Report: Vikings Bring Home Another Minnesota Talent
Reports say the Vikings are bringing another Minnesota talent back home.
This time, it is Michael Floyd. A graduate of Cretin-Derham Hall High School in St. Paul, Minnesota. Floyd played his college ball at Notre Dame, and has had a fairly successful NFL career. He is signing a 1-year deal with the Vikings, according to Darren Wolfson of KSTP-TV in the Twin Cities.
The reason Floyd was on the market was because he was arrested for a DUI back in December of 2016. According to reports from Ian Rapoport, Floyd feels great.
Floyd spent most of his career with the Arizona Cardinals after being the 13th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. The 27-year-old also had a short stint with the New England Patriots last season.
Floyd is still in his prime, and has the ability to get open down the field. He should be a great fit for the Vikings, as he joins the talented group of Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Laquon Treadwell.
He had his break-out season in 2013 when he brought in 65 passes for 1,041 yards and six touchdowns. The Vikings are changing their focus this season, and this move only helps an offense that struggled last season.
