Minnesota Vikings receiver Michael Floyd had the remaining sentence of his 96-day house arrest transferred from Arizona to Minnesota so he can begin practicing with his new team earlier than expected, a league source told ESPN's Ben Goessling.

Floyd was arrested on a DUI in December which resulted in his release from the Arizona Cardinals. He had begun his sentence Feb. 17, which may have contributed to his delay in finding a new team through free agency.

The 27-year-old is a native of Minnesota, growing up in St. Paul, and will begin practicing with the Vikings next week when they begin organized team activities. He signed a one-year deal with the team May 10.

Floyd could still face discipline from the league stemming from his DUI arrest and will likely begin his tenure in Minnesota competing to be the team's fourth receiver.
