Floyd is active for Monday's contest in New Orleans, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In his second chance to do so with the Redskins, Floyd is poised to earn snaps, and while Paul Richardson is blocking his path to reps as a Z receiver, Floyd may get in on the act at X receiver in the absence of Josh Doctson (heel). No matter, Floyd will have to contend with Maurice Harris for reps at that spot, capping his potential due to a lack of guaranteed work.

Floyd (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was one of two wide receivers signed to bolster the wide receiver in Washington this week, but he's the only one to survive until game day after Breshad Perriman was waived Saturday. With little time to learn the playbook or fit in many drills, it's no surprise Floyd is on the Redskins' inactive list Week 3. In the long run, it'll be interesting to see if he can jump Brian Quick or Maurice Harris, both of whom have experience with coach Jay Gruden's game plans.

The Redskins signed Floyd to a contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

After posting 209 catches for 3,293 yards and 19 touchdowns while missing just one game the first four years of his career, Floyd has fallen off the NFL map the past two campaigns, with a 47-566-5 line in 26 games during that span. The Redskins provide a spot for Floyd to make an impact, but he'll have to battle his way up the depth chart to do so.

Floyd has been released by the Saints, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd signed with New Orleans during the first week of training camp, hoping to make a push for one of the final roster spots. Now three years removed from his last productive season, the 2012 first-round pick may be running out of chances in the NFL.

The Saints signed Floyd on Tuesday, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

EDGE Analysis

The receiving corps is currently sans Brandon Coleman (undisclosed, PUP list) and Travin Dural (arm) for an undetermined amount of time. Floyd thus arrives in New Orleans to act as a camp body with the potential to get into the good graces of coach Sean Payton and quarterback Drew Brees. Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn, Cameron Meredith and rookie Tre'Quan Smith are all guaranteed roles in the offense, but Floyd could eke his way into that group with a productive preseason.

Floyd recently worked out for the Ravens, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

A first-round pick of the Cardinals in 2012, Floyd was one of the up-and-coming wideouts in the NFL after posting at least 840 receiving yards and five touchdowns in three consecutive campaigns between 2013 and 2015. In the past two years, though, his production has fallen off a cliff, racking up 47 catches (on 93 targets) for 566 yards and five TDs in 26 games between Arizona, New England and Minnesota. The Ravens don't have much depth at wide receiver beyond free-agent additions Michael Crabtree and John Brown, so Baltimore could be a decent enough springboard for a bounce-back season.

The Vikings aren't considering re-signing Floyd, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

A St. Paul native and 2012 first-round pick, Floyd failed to revive his career last season with his hometown team, catching 10 of 17 targets for 78 yards in 11 games. He'd probably need a top-three receiver job to be worth keeping on the roster for another year, given that he's a total non-contributor on special teams. The 28-year-old shouldn't have too much trouble finding an organization willing to let him compete for a roster spot, though he'd have an easier time if he played special teams.

Floyd recorded 10 receptions for 78 yards through 11 games in 2017.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was brought in last offseason to compete for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart but ended the season as the fifth option and never saw more than 38 offensive reps in a game. Now an unrestricted free agent, the Vikings won't feel a ton of pressure to retain Floyd if the asking price is too high, especially considering the wealth of options they already have on offense. The 28-year-old will be entering his seventh NFL season but should still be able to attract the attention of some teams looking to bolster their receiving depth.

Floyd failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's blowout victory over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd played 14 of 67 offensive snaps and was the recipient of one of Teddy Bridgewater's two pass attempts. Floyd was out-snapped by Laquon Treadwell 24-14, and Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen remain the only viable fantasy options among Vikings' wide receivers for most formats.

Floyd had one reception for three yards on two targets in Sunday's loss at Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd played just five snaps on offense as he's fallen to No. fifth on the wide receiver depth chart. No receiver after Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen is getting enough playing time for viable fantasy value in most formats.
