Redskins To Add Michael Floyd

The Monday workout that led to Breshad Perriman earning a Redskins contract also produced another offer, and Michael Floyd will be another new wideout coming to Washington full-time.

Floyd will sign with the Redskins, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter), and join Perriman in adding to the team’s fluid receiving corps.

Perriman, Floyd and Kendall Wright were among the notable receivers to audition for Washington on Monday morning. Floyd, who has three 800-plus-yard receiving seasons on his resume, will follow Perriman as a likely depth piece for the reeling Redskins.

Washington placed rookies Cam Sims and Trey Quinn on IR, along with second-year man Robert Davis. And Paul Richardson entered Week 2 with a questionable designation because of a shoulder injury.

Floyd was most recently with the Saints, who signed him late in the offseason and cut him after the preseason slate. He has not played a regular role on a team since the Cardinals cut him in 2016 after an off-field incident. The former first-round pick did post three 800-plus-yard seasons, but those came from 2013-15. He caught 10 passes for 78 yards with the Vikings last season.
