49ers pursue Malcom Floyd

Jason LaCanfora reports that free agent wide receiver Malcom Floyd may decide to sign with the 49ers today. He’s choosing between them, San Diego, Carolina, Baltimore, and Arizona.

Floyd will be 30 years old this season. He’s six-foot-five, which would make him the 49ers tallest receiver if he signs.

Floyd has played for San Diego his entire professional career, dating back to 2004. The last two seasons with the Chargers he’s caught 82 passes for 1,493 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Floyd would seemingly be a perfect fit for the 49ers, who need another wide receiver, preferably a big and tall one. Floyd fits the description.

If Baalke signs Floyd the day after signing Carlos Rogers, you’d have to conclude the 49ers really aren’t “rebuilding” this year. With Rogers and Floyd and perhaps a new center, the 49ers could be back in the hunt for the playoffs in 2011.
