Height, weight: 6-3, 220
High school: Cretin-Derham Hall. He was the 2007 Star Tribune metro player of the year.

Last season: Cut by the Cardinals in December after a drunken-driving arrest, Floyd was signed by New England. He was on the Patriots roster for 51 days and caught just four passes. But he made $1.2 million and won a championship ring even though he appeared in only one postseason game and did not play in the Super Bowl.
Troubles: Last December, he was arrested and charged with two counts of drunken driving after he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car. He was found guilty of extreme drunken driving in February and sentenced to 24 days in prison and 96 days of house arrest. He also got a drunken-driving citation while at Notre Dame.
Next up: Floyd agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Vikings that includes up to $6 million in incentives. He is facing an NFL suspension for his conviction and must remain in Arizona until mid-June under terms of his sentence.
