Floyd was held without a catch on two targets in Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd played 31 of 62 snaps (50 percent) on offense, finishing fourth among Washington wide receivers. He could get a few more chances if Josh Doctson (concussion) misses time, but a Week 15 contest at Jacksonville doesn't provide much cause for optimism, nor does the Redskins' quarterback situation with Josh Johnson expected to start.

Floyd played 33 of 75 snaps (44 percent) on offense in Sunday's 23-21 loss to Houston, catching one pass for 18 yards on three targets.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd essentially split the No. 3 receiver job with Maurice Harris (41 snaps), while Josh Doctson (64) and slot man Trey Quinn (53) were regular parts of the offense. There wasn't much upside in the passing game with Alex Smith (leg) under center, but that doesn't mean Colt McCoy will provide an upgrade. Floyd may fall out of the offense altogether if/when Jamison Crowder (ankle) finally gets healthy.

Floyd played 31 of 58 snaps (53 percent) on offense in Sunday's 16-3 win over Tampa Bay, catching two of three targets for 15 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd has taken over as the No. 3 wide receiver in an injury-depleted offense, at least until Jamison Crowder (ankle) is able to return. With Crowder looking shaky for Week 11 against Houston, we could see Floyd get another extended look against a tough Texans defense.

Floyd will start at outside receiver for Paul Richardson (shoulder/knee) against the Cowboys on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Redskins are without Richardson, slot receiver Jamison Crowder (ankle) and receiving back Chris Thompson (ribs/knee), relying instead on fill-in options Floyd and Maurice Harris to pick up the slack. Jordan Reed is the best bet to see the highest target count, but with few established options otherwise, Floyd's first catch as a Redskin -- and first since Week 16 of last season with the Vikings -- could be imminent.

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.
