Teams around the league are quickly cutting down their rosters as they try to meet the deadline this Saturday. With roster sizes narrowing down to 53, a plethora of players will receive tough news regarding their career.

Michael Floyd is the latest player on the bubble to learn his fate for Week 1 of the regular season.

According to NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero, the Baltimore Ravens have parted ways with Floyd. They also released wide receiver Joe Horn Jr.

Floyd ascended to stardom at Notre Dame, where he finished with 271 receptions for 3,686 yards and 37 touchdowns. Following his four years in college, he became the 13th overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft.

In 2013, Floyd had 65 catches for 1,041 yards and five touchdowns. The Cardinals kept him for five years, but they decided to release him after his DUI arrest.

His next few years in the NFL consisted of brief stints with the Patriots, Vikings, Saints and Redskins. Now, he'll add the Ravens to his list of former teams.

Last week, Floyd did have three receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown. The reality is he didn't get to contribute much in the preseason outside of that performance.

It might be tough for the former Notre Dame star to see the field in Week 1 for any team, but at 29 years old, Floyd still has gas left in the tank.
