MESA, Ariz. – After a solid defensive performance against the Spokane Shock, DB MARQUIS FLOYD has garnered the Riddell Defensive Player of the Week award.

Floyd now ranks fifth in the League in interceptions with nine this season. The Georgia native finished the night with two pass breakups and eight tackles to go along with his two picks.
