Michael Floyd listed as a starter ahead of Andre Roberts


With the rest of the league getting  ready for training camp, teams should be releasing depth charts to give players and fans an idea of what they are possibly looking at for starters.

As expected, Michael Floyd is listed as a starter ahead of Andre Roberts on the Arizona Cardinals initial depth chart. Floyd ran ahead of Roberts through the off-season.

Floyd is an ideal fit for Bruce Arian’s offense, sitting at the No. 2 wide receiver, standing at 6’3 and weighing in at 220 pounds, should be a comfortable target for new quarterback Carson Palmer this season.

Roberts will slide in as Arizona’s No. 3 receiver, spending most of his playing time in the slot unless he can show the coaches that he belongs at No. 2 in their upcoming pre-season games.

With Carson Palmer, Floyd’s numbers should greatly improve from last seasons. Going into his second year of his career, he has 562 receiving yards on 45 receptions and two touchdowns. He had a break out game against the San Francisco 49ers in December, picking up 166 receiving yards on eight receptions with one touchdown.
