The Ravens are nearing a deal with free agent wide receiver Malcom Floyd. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune reports that Baltimore offered Floyd a deal that tops the $3 million per year that the Chargers were willing to spend on the wide receiver.
On Wednesday, the Chargers signed wide receiver Laurent Robinson, who Acee believes will be Floyd’s replacement as an experienced and “acrobatic” receiver.
Floyd would likely serve as Derrick Mason’s replacement in Baltimore as Mason will likely sign with the New York Jets later today. Mason was to be paid $4.5 million this season and Floyd will likely be paid just above $3 million.
