The veteran member of the Chargers’ receiving corps and the team’s 2012 offensive player of the year, Floyd had a major scare early in the 2013 season when he had to leave Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia in an ambulance as result of a hit following a catch over the middle.

Biography

The Chargers’ Most Inspirational Player and Ed Block Courage Award winner, Malcom Floyd’s accomplishments in 2014 were nothing short of remarkable.

Less than a year removed from a neck injury that caused him to be taken away on a stretcher from Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, Floyd returned with a vengeance. He started all 16 games for the first time in his career, while tying his career high and leading the team in receiving yards.

For some, the injury could have been career-ending, but Floyd was determined to re-join his teammates and he started his rehab the day after he got hurt. It started with walking laps in his back yard, then progressed to exercising with rubber therapy bands, and before long he was riding an exercise bike to maintain his cardiovascular conditioning. Assured by doctors that he could return to football, Floyd rejoined his teammates in March 2014 for the team’s offseason conditioning program of running, lifting and training.

One of the things that kept Floyd motivated during his rehab was the support he received from teammates. Besides messages of encouragement, some of the team’s younger players like Keenan Allen and Steve Williams spent time at Floyd’s house, playing video games and keeping him company.

Floyd is now looking forward to 2015, which he has hinted could be his final NFL season. It’s been a fantastic run for a player who joined the Chargers 12 years ago as an undrafted rookie from the University of Wyoming.

The eighth-leading receiver in franchise history with 4,989 yards, Floyd needs just 11 more to reach 5,000 for his career. His 291 catches rank 10th in franchise history, while his 31 touchdowns rank 11th.

Even though Floyd caught Philip Rivers’ first touchdown pass back in 2004, he didn’t become a mainstay in the Chargers’ lineup until 2008. Since that time though, his 17.4 yards-per-catch average is the NFL’s second highest. Only DeSean Jackson (17.7) has had a higher average than Floyd over the last seven seasons. And his 17.1-yard career average dating to 2004 is the team’s fourth highest.

Floyd averaged 16.5-yards per catch in 2014, fifth-highest in the NFL. It included a career-long 59-yard catch against Baltimore and five catches of 40 or more yards, tied for 10th-most in the league.

Floyd performed a rather impressive feat in 2011 when he led the league in average yards per catch (19.9). That season, 41 of his 43 catches went for first downs. The 95.3 percent clip was the second-highest in NFL history (min. 32 catches). Only Henry Ellard, who totaled 71 first downs on 74 catches (95.9%) for Washington in 1994, posted a higher percentage. Floyd’s first 23 catches of the season all went for first downs and his first catch that didn’t result in a first down wasn’t until Dec. 11. 

A native of Sacramento, California, Floyd’s mother, Leataata, still resides there. She volunteers as a mentor, tutor, counselor and ambassador who teaches Polynesian dancing at one of the city’s poorest schools. In 2012, the Sacramento Unified School District paid tribute to her by changing the name of the school from Jedediah Smith Elementary to Leataata Floyd Elementary.

Floyd’s older brother, Malcolm, also was an NFL wide receiver. He spent time with the Houston Oilers, Tennessee Titans and St. Louis Rams in the mid 1990s. The elder Floyd is now the head football coach at C.K. McClatchy High School in Sacramento.

Floyd and his wife, Daphne, have three children. When he retires from the NFL, Floyd looks forward to being a full-time father and watching his kids grow up and play sports. He also has his eyes on graduate school with hopes of someday becoming a doctor or biomedical engineer. For now, Floyd enjoys playing basketball and spending time playing with Daphne and the kids.
