In 2004, Floyd was signed by the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted rookie soon after the draft on April 30, 2004. He was waived on September 5 and signed to the practice squad two days later, and then re-signed to the active roster on December 11.
Floyd started against the Kansas City Chiefs on January 2 and caught his first NFL touchdown, a 13 yard pass from Philip Rivers which also happened to be Rivers’s own first career touchdown. Floyd helped set up a second quarter touchdown catch by Ryan Krause with a 27 yard catch down to Chiefs’ 10-yard line, leading to a touchdown three plays later. Floyd played as a back-up in the Wild Card Playoff game against the New York Jets.
In 2005, Floyd was released on September 3 and re-signed to the practice squad two days later. He spent the first 12 weeks of the season on the Chargers’ practice squad. He was then signed to the main roster on December 7 but remained inactive for the rest of the season.
In 2006, Floyd caught a 31-yard touchdown pass against Baltimore, on a play in which Samari Rolle slipped and fell in coverage. He caught a touchdown pass for second time in two weeks with a nine-yard tip-toe catch in the back corner of the end zone against Pittsburgh. Floyd caught a career-long 46-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter of the win against Cincinnati. He was selected as the Chargers Alumni Player of Week following the game in Cincinnati, after substituting for Eric Parker who was out with a neck injury. Floyd left Cincinnati with his first-career 100-yard game, making five catches for 109 yards and a touchdown. He was inactive for Week 13 game against Denver game with an ankle injury. Floyd was placed on injured reserve due to the ankle injury on December 14.
In 2007, Floyd made a 25-yard catch on a 3rd-and-13 play during the opening drive of the second half against Green Bay that helped set up 21-yard touchdown catch-and-run by LaDainian Tomlinson. He helped extend the Chargers' touchdown drive on the opening series of the Week 6 game against the Raiders with a 16-yard catch on 3rd down.
In 2010, he played 11 games with 37 receptions for 717 yards.
Floyd's older brother, Malcolm, played wide receiver for the Houston Oilers from 1994–1997. The older brother was allowed to name his sibling, and he named him after himself—their father introduced the spelling difference.
Floyd's hobbies include playing basketball, boogie boarding at Mission Beach and playing the newest video games. He was also an all-conference basketball player in high school and his team won an intramural championship while he was in college at Wyoming.
