Arizona Cardinals not shopping WR Michael Floyd

New, comments

The GM will always take calls but has not initiated any about moving the WR.

Over the last couple of weeks, there have surfaced rumors about the Arizona Cardinals shopping receiver Michael Floyd. The team did not immediately decide to exercise his fifth-year option, but eventually did. However, in an interview on Arizona Sports 98.7 in Phoenix, general manager Steve Keim debunked any trade rumors for the fourth-year receiver.

Reporter Kent Somers reported the Cardinals would be willing to listen to trade offers for Floyd. Keim said on the radio he wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't listen.

That tweet by Somers had media outlets running with the story. Somers did note no one had inquired.

Keim explains, "I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't listen if somebody was to call about any of our players -- Michael Floyd or whoever is on our roster."

Keim did stress, though, "I have not made one call or actively tried to push Michael Floyd, nor have I had a call on Michael Floyd."

In other words, there is nothing here. The team isn't seeking to move him. No team has initiated any sort of trade talk.

This doesn't mean Somers' report is incorrect. All it means is no one is interested right now. The Cardinals would listen. There just isn't anything to listen to right now.
