One of the biggest offseason question marks for the Chargers this year appears to be resolved and ready for 2014. Malcom Floyd, M80, is expected to be on the field for the Bolts this year. After a vicious shot against the Eagles in week 2 of last season, Floyd hasn’t been on the field, and his future has very much been in question (see below).
This is great news for the Chargers. With Keenan Allen breaking out last season, the offense needed weapons to take potential double coverage away from the young star. Danario Alexander’s problematic knee and Eddie Royal’s contract situation left the wide receiver position looking thin for the Chargers after the playoff loss. While Alexander likely won’t be back in San Diego, Royal has restructured, and alongside Vincent Brown, the Bolts have some serious weapons.
Floyd’s big frame is a perfect compliment to the budding star Allen. Allen excels at route running, getting separation, and making acrobatic catches. Floyd will be the reliable big target to compliment Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green on the outside. This is great news for the Chargers.
Floyd, who was named Malcom by his brother and fellow NFL wide out, Malcolm, spells his name differently than his brother, but will be happy to carry on the family name at the wide receiver position. Glad to have you back M80!
