With receiver Malcom Floyd on track for the first 1,000-yard season of his nine-year career, the Chargers have taken steps to keep him around for at least three more seasons.

The Chargers have announced that Floyd has signed a three-year extension.  He’s under contract through 2015.

Floyd actually became an unrestricted free agent in 2011, but he re-signed with the Chargers, inking a two-year deal.  He was due to earn a base salary of $2 million in 2012.

This year, Floyd has 13 catches for 227 yards and a touchdown.

  1. Im sure this was more of a restructuring in an attempt to open up some cap, which the chargers have very little of. Malcom is an above average (height and skill) wr, one of “AJs guys” – stays out of trouble, doesn’t complain to the press about his contract situation etc. That being said, he’s on the tail end of his career, highly doubt he’s on anyone’s roster in 2015.

    M80 – 170 catches, 3,043 yds, 18YPC

  2. Floyd has had trouble staying healthy…
    and of course he also had to play in the
    shadow of Vincent Jackson (and still, Gates).

    But when he’s healthy, he is spectacular:
    great routes, and will find a way to catch
    passes that 95% of the league’s receivers
    can’t bring in. A good extension.

  3. Highly underrated wide receiver, too bad VJ overshadowed him for so many years. Floyd is something special when healthy, smart move by A.J. Smith for once. (Why he couldn’t do this to other players that left) (I have no clue)

  4. He’s a great receiver. He makes catches that maybe only two or three of the other top receivers in the league can make. And he does so without saying a single thing.

    Too bad he’s not going to be able to catch many passes while Rivers is running for his life.

    The non-existent O-line will have the Chargers watching the playoffs from home. Again.

  5. I think this is a good step for Floyd and deserving. He has done nothing but play when he can. Has never complained about contracts or playing time. Good for him!
