Someone has to take away Rick's privileges to sign WR FA's. 9 time out of 10 they are a bust and a completely frustration. AND are over paid, when even the guy with the least common sense know it. I really am tired of Ricks moves, his vision, and everything else about him.

And Cris Carter, as mentioned up thread somewhere.

I remember ppl doubting me on/off the field, a lot like Michael Floyd. This turnaround can happen again and we believe in you. Welcome home.



This is the most interesting thing about this signing to me. Probably needlessly so. I remember back when the Vikes took a shot at Koren Robinson, Carter came out and was quoted as saying that he would never stay clean. After least I remember it that way. I presume he has met Floyd at some point and wonder why he's more upbeat on him.

I'm fine with the signing. The dollar is what it is, but they needed to spend somewhere at this point and on paper, it adds a nice bolster to the WR group. I think it's basically asking that one of Floyd or Treadwell step up and earn something. Better that competition then relying just on Treadwell stepping up.

I'm curious about Jarius Wright because he's shown us some good stuff in the past, but last year the injury kind of set him back, but it never felt like he was going to be a major player anyway. With that, I go back to a depth play and allowing more competition for a 3rd WR spot. Coley vs. Adams vs. Wright vs. Treadwell vs. Floyd...Can't hurt.

Arrested for Extreme DUI. Is there anything higher than that?

Quote:
Michael Floyd's debut with the Minnesota Vikings may come a little later than expected.

According to Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press, Floyd is set to serve a league-issued suspension stemming from his DUI charge in December. The duration of the suspension is not yet known.
As stated by Tomasson, there is precedent for the duration of the suspension, with anywhere from two to four games probably for the troubled wide receiver.



Read this observation somewhere: The Vikings currently have a 5th rounder and a UDFA starting ahead of two first rounders.

Is the 1.5M guaranteed? I assume the Vikings knew he'd be suspended but I wonder if there's some sort of clause if it's 50%+ of the season or something they can release him. My guess is 4 games but you never know.

I believe the $1.5 mil is gtd. Incentives up to $6 mil. He got his house arrest moved to Minnesota, so his timeline to join the team moves up. That was expected to be a big road block.

They haven't announced a suspension yet?
