The free agent wide receiver to be told ESPN on Feb. 2 that he hoped "to be back in Foxborough" with a new contract, but those odds now look very slim after he pled guilty Thursday to one count of extreme DUI. FOX 10's Jonathan Roy first reported the ruling.
Floyd was sentenced in Scottsdale City Court to a 120-day jail sentence. The sentence includes 24 days in county jail and 96 days of home detention. He must also complete 30 community service hours and pay a fine of $5,115.99. Floyd's other six counts, stemming from his December DUI arrest, were dismissed. He blew a .217 during the incident, qualifying as a "super extreme" violation in Arizona.
Floyd, 27, was inactive for the Patriots' Super Bowl 51 victory. He had 488 yards and five touchdowns on 37 receptions in 15 games this season for the Patriots and Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals waived Floyd shortly after his arrest. Floyd had his best season in 2013, when he had 1,054 yards and five scores on 66 receptions. He never eclipsed 1,000 yards in another season.
The Patriots have Floyd's rights until March. Floyd had been living in a hotel room three minutes away from the team's facility during the season.
Floyd was the No. 13 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. His deal with the Cardinals was for four-years and $9.9 million.
