Vikings WR Michael Floyd Living With Former Notre Dame Teammate Kyle Rudolph

Michael Floyd, now with the Minnesota Vikings, is living with former Notre Dame teammates Kyle Rudolph.

Michael Floyd, a Minnesota native, is back in his home state and living with his old college roommate, Kyle Rudolph, after signing a one-year deal worth $1.41 million with the Vikings on May 10.

"Them taking a chance on me, that was the last straw," he told ESPN. "You want to accomplish all your goals, you've got to have your head on straight. They know that. That's what I'm doing right now. I'm focused on helping this club win ballgames, and learning. I couldn't be in a better position right now, being home with family and friends and having teammates that I can lean on for anything."

Floyd, who was cut by the Cardinals following a DUI arrest last December, will have an opportunity to prove himself in the NFL after what has been a tumultuous past year for the talented wide receiver. Luckily, he'll be around some familiar faces who can help him jumpstart his career, as he's living with tight end Kyle Rudolph, who he roomed with for three years while at Notre Dame.

"I just texted him and told him I'm sleeping downstairs," Floyd told ESPN when asked about his relationship with Rudolph. "There's no, 'No.' We've known each other too long to say no. Even if it was the other way, and he had to spend a night sometime, he would come over to my house."

Floyd, who is still on house arrest, could still be subject to NFL disciplinary action stemming from last December's arrest.
