Turner not only hasn’t shut the door on returning to the NFL in 2018. He also will remain close to the game this August as teams prepare for the regular season. The 65-year-old Turner said Tuesday night he plans on attending several NFL training camps and has accepted similar invitations from four or five colleges.
Floyd, 27, was sentenced in February to 24 days in jail and 96 days of alcohol-free house arrest for a December DUI that led to his release from the Arizona Cardinals. He finished the 2016 season with the New England Patriots before signing with Minnesota in May.
A week after signing with the Vikings, his house arrest was transferred to Minnesota, allowing the receiver to join the team at OTAs. Earlier in June, TMZ reported Floyd asked to have his alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet removed so he could avoid injuries while training.
But that meant his ankle bracelet was replaced with random breath tests. If the reports of failed tests are true, he’d be subject to additional jail time.
