first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The Arizona Cardinals still are not quite sure what they have in receiver Michael Floyd, but it looks like they’d like to keep him around for just a bit longer.Darren Urban of reports the team has picked up the fifth-year option on the 25-year-old wideout.The Cardinals had until this weekend to decide on the option. Had they chosen not to pick it up, the former first-round pick would have become an unrestricted free agent following the 2015 season. Comments   Share   Since being taken 13th overall by the Cardinals in the 2012 draft, the former Notre Dame receiver has shown flashes of excellence but has also been inconsistent.After catching 45 passes for 562 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie, Floyd exploded onto the scene in 2013, catching 65 passes for a team-leading 1,041 yards and five scores.Expected to take another step forward in 2014, Floyd struggled at times, finishing with 47 catches for 841 yards and six touchdowns. He topped the 100-yard mark in just three games. Some of Floyd’s struggles last season can be attributed to the team’s issues at the quarterback position, where injuries forced the Cardinals into using four different passers. In picking up his option, the organization would seem to believe that the 6-foot-3 wideout will rebound from 2014 and get back on track to being one of the better young receivers in the NFL.center_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img
