METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Michael Floyd made it clear that he’s looking for a fresh start to what’s left of his once-promising NFL career.

“I think I still have a lot to offer. I’m only 28,” the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Floyd said Thursday, after his second practice with the Saints on Thursday. “I don’t think I’m too old.”
Saints coach Sean Payton described the signing as relatively low risk this early in camp, when rosters are at 90 players and the club has about a month to evaluate players before trimming its roster to the regular season maximum of 53.
“I think I know what he can be,” Payton said. “That’s the cool thing about coaching, is when you get somebody and you feel like you can make a difference.”
