ESPN's Mike Reiss believes the Patriots re-signing free agent Michael Floyd is a "long shot" after the addition of Brandin Cooks.
Sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days of home detention as a result of his in-season extreme DUI, Floyd hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest. With Cooks added to the mix in New England, there doesn't appear to be room for Floyd. ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein thinks Floyd could make sense in Detroit. Mar 24 - 11:00 AM

ESPN's Mike Reiss believes the Patriots could be interested in bringing back free agent Michael Floyd, but only at the right price.

Reiss believes the Patriots value Floyd's "physical presence," though his questionable chemistry with Tom Brady raised red flags. Floyd didn't grasp New England's offense as quickly as the team hoped, which led to him being a healthy scratch for the last two playoff games. It probably won't cost much to keep Floyd, which could work to the Patriots' advantage. But if Floyd's price rises, it's doubtful New England would get in a bidding war. Floyd is currently serving a 120-day jail sentence following his second DUI.
Feb 26 - 8:52 AM

Impending free agent Michael Floyd pled guilty to one count of extreme DUI Thursday in Scottsdale City Court.

The other six counts were dismissed. Floyd will serve a 120-day jail sentence, including 24 days in county jail and 96 days of home detention. He also must complete 30 hours of community service and pay a $5,115.99 fine. It's not a worst case scenario for Floyd, but it's pretty close. There was no way he was going to avoid jail time after blowing a .217. Coming off a down year, Floyd's free agent prospects aren't looking good.
Feb 17 - 2:08 PM

Michael Floyd is among the Patriots' inactives for Super Bowl 51.

Floyd struggled against the Texans in the Divisional Round and was declared inactive for New England's final two games. An impending free agent, Floyd turned 27 a little over two months ago. He may have to settle for one-year, prove-it contract offers on the open market. The rest of the Patriots' Super Bowl inactives are CB Cyrus Jones, CB Justin Coleman, OT LaAdrian Waddle, RB D.J. Foster, QB Jacoby Brissett, and S Jordan Richards.
Feb 5 - 4:34 PM

According to ESPN Patriots reporter Michael Reiss, "barring an unexpected change," Michael Floyd will be inactive for Super Bowl LI against the Falcons.

He'll be a healthy scratch for the second game in a row. Floyd has shown very little since joining the Patriots in Week 15 and isn't needed now that Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell are both healthy. The 27-year-old has had a massively disappointing contract year and could be facing jail time following a December DUI arrest. It could be a quiet free agent market for the former first-rounder.
Feb 5 - 10:31 AM

Impending free agent Michael Floyd hopes to re-sign with the Patriots.

"I hope to be back in Foxborough," Floyd said Thursday. "I love it here. I hope that I can make that happen, for sure." It's not exactly surprising, but free agents to be often adopt softer, more diplomatic tones. The feeling may not be mutual, as the Pats will receive a compensatory draft pick if they let Floyd walk. Floyd was a healthy scratch for the AFC Championship Game. Still only 27, the former first-rounder definitely still has upside.

Patriots WR Michael Floyd is a healthy scratch for the AFC Championship Game.

Floyd was dreadful in last week's win over the Texans, and is paying the price with everything on the line for the Patriots this evening. Malcolm Mitchell is active, and should return to his pre-Floyd snaps/usage level.
Jan 22 - 5:14 PM

Michael Floyd caught 1-of-3 targets for nine yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Texans.

Floyd started in three-receiver sets with Malcolm Mitchell (knee) inactive, but we wouldn't be surprised to see Mitchell back in there next week. Floyd's first target bounced off his hands and to Texans CB A.J. Bouye, while a third-quarter Floyd drop nearly got Tom Brady intercepted again. Floyd was also flagged for offensive pass interference midway through the third quarter. Albeit long on talent, Floyd is nothing if not inconsistent.
Jan 14 - 11:53 PM

Michael Floyd caught 3-of-4 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

Floyd's biggest box-score impact came on a 14-yard touchdown catch. His biggest on-field impact came on a vicious open-field block that sprung Julian Edelman for a 77-yard touchdown. Floyd has always been one of the NFL's top blocking wideouts. He will be a key role player during New England's playoff run.
Jan 1 - 5:23 PM

Impending free agent WR Michael Floyd could face 180 days in jail if he is convicted on DUI charges.

Floyd reportedly blew a .217 when he was arrested for DUI in mid-December. That qualifies as a "super extreme" violation in Arizona, which carries a 45-day jail sentence for a first offense and a 180-day sentence for a second offense. Floyd has had alcohol-related issues with the law in the past, so it is possible the courts rule this a second offense. Floyd's first hearing is February 24, which is just over a week before free agency begins.

Michael Floyd is expected to be one of the Patriots' top-three wide receivers in Sunday's Week 17 game at Miami.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is not expected to play, Julian Edelman's snaps have been in weekly descent as he's being limited ahead of the postseason, and the Patriots are expected to "monitor" Martellus Bennett's playing time against the Dolphins. Albeit with lots of risk, Floyd is suddenly worthy of dart-throw consideration in DFS and especially deep leagues that extend into Week 17. The Dolphins will be without top CB Byron Maxwell (ankle) on Sunday.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 01:20:00 PM

Michael Floyd played 18-of-75 offensive snaps in his Patriots' debut Saturday against the Jets.

He was on the field for 24 percent of the Patriots' plays. He was out-snapped by fellow wide receivers Chris Hogan (64 snaps), Malcolm Mitchell (58) and Julian Edelman (36). All but two of Floyd's snaps came in the second half with the game well in hand. Floyd's role should increase as he becomes more familiar with the Patriots' offense, but he's still a distant fourth on the depth chart behind Edelman, Mitchell and Hogan.
Sun, Dec 25, 2016 09:44:00 AM

Michael Floyd corralled one-of-two targets for six yards Saturday in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Jets.

Floyd drew an end zone target early in the game but couldn’t reel it in. He wasn’t heard from again until the fourth quarter when he hauled in a six-yarder from backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Still new to New England’s system, it’s unlikely that Floyd will carve any kind of meaningful role this season. Floyd and the Patriots will close out the regular season next week against Miami.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 04:32:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Michael Floyd will be active Week 16 against the Jets.

Schefter reports he will likely play a limited role, which makes sense considering he was claimed off waivers barely more than a week ago. Floyd does not carry any fantasy value, and he does not affect the value of Julian Edelman, Malcolm Mitchell, or even Chris Hogan.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 08:55:00 AM

Bill Belichick said the team was not aware of Michael Floyd's blood alcohol concentration when they claimed him off waivers last week.

Floyd BAC was reportedly .217 when he was arrested for DUI last week. Arizona has different DUI classifications, and Floyd's BAC falls into the "super extreme" category. That charge comes with a minimum of 45 days in jail. The Patriots might be upset Floyd was not more forthcoming about what he is facing, but there are no indications they plan to cut him at this point. Floyd is a free agent after this season.
