Just making it back from last year's career-threatening neck injury is enough to celebrate Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd. But he has apparently come back as a player with something to prove.
Tom Krasovic of U-T San Diego wrote Monday that Floyd would have been his choice for spring MVP -- if such an award existed. Krasovic said Floyd's spring "was as good as spring can be." Philip Rivers targeted him often in practices, and Floyd "won more than he lost."
Floyd is more important to the Chargers than fantasy owners. They need his speed and length to complement possession receivers such as Keenan Allen and tight end Antonio Gates . Floyd, 33 in September, has never topped 900 yards in any of his 10 NFL seasons. He is a great example of perseverance. Everyone should be rooting for him, just not drafting him.
