Report: Cardinals open to trade offers for Michael Floyd

The Cardinals are exercising their 2016 option on wide receiver Michael Floyd’s contract, but they’re reportedly open to letting another team decide where things go with Floyd from there.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports that the team “will listen” to trade offers for the wideout if any team is interested. As of now, however, no team has made such an inquiry about the possibility of acquiring the 2012 first-round pick.

Floyd caught 47 passes for 841 yards and six touchdowns last season, numbers that were down from his 66-catch, 1,054-yard sophomore season. Some of that can be attributed to the fact that the Cardinals lost both Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton to season-ending injuries, although a willingness to move him suggests the Cardinals might not think that’s the entire explanation.

A trade would put John Brown into a bigger role in the Arizona offense in his second season and would probably put the Cards in position to draft a wide receiver at some point in the next two days to round out the depth chart.

  1. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Vikings offer the first pick in the fifth round for him. They got Mike Wallace for a fifth-round pick, so that sounds like the going rate.

  2. whoa, the Jets should be all over on him.. 2nd round pick and we got a deal. If not then Beckham > Floyd..

    I remember that jets really like Floyd when he was in draft. We’ll see if they still have that feeling or not.

  3. I don’t pay close attention to the Arizona Cardinals but thought this kid was in their future plans and a building block. What happened that has him expendable?

  4. Man if they knew they were going to shop him why not put a package deal for AP?? I mean we have the OL ready now, send them Floyd & trade back in 2nd and get extra pick in 3rd, so do FLOYD & 3rd for AP!! Make it happen Kiem & BA

  5. Fitzgerald is going to retire in a few years, Arizona should keep Floyd, he might have regressed in year three but he is an asset for the future

  6. Floyd & a 3rd for AP? Spielman would hang up on you. Maybe the Vikes offer a 4th or 5th with a conditional 6th to bring Floyd home to MN.

    I mean, what is so complicated about this that seemingly 99% of the people out there fail to grasp even the simplest of concepts??

    The Vikings aren’t going to do anyone any favors. PERIOD.

  8. Wow the guys a freak of nature .Can’t believe it there’s not a wide reciver in the draft as good .What are they thinking .

  9. Yea I just don’t no what’s going on .Something not right I believe there’s .More to it also he had six tds 64catches 845 yds with no quarter back last year .Whats going on here .

  10. Ye needs to get out of arizona .Be doing him a favor still can’t believe it at 24 .Years old Hes in his prime wow.

  11. “Will listen” to offers doesn’t mean the Cardinals have soured on Floyd. Everyone has a price and is available.

    And yet there are few deals. There’s nothing to see here.
