Michael Floyd will soar with the Arizona Cardinals next season


Floyd has been Golden as a Cardinal.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd shined in Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers at University of Phoenix Stadium.

The 24-year-old Floyd, who flourished in Bruce Arians’ vertical passing offense, caught six passes for 91 yards.

Taken out of Notre Dame 13th overall in 2012, the former Irishman snagged 65 pigskins for 1,041 yards and five touchdowns this season.

Establishing numerous school records in South Bend, the 6-foot-2, 220 pound Floyd is a tough and physically imposing athlete who understands the game and thrives on third downs.

Floyd, who is blessed with tremendous hands and able to complete the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds, benefited from playing alongside Carson Palmer.

Despite facing the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers in the brutal NFC West, Arizona managed to finish 10-6 and jockey for a playoff spot.

Floyd supplanted Andre Roberts as an option on the depth chart and made it difficult for defenses to double-team the dynamic Larry Fitzgerald.

Accordingly, Floyd capitalized on one-on-one isolation routes downfield and became a brilliant playmaker in the Valley of the Sun.

Considering Fitzgerald is uncertain to return to Arizona, Michael Floyd could fly even higher as a Cardinal next autumn.
