Floyd was arrested in his vehicle on Dec. 12 after police found him passed out in his car. He had a blood-alcohol level of .217 at the time of his arrest, upping the DUI charge to an extreme DUI charge.
Floyd was released by the Arizona Cardinals just two days after the arrest, and was claimed by the Patriots the following day. New England head coach Bill Belichick said they didn't know the severity of the DUI when they claimed him.
Including the playoffs, Floyd played in four games for the Patriots, catching a total of five passes for 51 yards and touchdown. He was inactive for the Super Bowl and will be a free agent when the new league year starts on March 9.
Floyd was arrested for a previous DUI on March 20, 2011 while he was at Notre Dame.Back to the New England Patriots Newsfeed
