Appearing on Sirius NFL Radio with Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt on Sunday, Floyd revealed that he’s already visited the Browns and Panthers. He worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles this past week, and will visit the Titans, Rams, Bengals, and Jets during the coming week. The Cardinals, Dolphins, 49ers, and Vikings will host Floyd the following week.

Per the PFT Visits and Workouts Tracker, Greenwood has pre-draft visits with the Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tennessee Titans. Greenwood also has private workouts with the Cowboys and Miami Dolphins.
