Signed a contract with the Vikings in July of 2013.
Floyd, who appeared in one game last season after going under the knife in mid-September to clean up his knee, is not back to full speed. "He's trying to get healthy.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Floyd is a starting defensive tackle who has become an impact player against the run while improving as a pass rusher. Floyd nearly doubled his sack total last season with 4.5 sacks. It's possible he could take a big leap in his third season.
Floyd's rookie season was a mild disappointment as the 2013 first-round draft pick came off the bench and had just 19 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He'll be thrust into a starting role at defensive tackle this season with the many changes on Minnesota's defensive line. The Vikings will be counting on him as a key run stuffer who can also make an occasional impact as a pass rusher.
Minnesota got a steal in Floyd with the 23rd overall pick in this year's draft. He may contend to start in Week 1 and could provide immediate production as a DL4 upside pick in most IDP leagues.
