Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he wants to build chemistry with all of the wide receivers because he will not be able to throw to WR Larry Fitzgerald all the time. "It's of the utmost importance to be on the same page with Larry, but it's of the utmost importance to be on the same page with every one of those guys because the ball can't always go to him," Palmer said. "I know that's not what he wants to hear, but that's the truth. There will be teams that key on him and there will be games where he doesn't have as many catches as other games. It's that much more important I have that rhythm and timing down with [WR Michael Floyd] and [WR Andre Roberts] and whoever that third and fourth guy is going to be."

Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said WR Michael Floyd has earned more playing time in the second half of the season. Floyd has played just over 60 percent of the offensive plays in the team's last two contests compared to around 40 or 45 percent the rest of the season. Floyd was targeted 18 times in the first seven games (eight catches) and has been thrown to 18 times in the last two games alone (10 catches).

Arizona Cardinals WR Early Doucet will likely be the odd-man out with WR Michael Floyd expected to become a bigger part of the offense in the second half of the season. WR Andre Roberts will likely line up opposite WR Larry Fitzgerald in the team's two-receiver sets, but Floyd is a prototypical outside receiver in three-wide sets. "If Mike played more, he's just learning the 'Z' (position) and I would be forced to go into the slot," Roberts said. "I don't know what that would do to my reps. We have a whole bunch of formations. We'll see."

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd, a Minnesota native, is excited to be headed home for the team's Week 7 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He has played in the Metrodome before, but only for high school games. "Just the environment, it will be different because of the noise," Floyd said. "It's the NFL. Plus you've got some hometown kids. The crowd will want the hometown team to win, but I've got a lot of fans up there. It'll be a good time."

"He's not going to be asked to carry the full load. He'll have a nice complementary role until he gets comfortable in there and he can get featured more and more. He's confident in his ability, and that's what I really like about him."
Thu, 09 Aug 2012 08:07:03 -0700

"He recognizes that Michael Floyd is a young talent, he can help our team and (Larry's) working hard to make sure that Michael understands what he needs to be a good player and make a contribution for us in his first year."

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd might enter training camp listed as the fourth wide receiver on the team's depth chart. However, it sounds as if the team is happy with his work ethic, and they simply want to bring him along slowly and have him develop at his own pace.

The St. Louis Rams were interested in RB Trent Richardson and WR Justin Blackmon during the first round of the NFL Draft, but both players went before them. Head coach Jeff Fisher said the team was a little surprised the Cleveland Browns worked out a pre-draft trade to move up one spot and land Richardson. The Jacksonville Jaguars then traded ahead of the Rams to land Blackmon. WR Michael Floyd also made sense for the Rams at No. 14 after they traded back, but the Arizona Cardinals moved up and drafted him before the Rams. "Remember it's a seven-round draft. We do have a plan for wide receiver and multiple other positions. We were comfortable in what happened, I can tell you that," general manager Les Snead said on missing out on several top options.
