We don't usually put much stock in spring puff pieces, but there's been a buzz about Cardinals WR Michael Floyd over the past couple weeks.  QB Carson Palmer recently added to that.  “The way Mike Floyd is playing just jumped out at me," Palmer said.  “I have very high expectations for Mike this year."  Floyd broke out for a 65-1,041-5 line last year.  Just entering his 3rd NFL season, he's capable of even more in 2014.

Free agent WR Michael Floyd pled guilty to 1 count of extreme DUI and was sentenced to 120 days of jail. Just 24 of those will be served in an actual prison, with the other 96 home detention. It's all lost training time for the 27-year-old, though. Between the legal issue and a disastrous 2016 season, Floyd will likely need to settle for a 1-year deal on the open market.

The Patriots claimed WR Michael Floyd on waivers. If there's a team that can get Floyd's career turned around, it's the Pats. He won't make a fantasy impact this season, but we'll be curious to see if New England signs him to a deal before he hits free agency in March.

The Cardinals have released WR Michael Floyd. It's a fitting end to a disastrous contract season. Floyd dropped too many passes, tallied just 446 yards and was arrested for DUI earlier this week. He's still only 27 with a 6'2 frame and a 1,000-yard season on his resume, so work won't be hard to find. J.J. Nelson figures to operate as Arizona's #2 WR the rest of the way. He's a boom/bust WR3 for this Sunday's game against the Saints.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said Tuesday that he's checking the CBA for disciplinary options for WR Michael Floyd and might just bench him this weekend. Floyd was arrested and charged with DUI on Monday morning. He obviously shouldn't be in your Week 15 fantasy plans. If he ends up inactive, J.J. Nelson figures to assume #2 WR duties in a plus matchup against the Saints. WR John Brown remains limited by his sickle-cell related leg issues.

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was arrested and charged with DUI early Monday morning. He was reportedly found asleep at the wheel of his car. On top of the DUI, he's also charged with obstructing a roadway and failure to obey a police officer. This is Floyd's 2nd drunk-driving arrested after he was popped for DUI while at Notre Dame back in 2011. He's likely looking at a suspension from the league, although it might not come until next season. This incident is just another ding against Floyd as he hits free agency this offseason.
