Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd was having a disappointing season anyway.
Now, coach Bruce Arians is trying to figure out how best to punish him after Floyd’s DUI arrest after Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins.
During an interview with Alex Marvez and Bill Polian on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Arians said he was considering benching Floyd this week or other alternatives as allowed by the collective bargaining agreement with the NFLPA.
“Really nothing other than how disappointed I am in Mike,” Arians said when asked if he had any more details. “It set a bad example for those young fans out there. We talk about don’t be ‘The Guy.'”
Now, Floyd has become “The Guy,” and is about to become an example.
Floyd caught 52 passes for 849 yards last year, but has just 33 catches for 446 yards this year, which coupled with his second DUI arrest (along with one at Notre Dame), makes it a poor strategy for entering unrestricted free agency this offseason.
