Floyd still works out daily, not completely closing the door on playing again. But with the phone not ringing, it was natural to think about his next professional move.

A 6-foot-3 receiver who starred at Cretin-Derham Hall and Notre Dame, Floyd was the 13th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by Arizona.

Floyd caught 45 passes for 562 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie, then jumped up to to 65 catches, 1,041 yards, and five touchdowns in his second year.

Floyd caught 23 touchdowns in 76 games with the Cardinals. Arizona cut him midway through the 2016 season after a DUI arrest.

Floyd landed with the Patriots, where he caught four passes for 42 yards and a touchdown in two games. He added a nine-yard catch in the playoffs and won his first career Super Bowl ring.

Floyd spent the 2017 season with the Vikings and 2018 in Washington.
