“I can’t say where I’ll be playing or what my role is,” he said. “That’s not my call.”
Vikings coach Leslie Frazier envisions Floyd being the backup to Williams, rotating during the games to keep Williams fresh and get Floyd some experience. Frazier said that he expects Letroy Guion and Fred Evans to play well enough at the other defensive tackle spot that Floyd won’t be forced onto the field.
“Hopefully it gets to the point where (Floyd is) productive enough where he can warrant increased reps as the year goes on,” Frazier said. “That would be optimum if he’s able to get in the rotation, have success and we can gradually add more reps to his play as the season goes on.”
Floyd said he felt comfortable during minicamps, learning the playbook and getting used to the new environment. The game is faster, the opponents are bigger and the outcomes are more intense, but again, he’s not worrying about the things he can’t control.
“I just want to keep getting better,” Floyd said. “I’m working on everything. There’s nothing I can say that I’ve perfected so I keep working.”
