Malcom Floyd born September 8, 1981 in Sacramento, California is an American football wide receiver for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League. He was signed by the Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2004. He played college football at Wyoming.

Floyd's career

It took a while, but Malcom Floyd finally earned a chance to start for the Chargers in 2009 and his future looks as bright as his smile. At 6-5, he is one of the league’s tallest receivers and is able to make acrobatic catches look routine. His ability to make plays downfield led one former teammate to christen him with the nickname "M-80."

Floyd set career-highs in catches and yards in ’09 as 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 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.
