Amidst the feeding frenzy that is NFL free agency 2011, rumors are swirling as to where former Wyoming Cowboy and current San Diego Charger wide reciever Malcom Floyd will land.
Floyd is an unrestricted free agent, and his current team has showed little interest in resigning him. Which begs the question, “Where will Malcom Floyd be catching passes this season?”
Four potential suitors have been connected to the 6′ 5″ receiver, the Minnesota Vikings, the St. Louis Rams, the San Fransisco 49ers, and the Arizona Cardinals.
Reporter Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune orignially noted that he was “hearing” the front runners in the race for Floyd were the Cardinals or the Vikings. Though Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic tweeted that the Cardinals “are not showing interest in Floyd”.
It has also been reported by Chris Wesseling of Rotoworld.com that the Rams have showed interest in the receiver.
The 49ers have recently jumped into the converstation by expressing interest in aquiring Floyd.
Floyd would be a terrific fit in Minnesota, as he would provide a replacement as a deep threat receiver with the departure of Sydney Rice to the Seahawks.
The former Wyoming Cowboy cemented himself as a productive receiver and a starter for the Chargers for the last two years. In just 11 games last season Floyd caught 37 passes for 717 yards and 6 touchdowns, and averaged almost 20 yards per catch.
