He joined the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1990, and his 421 rushing yards and 73 catches for 811 yards (and 5 touchdowns) won him the Jackie Parker Trophy for best rookie in the Western Conference.[2] In 1991, he rushed for 677 yards and in 1992 another 373 yards (and 1471 in total as a Green Rider), but he was traded to the Edmonton Eskimos part way thru the 1993 season.[3] Good fortune shined on Floyd, as he starred in the Esks' 1993 Grey Cup championship, scoring a touchdown.
