The Chargers tested WR Malcom Floyd, even though they've employed him since 2004. In all five practices open to the media, the first pass from Philip Rivers went to Floyd. He was typically the most-targeted pass-catcher, and won more than he lost.
No one tackled him, but Chargers defenders went hard at the 6-foot-5 receiver, who was practicing for the first time since the neck injury suffered last September in Philadelphia.
Floyd can't wait for the season to start to make catches that count. He's ranked 55th, but he's climbing our charts and will battle with Vincent Brown for the WR2 spot across from Keenan Allen. Brown wasn't impressive last year so we think Floyd has a chance to win this job.
