Floyd missed three games last season due to injury, limiting him to just 34 tackles and 2.5 sacks. However, in head coach Mike Zimmer's defense, Floyd plays a critical role at defensive tackle, and has shown enough when healthy to justify the Vikings extending his rookie contract into 2017 by exercising the option.
Floyd made his mark in Sunday's contest with one sack and one run stuff from his defensive tackle spot. His overall production on the season was a bit of a disappointment following a 2014 campaign in which he posted 4.5 sacks and five run stuffs, but it's important to note that he did miss three games this season due to knee and ankle injuries. When healthy, Floyd has shown himself to be a quality complementary player on the interior to defensive end Everson Griffen, though his production may not be able to be fully measured by the box score alone.
