Len Pasquarelli of The Sports Xchange confirms that Cardinals rookie WR Michael Floyd has been slow to adjust to the work ethic of the pro game and is expected to open training camp no better than fourth on the depth chart.
Teammate Larry Fitzgerald called Floyd out via Twitter last week when the rookie failed to show up to his summer camp. Floyd eventually did report to Fitzgerald’s camp, which has led to well-publicized breakout seasons for a number of NFL players, but Fitzgerald remarked that the rookie was having a hard time with his conditioning.
The Cardinals reportedly remain high on Andre Roberts as the No. 2 receiver opposite Fitzgerald and it would appear as though Early Doucet has the inside track to claim the slot position.
