Cardinals release Floyd following DUI arrest


Michael Floyd has been released by the Arizona Cardinals following his DUI arrest on Monday.

Coach Bruce Arians had said he was disappointed in Floyd and that he would punish the wide receiver over the incident.

It was confirmed on Wednesday that the fifth-year receiver had been let go. 

Floyd has 33 receptions for 446 yards and four touchdowns this season. When asked on Monday to describe Floyd's play this season, Arians said, "very inconsistent."

Floyd's best season with the Cardinals came in 2013 when he caught 65 passes for 1,041 yards and five touchdowns. The 27-year-old had 242 career receptions for 3,739 yards and 23 touchdowns since the Cardinals selected the former Notre Dame receiver in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

To replace Floyd on the roster, the Cardinals signed wide receiver Jeremy Ross, a veteran who has spent time with seven NFL teams, including multiple stints with the Jets this season.
