Michael Floyd gets back to work after Fitzgerald calls him out

Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald said before the NFL draft that he was hoping the Cardinals would select receiver Michael Floyd, noting that the two of them are both Minnesota natives and that the two of them could work together during the offseasons.

Now Floyd is finding out that Fitzgerald is serious about his offseason work.

On Monday, Fitzgerald took to Twitter to call Floyd out, saying that Floyd had missed three workouts in a row and that Fitzgerald was going to have to question whether Floyd really wanted to be a great receiver.

Apparently Fitzgerald calling him out publicly was just what Floyd needed as motivation, because today Floyd was back to working out with Fitzgerald.

Whether Fitzgerald was seriously upset with Floyd for missing workouts or just playfully giving him a hard time, Floyd is lucky to have a veteran like Fitzgerald to show him the ropes. And he’d be wise not to miss many opportunities to work with Fitzgerald.
