Chargers TE Antonio Gates had high praise for WR Malcolm Floyd, who hasn’t played a full 16-game schedule since 2009.
"To me, he's probably the most underrated receiver in this league," tight end Antonio Gates said. "I think guys who play against him have more respect for him than the media, than people give him credit for."
Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union Tribune also notes that over the past 16 games in which Floyd played more than 35 snaps, he caught 63 passes for 1,211 yards and nine touchdowns. Among all qualified wide receivers with at least 50 games played since 2008 writes Gehlken, Floyd leads the NFL with 18.5 yards per reception.
