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.
