Many of you already know Michael Floyd was arrested for DUI last week and cut by the Arizona Cardinals a few days later. I was going to leave this one alone and not write about it, then the video of his arrest was released.

Michael Bidwill told the media that they released Michael Floyd because of his unwillingness to show any remorse and the way he handled the arrest.

The video of the incident was released by Scottsdale Police last night and it backs up what Bidwill says. Floyd looked very drunk and his explanation was terrible, he had no excuse for as drunk as he was to be driving. He told police that he had one glass of wine started drinking at 7 and finished at 8 but it was 3 a.m. in the morning when he was pulled over and you can tell he hadn't stopped drinking.  He also had a blood alcohol level of .217.

Floyd is an adult and should be held accountable for his actions. I feel the Cardinals handled the situation well and I wish him the best but I'm glad that they cut him. It sets a precedent that the Cardinals are not willing to put up with this sort of off-the-field activity.

Floyd was signed by the New England Patriots. Cardinal fans are now upset because he was sent to a Super Bowl contender. But don't forget he has had a sub par season and I don't think he helps the Patriots very much.
