Redskins Look to Sign Michael Floyd for 2017

The Washington Redskins are interested in signing Michael Floyd for the 2017 season.

Floyd who remains on the free agent market is believed to have visited the Redskins and had initial discussions on whether or not Washington is a good fit for him going forward.


The 27-year old wideout was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals with their first pick (13th overall) in the 2012 NFL Draft. Floyd was released by Cardinals in December 2016 following a DUI arrest. 

Floyd was arrested and charged with two counts of driving under the influence after he was found passed out behind the wheel.

He was found guilty of extreme DUI, and was sentenced to 24 days in prison and 96 days of house arrest. After his release, he was ordered to pay a fine worth $5115.99 as part of his plea and undergo 30 hours of community service

He was then quickly snapped up off the waivers by the New England Patriots, but only managed to start in 2 games for the Patriots.


Now on the market again Floyd believes his best football is still in front of him and the Washington Redskins believe this too and are believed to have already tabled a offer to the former Notre Dame receiver which is believed to be a 2-year deal.

With quarterback Kirk Cousins losing his two main receivers in DeSean Jackson (Tampa Bay) and Pierre Garcon (San Francisco), the Redskins to fix what has been a horrible free agency period and they look to do this with the sign of Michael Floyd.


The Redskins signed Browns talented wide receiver Terrelle Pryor on a 1-year deal, but the potential signing of Floyd could make him the No.1 receiver at the Franchise, which is believed to have interested Floyd and have the Redskins leading the chase for his services for 2017

In his 5 seasons in the league Floyd has made 246 receptions, going for 3,781 yards and has scored 24 touchdown.
