Floyd was arrested for extreme DUI a year ago, and violated the terms of his house arrest and was sentenced to an extra day in jail. He had a blood alcohol level of.217 when he was arrested, and on February 17 he was sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days under house arrest.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd has been suspended for the first four games of the 2017 regular season.

Floyd was picked up by the New England Patriots late last season after the Arizona Cardinals released him following his arrest.

Michael Floyd's rocky National Football League career is trending back downward. He is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games and is scheduled to report to training camp July 26 in Mankato with the rest of Minnesota's veteran players.

Floyd is eligible to play in all preseason games and can return to the team after the October 1 game against the Detroit Lions.

Floyd signed a one-year deal with the Vikes in free agency. The Vikings supported Floyd's kombucha defense. I don't know how much tea he drank. "I have no clue", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told the Pioneer Press, recounting his discussion with Floyd after a series of failed self-administered Breathalyzer tests. Murphy added Floyd had passed "500-plus" tests prior to the failures and had missed the one test because he'd fallen asleep.

"I don't have any doubt why there'd be skepticism, but he told me that he wasn't (drinking)".
