Michael Floyd has found a new home. Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports (via Twitter) that the veteran wideout has signed with the Saints.
The embattled wideout spent the 2017 season with the Vikings, hauling in 10 catches for 78 yards in 11 games (one start). While the 28-year-old had expressed interest in sticking around Minnesota, he was only able to garner a single workout with the Ravens back in March.
Floyd broke onto the scene in 2013 with Arizona, compiling 1,041 yards and five touchdowns. However, the former first-rounder’s numbers and role continued to decline over the next few years. Following a 2016 DUI arrest, Floyd was let go by the the Cardinals. He caught on with the Patriots for their 2016 Super Bowl run before landing with Minnesota last offseason.
Michael Thomas is entrenched atop the Saints’ receiver depth chart, while Ted Ginn Jr. and Cameron Meredith are also expected to start. However, Floyd could conceivably battle for snaps with any of the team’s other rostered wideouts, including Brandon Coleman, Tre’Quan Smith, and Josh Huff (who is suspended for the first two games of the upcoming campaign).

Because the Adrian Peterson signing worked out so well last year; the Saints decided to sign another problem that the Vikings didn’t want to bring back
Reception to Target ratio seems horrendous.
He’s not Larry Fitzgerald (who usually has as many drops each season as Cleveland has wins) but he has never had a QB the quality of Drew Brees supporting him either.
Guy with a drinking problem moves to New Orleans. What could go wrong ?
