Vikings' Michael Floyd: House arrest transferred to Minnesota

Floyd will be able to start practicing with the Vikings next week after having the remainder of his 96-day house arrest transferred from Arizona to Minnesota, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports.

Floyd, a St. Paul native, will be able to finish his sentence near the Vikings' facilities and therefore participate in the team's upcoming OTAs. He signed a one-year contract with Minnesota earlier this May, while the front office understands that he might face NFL discipline to begin the season after pleading guilty to extreme DUI. Floyd has proven to be effective as an NFL receiver, racking up 24 touchdowns throughout his five-year career. He'll still need to battle against 2016 first-rounder Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart at wideout.
