Minnesota Vikings Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Vikings GM Rick Spielman said he expects Floyd to be with the team for the start of training camp.
Impact: Released by the Cardinals in December after a DUI arrest, Floyd spent 24 days in an Arizona jail in February and was granted permission to finish out his house arrest in Minnesota after signing with his hometown team. His violation of the house arrest led to speculation he'd be released, but it seems the Vikings still plan on giving him a shot, even though his argument in the recent legal case -- blaming his significant kombucha consumption for positive alcohol tests -- seems flimsy at best. While he should be available at the start of training camp, Floyd may find himself merely competing for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart, as 2016 first-round selection Laquon Treadwell got most of the first-team work alongside Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen when the Vikings used three-wide sets during their offseason program. Given that he has no real history of contributing on special teams, Floyd may have to battle just to make the Week 1 roster.
News: Floyd was sentenced Monday to one day in jail and ordered to serve the final five days of his house-arrest sentence for violating the original terms of his punishment, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Floyd, who began serving the 24-day jail sentence in February after pleading guilty to extreme DUI, was deemed to have violated his 96-day house-arrest sentence by testing positive for alcohol earlier this month. Although Floyd reportedly blamed the positive tests on a fermented tea containing trace amounts of alcohol, the 27-year-old was sent back to jail for a day-long stint. From there, Floyd will need to serve his final five days of house arrest before completing his punishment. Despite Floyd's tumultuous offseason, he's expected to battle for a top-four spot on the Vikings' depth chart at receiver during training camp, at which point his current legal troubles will be behind him.
