Michael Floyd signs with hometown Minnesota Vikings

Michael Floyd to sign with Vikings, return home to Minnesota

An NFL suspension of at least two games seems inevitable as well, something Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman acknowledged in a statement regarding Floyd's signing. He's also played in the postseason each of the last three seasons, two with Arizona and most recently with New England.

This Jan. 11, 2017 photo shows New England Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd speaking to media at his locker after NFL football practice in Foxborough, Mass.

Floyd, who starred at Cretin-Derham Hall in St. Paul - the high school that produced Joe Mauer, Paul Molitor and Matt Birk - will join a group of receivers that includes Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs and 2016 first-round pick Laquon Treadwell. "We have offered Michael the full support and assistance of the Minnesota Vikings organization ..." While he is still on house arrest in Arizona, he now has a contract to with his hometown team, the Minnesota Vikings.

Coach Mike Zimmer mostly sticks to a meritocracy when he assigns playing time; draft status doesn't have much say in whether a player will see the field frequently.

Bouchard, ranked No. 59 in the world, said the WTA is sending a wrong message to the kids by allowing Sharapova to play. Kontaveit had only five unforced errors in the first set, but Sharapova broke for 4-3 and won the next two games.

Floyd told the Pioneer Press in January it was "a mistake that I made" in December and that "it was tough" being released by the Cardinals. "I have been training extremely hard this off-season in addition to taking responsibility and paying the consequences for my mistake. Time to go to work".

Floyd caught on in another great situation and fumbled away that chance as he was inactive for rookie Malcolm Mitchell as the Patriots marched forward to another Super Bowl win.

During his career, Floyd has 3,781 receiving yards on 246 catches. The receiver has averaged 15.4 yards per catch during his five year career, which should thrill the Vikings, who only had one receiver average over 11 yards per catch in 2016.
