, just goes to show you what a great quarterback can do for your team.
I'm sure that a huge factor for Floyd was the fact that his numbers may have been inflated due to the magnificence of Philip Rivers. Going to Baltimore, he would've been catching passes from a far less talented, far less risk-taking quarterback Joe Flacco.
In San Diego, Floyd will most likely reprise his No. 2 wide receiver role behind Vincent Jackson. However, he will play more like a No. 3 receiver because of the talented Antonio Gates.
Gates, Jackson and Floyd form one of the most intimidating receiving corps in the NFL, and they have a quarterback who can sling it.
San Diego, rejoice. Malcom Floyd is back!
