We don't usually put much stock in spring puff pieces, but there's been a buzz about Cardinals WR Michael Floyd over the past couple weeks. QB Carson Palmer recently added to that. “The way Mike Floyd is playing just jumped out at me," Palmer said. “I have very high expectations for Mike this year." Floyd broke out for a 65-1,041-5 line last year. Just entering his 3rd NFL season, he's capable of even more in 2014.
Vikings WR Michael Floyd tested positive for alcohol last week, according to TMZ Sports. Floyd, of course, is under house arrest and not allowed to drink after his December DUI arrest. He could now face jail time for the violation. We'll see whether the Vikings decide to hang on to him.
The Vikings signed WR Michael Floyd to a 1-year deal worth $1.5 million. He can reach $6 million total with incentives, per ESPN. Floyd completely tanked on the field in 2016 and was cut from the Cardinals after he was arrested in December for DUI. The 27-year-old ended up serving jail time, and it’s quite possible he’ll receive further discipline from the league. Floyd’s also currently under house arrest and won’t be able to join the Vikings until after June minicamps. In Minnesota, he’ll battle Adam Thielen and Laquon Treadwell for snaps behind #1 Stefon Diggs. The Vikings just drafted a pair of WRs, too (Rodney Adams and Stacy Coley).
Free agent WR Michael Floyd pled guilty to 1 count of extreme DUI and was sentenced to 120 days of jail. Just 24 of those will be served in an actual prison, with the other 96 home detention. It's all lost training time for the 27-year-old, though. Between the legal issue and a disastrous 2016 season, Floyd will likely need to settle for a 1-year deal on the open market.
The Patriots claimed WR Michael Floyd on waivers. If there's a team that can get Floyd's career turned around, it's the Pats. He won't make a fantasy impact this season, but we'll be curious to see if New England signs him to a deal before he hits free agency in March.
The Cardinals have released WR Michael Floyd. It's a fitting end to a disastrous contract season. Floyd dropped too many passes, tallied just 446 yards and was arrested for DUI earlier this week. He's still only 27 with a 6'2 frame and a 1,000-yard season on his resume, so work won't be hard to find. J.J. Nelson figures to operate as Arizona's #2 WR the rest of the way. He's a boom/bust WR3 for this Sunday's game against the Saints.
