The Arizona Cardinals and first-round pick Michael Floyd
have come to an agreement on a five-year contract.
Floyd, taken with the 13th pick in last April’s draft,
tweeted the news Monday afternoon, and the Cardinals
confirmed it minutes later.
The 22-year-old Floyd caught 100 passes as a senior and
over the course of his four-year career at Notre Dame, and
expected to get plenty of playing time as a rookie.
At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, Floyd has good size and enough
speed to be a downfield threat in the NFL.
The hope is he’ll take some pressure off of Pro Bowler
Larry Fitzgerald and give the Cardinals another option in
the passing game, which would be big for an offense
looking to improve off of a couple lackluster seasons.
The Cardinals also announced the signing of third round
Jamell Fleming, who inked a four-year deal
