The Ravens have signed veteran wide receiver Michael Floyd to a one-year deal, adding another veteran and even more competition to their wide receiver corps.
Floyd played 13 games with the Washington Redskins last season, where he had 10 catches for 100 yards. After a strong start to his career in Arizona, and 1,000-yard season in 2013, Floyd is looking to return to his previous form.
The 29-year-old Floyd caught at least 45 passes during his first four NFL seasons. He spent most of his first five years with the Cardinals before stints with the New England Patriots (2016), Minnesota Vikings (2017), and Redskins 2018. For his career, Floyd has caught 266 passes for 3,959 yards and 25 touchdowns.
In Baltimore, Floyd would be reunited with safety Tony Jefferson, who he played with in Arizona, and Ravens Assistant Tight Ends Coach Andy Bischoff, who coached Floyd in high school in Minnesota.
The Ravens have revamped their wide receiver depth chart this offseason, drafting Marquise “Hollywood” Brown (first round) and Miles Boykin (third round), and signing former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Seth Roberts.
Floyd adds another veteran presence to the group, joining Willie Snead IV, Chris Moore, and Roberts as the most experienced receivers on the roster. At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Floyd would also provide a big-body possession and red-zone target for quarterback Lamar Jackson.
The Ravens waived quarterback Jalan McClendon and defensive tackle Kalil Morris in corresponding moves.
