Floyd (6-5, 225) is a seventh-year wide receiver in his seventh year with the Chargers.
Malcom Floyd was all smiles when he returned to the Chargers with a new two-year contract following the NFL lockout of 2011. Unfortunately, the smiles dissipated as the ’11 season’s script unfolded, following a familiar and frustrating pattern of events for Floyd. He was off to a solid start in 2011 with a couple of 100-yard games against the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs. However, in the Chiefs game on Halloween night, Floyd aggravated a hip injury that forced him to the sidelines for the next four games. The Chargers were 4-3 when Floyd got hurt, but lost all four of the games he missed. When he finally returned for an early Dec. game in Jacksonville, the Chargers had fallen to 4-7 and were barely alive in the AFC Playoff hunt. Not surprisingly, the Chargers went 4-1 with Floyd back in the lineup. Despite the setbacks, Floyd still managed to post impressive numbers in 2011. He caught 43 passes with 41 resulting in first downs, a 95.3 pct. clip that was highest in the NFL. His 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.
Floyd totaled a career-high 856 yards to go along with five touchdowns and his career-best 19.9-yard average was the highest in the league among players with more than 800 yards receiving. It was also the ninth highest in team history among players with at least 40 catches. Floyd had at least 95 yards and a touchdown in four of the Chargers’ last five games last season and he’ll look to carry that momentum into the 2012 season. A deep-ball threat with a measured vertical leap of more than three feet (40 inches) Floyd became a mainstay in the Chargers’ offensive lineup in 2008. Since then, he’s caught 152 passes for 2,814 yards and his 18.5-yard average is third in the NFL behind only Mike Wallace (18.7) and Victor Cruz (18.7).
Floyd’s older brother, Malcolm, played wide receiver for the Houston Oilers, Tennessee Titans and St. Louis Rams in the mid ’90s and is now the head football coach at C.K. McClatchy High School in Sacramento, Calif. Floyd enjoys playing basketball, riding jet skis and spending time with family, friends and teammates. An all-conference hoopster in high school, Floyd’s team won an intramural championship while he was in college at Wyoming. Floyd and his wife, Daphne, have two sons, Maiu and Malc.
When the new collective bargaining agreement took shape in late July, it appeared as though unrestricted free agent Malcom Floyd was headed out of Southern California after seven seasons in San Diego. But after exploring several options, Floyd decided to return to the Chargers, inking a new two-year deal on August 5.
The consummate pro both on and off the field, Floyd’s game seems to reach new heights every year.
A deep-ball threat with a measured vertical leap of more than three feet (40 inches) Floyd often comes up with any ball he leaves his feet to catch. Last season his 19.4 yards per catch average ranked fourth in the NFL. That ability to make plays downfield led one former teammate to christen him with the nickname “M-80.”
The high point of Floyd’s 2010 campaign was a 213-yard performance in the Chargers’ October game at Oakland. It tied for the fourth-best single-game performance in team history and was the most yards in a game by a Chargers receiver since 1985. Floyd’s effort against the Raiders included a 41-yard touchdown catch and a teamrecord 154 yards in the first half.
It took a while, but Floyd finally earned a chance to start for the Chargers in 2009 and he set career-highs in catches and yards. He averaged a whopping 17.2 yards per catch, tied with teammate Vincent Jackson for the second-highest average in the NFL.
Floyd is the second NFL wide receiver in the family. His older brother, Malcolm, played wide receiver for the Houston Oilers, Tennessee Titans and St. Louis Rams in the mid ’90s.
Floyd’s hobbies include playing basketball, riding jet skis and spending time with family, friends and teammates. He was an all-conference basketball player in high school and his team won an intramural championship while he was in college at Wyoming.
