Source: the Ravens tried out former Vikings WR Michael Floyd. First known suitor for Floyd to this point in free agency.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 30, 2018
Floyd is an intriguing player. Until recent years, Floyd has been a solid receiver in the NFL. In 2013, Floyd posted 1,041 receiving yards and five touchdowns with the Cardinals. The following two years, he had over 800 yards and six touchdowns in each. In 2016, Floyd’s production dipped to 446 yards and only one touchdown. Floyd was released the same year by Arizona when he was arrested for a DUI.
He was immediately signed by the Patriots, however, he only posted four receptions for 42 yards and one touchdown. Floyd would sign with the Vikings in 2017, but was suspended for the first four games of the season for substance abuse. He only caught 10 passes for 78 yards and zero touchdowns after returning to the field.
Floyd was once a promising player who took a nosedive after his arrest in 2016. Selected 13th overall in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, Floyd never truly realized his potential, although, he was a good receiver for the Cardinals for several years.
General Manager Ozzie Newsome is truly ‘leaving no stones unturned’ in his search for new receivers to bring to Baltimore. Does Michael Floyd still have any gas left in the tank at 28-years old? Could he even be trusted at this point? That’s for Newsome and the Ravens to decide.

Restricted free agent Willie Snead was also apart of the workout, per Field Yates.
Also part of that tryout: Saints RFA WR Willie Snead. If he signs an offer with another team, New Orleans can match it or lose him for no compensation. https://t.co/45WnnlrIDw— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 30, 2018
The Ravens already reportedly had Snead for a visit earlier in free agency. It is worth mentioning, if they were to make an offer to Snead, the Saints would have five days to match that offer.
