Floyd Happy to Still Be a Charger

Malcom Floyd was a restricted free agent until he signed a new one-year contract or tender with the Chargers on Friday.

"I'm happy that's over with," Floyd said. 

Floyd returned to the practice field with the Chargers on Monday for their first of 14 OSC's, or off-season coaching sessions. 

"He didn't miss a beat," quarterback Philip Rivers said. "Malcom made a few of those incredible catches you see once or twice a practice."

That included a long touchdown pass thrown by backup quarterback Billy Volek that brought back memories of last season, when Floyd had a career year with 27 catches for 465 yards and four touchdowns.  His season ended prematurely when he suffered a collapsed lung in week 15 against the Chiefs. Floyd has put that in the past but expects to be used even more in the future.

"Coach Norv [Turner] knows what he's doing," Floyd said. "I'm just listening to the man."

For now, just being back with the guys for these extra practices will do.

"I'm thrilled to be back, and you have no idea how much," Floyd added. "I had trouble sleeping last night I was so anxious to get started."

Floyd is hoping this extra work will mean extra catches next season.
