Could this Malcolm be the Ravens "X"?

Some have suggested that the Ravens direct their attention towards acquiring Chargers’ wide receiver Malcolm Floyd. Floyd is a big-bodied receiver (6’5”, 225 pounds) who has averaged 16.5 yard per catch during his career. The career Charger is coming off his best season as a pro during which he caught 45 balls for 776 yards (17.2 avg.) and 1 TD.

But let’s put an asterisk next to these stats.

Floyd had the luxury of playing in a more prolific offense led by MVP candidate Philip Rivers than he would in Baltimore. Moreover, he wasn’t exactly the top priority of opposing defensive coordinators who were forced to deal with top end pass receiving threats like Antonio Gates and Vincent Jackson.

Floyd would be a solid addition but let’s not get too carried away thinking that he could be the answer to that prototypical No. 1 target that has eluded the grasps of Newsome. That said he at least would give the Ravens a different look with that big body and his ability to stretch a defense.

.. I remember reading about FLOYD in the papers. He looks like he could solve one problem.. he is the Receiver that Demetrius Williams was supposed to be. ONLY, Floyd has 4 years Exp..and is the Real Deal. We still need a burner..
How bout a look at MARDY GILYARD from the CINNCINNATII Team?

Not familiar enough with Floyd, but from the looks of him, he could be one answer to the receivers puzzle........
