The contract is a one-year, $1.5-million contract that includes incentives worth up to $6 million, sources told NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Floyd had reportedly had talks with the Vikings, along with other teams, earlier this week, but had not received much interest earlier in free agency. The 27-year-old is a native of Minnesota, growing up near the Vikings’ stomping grounds in St. Paul.
The veteran receiver had been expected to be one of the most attractive 2017 free agents heading into the 2016 season, but poor production and a December DUI arrest saw his stock plummet.
Floyd will have a chance to earn playing time with the Vikings, but may start the year as a depth receiver with Laquon Treadwell, Adam Thielen, and Stefon Diggs expected to take on bigger roles in 2017.
