Just one day before their mini-camp, the Arizona Cardinals inked Michael Floyd to a rookie contract, making him an official NFL player.
The deal is a 4 year rookie contract, with a team option of a 5th year. The financials of the deal weren;t announced, but NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, said Floyd’s four-year deal is worth $10 million in guaranteed money, with of course the option for the 5th year.
Selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the 6 ft. 3 in. wide receiver set school records at Notre Dame with 271 receptions for 3,686 yards and 37 touchdowns in his career. Floyd is coming off a senior season in which he caught 100 passes for 1,147 yards and 9 touchdowns.
Michael is expected to help Pro-Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald out on offense and give a duel threat that defenses have to take account for. Both players, if used properly, can have terrific seasons. A;; the pressure on the Cardinals lies in quarterback Kevin Kolb’s hands.
