Michael Floyd pleads guilty to extreme DUI

Wide receiver Michael Floyd has pleaded guilty to extreme DUI to settle the criminal case related to his December arrest in Arizona.

Floyd faced seven charges, but the other six were dropped when he entered a guilty plea in Scottsdale on Thursday. Jonathan Roy of FOX 10 in Phoenix reports that Floyd was sentenced to 120 days in jail with 24 of those days to be served at a Maricopa County facility. The other 96 days of the sentence will be served via home detention.

Floyd also needs to do 30 hours of community service and was fined $5115.99.

Floyd was cut by the Cardinals shortly after the arrest and finished out the year with the Patriots. He played two regular season games and a playoff game for New England before the team scratched him in the AFC title game and the Super Bowl.

Floyd will be a free agent in March unless he signs with the Patriots and will likely be facing a league suspension of at least two games as a result of his guilty plea.

    “Doubt the patriots want him”…but yet they picked him up…

  4. patsfan says: Feb 17, 2017 2:18 PM

    Well, he has taken responsibility for his actions. Now he needs to work on (or continue to work on) making real changes.

  5. sdelmonte says: Feb 17, 2017 2:19 PM

    What are the fines based on?

  6. ftblfan9 says: Feb 17, 2017 2:26 PM

    I think the Patriots are still in the hunt for him. They thought enough of him to pay him $1.3 million for the few games he played and/or was inactive. With the plea, a large uncertainty is removed. He seems to be an ideal 1 year contract so that he can prove himself to other teams. We’ll see.

    patriots tried him out but he didn’t do much. Ran a rounded off route and almost had the ball picked off. Sayonara.

  10. patriotsivan says: Feb 17, 2017 2:40 PM

    Is make no difference. At end of day, Patriots will build greatest wall of championship trophy Lombardi and will make Jets fans PAY for it. Just like NFL best owner and kind human being to all, glory of Robert Kraft!

    Patriots do everything extreme.

    Extreme comebacks
    Extremely good looking QBs
    Extreme Gronking

    And Extreme drinking in parked cars.

  12. deneb1973 says: Feb 17, 2017 2:41 PM

    Seems like he wanted this out of the way before the draft so the NFL might levy punishment quickly to let teams know what his punishment will be. Unfortunately that assumes he will get in no further trouble. Since the Pats have already taken the publicity hit, I bet they sign him to a one year contract with personal conduct conditions- a contract that pay him as he is available and waits to see if he performs off the field. Maybe next year Goodell will hand him the MVP trophy.

  13. carpalboss says: Feb 17, 2017 2:42 PM

    Okay….there’s this really neat APP that all these NFL players should get….It’s call UBER. For a minimal fee, your name never appears on PFT headlines with the letters DUI.

  14. redclaw1314 says: Feb 17, 2017 2:45 PM

    it would be commendable for the Patriots to give him a chance to make positive changes in is life and his career

    Perfect Patriot

  16. dtm1088 says: Feb 17, 2017 2:52 PM

    One of the main reasons the Patriots picked him up in the first place was for the compensatory pick when they lose his to Free Agency. (His court issues may throw a monkey wrench in that)Not saying they don’t want him back, just saying a lot of reasons went into that signing.

  17. djvh2 says: Feb 17, 2017 2:53 PM

    DUI needs to be taken seriously. The NFL suspends guys for longer periods for using pot while at home. DUI could take someones life or cause serious injuries.

  18. 345snarkavenue says: Feb 17, 2017 2:55 PM

    this is the first step in the right direction, with many more that need to follow. whether he remains a Patriot or ends up with another team, I wish him well.

    At least this isn’t a guy who commits murder or domestic violence or other violent felonies backed by some other NFL teams.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Patriots did not pay him $1.3. The Cardinals paid most of it in game checks while he was on their roster. Patriots had him for 3 regular season games. Then he gets paid for the playoffs but that is somewhere between $150K – $175K.

    Not Goodell’s fault nor is it Bidwell’s fault.

    I 100% guarantee that PFT/ESPN will blame Goodell/Bidwell for not watching Floyd’s every move in life to ensure that he stays out of trouble (and then write stories about how they are “stalkers” and should allow adult players to live their own lives, make their own decisions, etc)

    Floyd is an idiot.

  43. harrisonhits2 says: Feb 17, 2017 3:58 PM

    “What are the fines based on?”

    Believe they are based on a percentage of the player’s salary.

    One of the many scummy things Goodell often does is fine players are over the maximum based on the percentage, knowing that when the player appeals it will have to be cut back because the league cannot fine them greater than the percentage specified in the CBA, and knowing that its likely to be cut to the maximum fine instead of being cut to less than that.

    “Patriot Way”

    SMH no its not actually.

    With the exception of Hernandez who was an anomaly, the Pats have had among the least players arrested of any team in the league since Belichick took over.

    And admittedly Hernandez was a big mistake. He is a total scumbag and paying the price for what he did. It must be hell for him to be in there and watch the Pats win 2 Super Bowls he could have been a part of. A well deserved hell.

  47. 345snarkavenue says: Feb 17, 2017 4:03 PM

    Nah, that’s winning 5 championships, more titles than any NFL team in the last 34 years, more games this century than any NFL team, being the home of the greatest and winningest QB of all time, the greatest coach of all time, being the home of the greatest fanbase in football as proven beyond any shadow of a doubt by a recent study, being the paragon of excellence in the modern NFL and if you’re not in denial, also being the paragon of excellence in any sport at any time.

    How does it feel to be an inferior fan of an inferior team compared to that?

    An offer to Floyd will likely depend more than anything on the team’s ability to get Amendola to re-do his deal.

  52. mkreef says: Feb 17, 2017 4:14 PM

    He was good insurance when WR ranks were depleted. Everyone back healthy (mitchell, amendola) for last 2 games, floyd inactive

    Worth if for that Miami TD run and that block, as well as the Julio Jones role he played in practice for SB. But I would be *shocked* if NE picked him up.

    What is the “Patriot Way” bs. First of all he was a cardinal when he committed his transgressions. During his time as Patriot he was a model citizen and performed well given that he had not training camp with the team. He made a mistake and he admitted it. Praying for you Mike.

  61. kissbillsrings says: Feb 17, 2017 4:25 PM

    Pats probably encouraged him to man up & face his consequences….
    They will probably sign him to a 1 year prove it deal knowing he’ll get a suspension….
    I think the Pats liked him but he needs more time to gel with Brady before he Sees major action…. Get this bad situation behind him & focus on his future….playing with the Pats will only help him even if it’s for a year & he moves on or decides to stay longer if both sides like what they see…..
    Wish him the best!!! Go Pats!!?
    Ps: the clowns crying above about the Patriot way need to understand that all this happened when he was with AZ…. He’s been a model guy w/Pats….

    For all you Patriot haters and trolls out there. The Patriots cut Hernandez the day he was charged with his crimes. He was and is a scumbag but the Patriots did the right thing cutting him.
    There are other teams who build statues to scumbags who commit crimes. For instance the Baltimore Ravens and then the NFL network hires him. Go figure.

    It’s amazing how people can post on the internet but can’t seem to look anything up on it. Floyd was paid $6,028,236 by AZ and $1,291764. Playoff shares are paid by the league. He was brought in as injury insurance with Gronkowski on IR, Amendola and Mitchell missing games and Hogan dinged up the cupboard was bare and they also needed a punt returner.

    I guess you politically correct dweebs never drank and drove in your lives? Just drink tea, do you?

    I have several co-workers who have crashed cars while technically DUI, destroyed property, but not hurt anyone, and they paid their fines and punishment, and later woke up and straightened themselves out, and were fine for the rest of their adult lives.

    Baffles me that any NFLer still gets DUIs. Why don’t teams have a couple of guys on staff just to be on-call for safe rides? Doesn’t do much in off-season when players live elsewhere but there’s absolutely no excuse for in-season DUI (from the team’s standpont; of course I don’t condone off season DUI).

    For the cost of less than 60k/year, teams and players would save themselves a lot of money and grief.

    The Patriot way……does that include Dontae Hightower of hit and run while drunk fame? Notice a pattern snowflakes? Of course you don’t Gomer the Homer is blind to the Patriot way…
    ===================

    The 60 something year old that acts like a 6 year old is calling others blind homers while he blindly an inaccurately trolls, that’s rich. Dont’a Hightower has never had a run in with the law. You are probably referring to Donte Stallworth who played 4 years with the Saints and one year each with Philly and NE prior to signing with Cleveland playing a season then having a fatal OUI accident. BTW, Stallworth did not flee the scene or use his wealth to beat the rap, he manned up. Something an anonymous internet tough guy like you will never have to do. But do keep insulting your betters with your inaccurate drivel, it entertains us “ad noseum.”

    Who did Donta Hightower hit Mr Football? When you’re blind with hatred and jealousy, it’s hard to keep the facts straight. Lyin’ drooly.

    I’m not sure they want him either. I think they kicked the tires to see if they could have a lucky bonus for their playoff push. And his first game in included 2 good plays. But the game after that had mistakes and drops. Whatever they saw there and of course in practice they appeared to decide that their existing roster was better to go with because he was a healthy scratch the rest of the way. Granted Mitchell returned about then but they still could have made room if they though they needed him I think now they will just coast and see how things unfold. The factors will be the suspension and the interest level from other teams. If someone else wants to write a nice check to grab him the pats will take the comp pick. If no one is interested and Goodell isnt in the one year susp or something mood they might see if he wants to play for a modest salary. Or if nothing comes together right they can always cut him loose later.

    As far as all these morality comments thats nonsense. If a team out there likes the player/price they will sign him in a heartbeat. And if thats the team any of these negative posters happen to root for they will completely reverse themselves and be in favor of him playing.

    Baffles me that any NFLer still gets DUIs. Why don’t teams have a couple of guys on staff just to be on-call for safe rides? Doesn’t do much in off-season when players live elsewhere but there’s absolutely no excuse for in-season DUI (from the team’s standpont; of course I don’t condone off season DUI).

    For the cost of less than 60k/year, teams and players would save themselves a lot of money and grief.

    ______________________

    The NFLPA has an anonymous safe rides app that it developed in partnership with Uber. It replaced the NFL’s ride safe program to protect the players privacy. You can give someone all the tools in the world but it doesn’t do any good if they won’t use them, whether that someone is a ’12’ that can’t do a moment of research or a player that can’t be bothered with an app.

    I stand corrected it was a Stallworth , but snowflakes he was a Patriot. Chuckle…60. If you want to insult someone you really need to bring more than that dangerous cupcake….best stay in the kitchen behind moms apron.

    Spikes? How could anyone be that dumb? That’s even worse than crossing up Donte with Dont’a. Spikes was cut the day after the incident and 4 years before it was even adjudicated. He was also not charged with an OUI.

    Bill can dry him out and get him at a discount. Let him back up Mitchell.

  95. kissmytaintpatriotswinagain says: Feb 17, 2017 6:31 PM

    To all the people saying the Patriots will sign him too a one year contract. Its not going to happen, if they sign him it will be for two years with a team option for year two. Thats how they role with the problem children, then they can either cut and run on the player or get them cheap for year two.

  96. tedmurph says: Feb 17, 2017 6:36 PM

    I’m sure drooly said Hightower on purpose. So he could bait people ad noseum. Tool.

    If rehabilitation is a real concept then give him another chance. If not, stop pretending.

  98. getyourownname says: Feb 17, 2017 7:03 PM

    Speaking of convictions, funny how Pats fans have forgotten about Aqib Talib.

    And funny how they immediately invoke the “but give him a chance to see if he’s reformed”- which I think is the right approach – yet never consider doing thay for players on other teams.

    And hiw they still invoke “murder” for Ray Lewis who, for his various faults, did not actually do that. Maybe it’s a Trump thing. Fake news and all.

    “DUI needs to be taken seriously. The NFL suspends guys for longer periods for using pot while at home. DUI could take someones life or cause serious injuries.
    ———————

    What about pot while driving?

    I don’t disagree, but please stop acting like the guys toking, don’t also drive.

    Enough with the high horse mentality. If this was some other team not named NE, you wouldn’t even comment.”

    What are you talking about? I specifically said guys using pot at home. Of course nobody should drive while under the influence, since it is DUI (the act or crime of driving while affected by alcohol or drugs). Whether or not you do kill or injure someone shouldn’t matter, you accept that risk for not caring enough about other people to be responsible.
    Also, sorry to disappoint you, but I couldn’t care less if it’s NE or some other team (well, maybe I would troll the Vikings). Not all of us hate NE, I actually respect them a lot and wish my team (Packers) had their coaching staff.

    My take? He was really drunk, not cool to get behind the wheel of a car.

  101. mtsquad says: Feb 17, 2017 7:14 PM

    He admitted his guilt, which with your average person with an alcohol issue is rare. He’s getting punished the NFL should butt out of this. They really need to just worry about what happens on the field.
    Hopefully Floyd will pursuing get the help he needs and become a better person. That’s all any of us can do or hope for.

    I was trying to take a stab at who the drool guy meant when he accused a Patriot of hit and run. It was a bit of a surreal statement so there was no perfect match. Spike’s infraction was as close as I could come. Its also really not a bad guess regardless of when they cut him. I think your intention was to make yourself feel smart by calling others dumb is why you didnt get the whole picture before name calling. Who knows, you might be smart too, but what you showed here is that in your own heart you dont believe it which has to be tough. Sorry man.

    Whatever the NFL does or doesnt do should be consistent with how they handled other cases. I get your point that the NFL might not have it totally worked out when they should butt in or butt out of some of these (I favor staying out and letting it be the court’s job IMHO) but their bigger oroblem is just learning to have consistency in what they do.

  112. dwoofer says: Feb 18, 2017 10:41 AM

    This prosecutor’s office in Scottsdale let him off the hook. A 2nd offense Super Extreme DUI in Arizona is supposed to carry a 6-month jail term.

    Maybe the prosecutor who cut him a break is a Pats fan.

    I too was referring to the drooling one. As in he might be dumb enough to confuse Donte, Dont’a and/or Spikes as all being one in the same. Not attempting to denigrate you for trying to decipher/poke fun at what might be going through the warped hate filled mind of a troll. Sorry you took personal offense where none was meant.
