Keep him.

I don't want him next year, but something tells me he plays really well in a contract year. Let somebody else overpay him next year and get the compensatory pick.

According to a league source, if Floyd can’t pass a physical by March 9, then his contract's injury guarantee comes into play, locking him in at $6.8 million for 2017.

Obviously we don't know the truth.....but on the surface it seems like Floyd has a good lawyer/agent and really knows how to milk the system. Wouldn't be shocked if he spends next year on IR and just collects his $6.8M

I disagree. We saw a lot of Stephen this year and he was pretty average. Floyd is a much better player.

He obviously has something more going on with his knee, that he is rehabbing. And I agree it sounds like he is working the system.
