A former star college wide receiver and NFL star has signed with a new team. Former Notre Dame standout Michael Floyd is headed to New Orleans.

This will be Floyd's fourth NFL team in the past three seasons. Floyd was arrested in December 2016 on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Just two days later, the Arizona Cardinals released the former first-round pick. He later signed with the New England Patriots, and was set to enter the 2017 season as a member of the Minnesota Vikings.

Floyd was suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season. Now, he'll play for the Saints.

Floyd put together back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons in 2010 and 2011 during his career at Notre Dame. He currently holds the Notre Dame record for most receptions in a single season with 100, surpassing Golden Tate's 93-catch season in 2009.

Floyd also holds school records for most career receptions (271), career 100-yd games (16), and receiving yards (3,689).

The oft-troubled wideout had 10 receptions for 78 yards during his brief stint with the Vikings. Now, he'll have Drew Brees tossing him the rock.
