MINNEAPOLIS - The fresh start for wide receiver Michael Floyd's sidetracked career will come at home in Minnesota.
Floyd agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Vikings on Wednesday.
Floyd finished last season with Super Bowl champion New England after a drunken driving arrest led to his departure from the Arizona Cardinals.
"Happy as ever!!! Happy to get to work," Floyd wrote on his Twitter account.
Floyd is a native of St. Paul, the capital city where he was a two-time winner of the Minnesota Associated Press Player of the Year award at Cretin-Derham Hall High School.
