Floyd recently worked out for the Ravens, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
A first-round pick of the Cardinals in 2012, Floyd was one of the up-and-coming wideouts in the NFL after posting at least 840 receiving yards and five touchdowns in three consecutive campaigns between 2013 and 2015. In the past two years, though, his production has fallen off a cliff, racking up 47 catches (on 93 targets) for 566 yards and five TDs in 26 games between Arizona, New England and Minnesota. The Ravens don't have much depth at wide receiver beyond free-agent additions Michael Crabtree and John Brown, so Baltimore could be a decent enough springboard for a bounce-back season.
The Vikings aren't considering re-signing Floyd, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
A St. Paul native and 2012 first-round pick, Floyd failed to revive his career last season with his hometown team, catching 10 of 17 targets for 78 yards in 11 games. He'd probably need a top-three receiver job to be worth keeping on the roster for another year, given that he's a total non-contributor on special teams. The 28-year-old shouldn't have too much trouble finding an organization willing to let him compete for a roster spot, though he'd have an easier time if he played special teams.
Floyd recorded 10 receptions for 78 yards through 11 games in 2017.
Floyd was brought in last offseason to compete for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart but ended the season as the fifth option and never saw more than 38 offensive reps in a game. Now an unrestricted free agent, the Vikings won't feel a ton of pressure to retain Floyd if the asking price is too high, especially considering the wealth of options they already have on offense. The 28-year-old will be entering his seventh NFL season but should still be able to attract the attention of some teams looking to bolster their receiving depth.
Floyd failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's blowout victory over the Bengals.
Floyd played 14 of 67 offensive snaps and was the recipient of one of Teddy Bridgewater's two pass attempts. Floyd was out-snapped by Laquon Treadwell 24-14, and Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen remain the only viable fantasy options among Vikings' wide receivers for most formats.
Floyd had one reception for three yards on two targets in Sunday's loss at Carolina.
Floyd played just five snaps on offense as he's fallen to fifth on the wide receiver depth chart. No wideout after Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen is getting enough playing time for viable fantasy value in most formats.
