Arizona Cardinals wide reciever Michael Floyd has fifth year option picked up

The Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday decided to pick up the fifth year option on their wide receiver Michael Floyd, 25.
Floyd was drafted in the first round of the 2012 National Football League Draft out of the University of Notre Dame where he played for the Fighting Irish football program from 2008-2011.
Floyd signed a four year, $9.972 million dollar contract before the start of the 2012 football season. Had the Cardinals decided not to pick up his fifth year option before the deadline on May 2, 2015, Floyd would have been a free agent at the end of the 2015 football season.
Floyd will earn a salary of $7.3 million dollar contract if he make the 2016 Cardinals football team.
If Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer can avoid getting injured during the 2015 football season, Floyd should be able to have a superb season as the second top wide receiver alongside his teammate Larry Fitzgerald.
Floyd had two great seasons as one of the best wide receivers on the Cardinals football team in his first two seasons with the team.
During the 2014 football season due to the fact that the Cardinals had to use four different starting quarterbacks, Floyd did not the same number of receptions and touchdowns scored during the 2014 football season than his outstanding season during the 2013 football season.
The Cardinals are confident that Floyd will have more receptions and touchdown scored during the 2015 football season. I am sure Floyd is looking forward to the challenge of improving his production as a wide receiver during the 2015 football season.
