Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd looked impressive in the first day of organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday, May 14. He ran with the first team more than WR Andre Roberts, who also had a good showing.
Huddle Up: With defenses paying more attention to Larry Fitzgerald there will be opportunities for whomever lines up opposite him. Floyd makes for an intriguing sleeper in that role, with Bruce Arians calling the plays and Carson Palmer an upgrade at quarterback.

The Arizona Cardinals are unhappy with the lapses in concentration that WR Michael Floyd has shown this season and demoted him to the fourth wide receiver in Week 11 because of several focus issues during the game. Floyd still is expected to receive a good amount of playing time with the season winding down.
Huddle Up: The rookie wideout appeared to be trending up with 5 catches in both Weeks 9 and 10, but then came the demotion and his 2-catch, 18-yard clunker last week. No matter where Floyd ranks on depth chart or how much playing time he receives, he's going to be hard to trust with the team's current QB question marks.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said WR Michael Floyd will continue to receive more reps on offense moving forward.
Huddle Up: Floyd has 18 targets in the last 2 games as the Cardinals have been playing from behind and using lots of 4 wide sets. As long as they are in catch-up mode, Floyd will see more action as the rookie is workid into the mix.

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd, a Minnesota native, is excited to be headed home for the team's Week 7 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He has played in the Metrodome before, but only for high school games. 'Just the environment, it will be different because of the noise,' Floyd said. 'It's the NFL. Plus you've got some hometown kids. The crowd will want the hometown team to win, but I've got a lot of fans up there. It'll be a good time.'
Huddle Up: Floyd only has displayed brief flashes of his talent, but the Cards' pass-protection issues have held him back as much as anything. He has 7 catches for 84 yards and a TD in 6 games, and at this point, is really is only worth rostering in deep leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd remains behind WRs Andre Roberts and Early Doucet on the depth chart, and he has played with the reserves through two preseason games. The complementary role should help Floyd ease into the league, according to WR Larry Fitzgerald. 'Michael has a unique opportunity,' Fitzgerald said. 'He's not going to be asked to carry the full load. Heï¿½ll have a nice complementary role until he gets comfortable in there and he can get featured more and more. Heï's confident in his ability, and that's what I really like about him.'
Huddle Up: Obviously, hold off on anointing Floyd as the clear-cut starter opposite Fitzgerald. The first-round pick from Notre Dame has some adjustments to make when it comes to the NFL game. And, hey, Doucet and Roberts have already flashed some play-making ability when called upon, so it's best not to write them off just yet, either.

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd is reportedly not in great shape, which explains why he currently is projected as the team's No. 4 wide receiver. There are also some early questions about his quickness and work ethic. Andre Roberts is the favorite to start opposite WR Larry Fitzgerald at wide receiver.
Huddle Up: Floyd recently spent time at Fitzgerald's receiver camp, which is know for being an intense workout, so it's a bit surprising that he's not physically ready to go. Fitzgerald will tutor him, but if he's sucking wind at training camp the learning curve will be a bit longer.

Arizona Cardinals rookie WR Michael Floyd showed up to WR Larry Fitzgerald's camp Tuesday, July 10. The workouts are taking place in Minnesota. 'I know (Fitzgerald) wants the best for me and every time I'm out here with him, I work hard,' Floyd said.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald raved about the kid on Twitter: "Just finished another strong workout with @Wellefast. @MichaelMFloyd killed it 2day & led the group in all drills & squatted 400+. #beast"

The Arizona Cardinals signed first-round pick WR Michael Floyd to a five-year deal Monday, June 11, and third-round selection CB Jamell Fleming to a four-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: With the contract issue out of the way, Floyd should move quickly into the wingman role opposite Larry Fitzgerald.

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (quadriceps) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 31, because of a quadriceps strain. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said the injury is not serious.
Huddle Up: Not a big newsbreaker this early in the summer, even for the 13th overall pick of the draft. The Cards expect Floyd to beat out Andre Roberts and Early Doucet for the No. 2 gig.
