Pa­tri­ots claim Floyd one day af­ter Car­di­nals re­lease him

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

FOXBOROUGH, MASS. | The New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots have claimed wide re­ceiver Michael Floyd off waivers one day af­ter he was re­leased by the Ari­zona Car­di­nals.

Floyd’s agent Brian Mur­phy con­firmed the move in an email.

Floyd, Ari­zona’s first-round draft pick in 2012, was re­leased by the team two days af­ter he was ar­rested on charges of driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence and fail­ure to obey a po­lice of­fi­cer.

The 6-foot-2 220-pound re­ceiver gives Tom Brady a big, ex­pe­ri­enced tar­get. Floyd was hav­ing a down sea­son but had five 100-yard re­ceiv­ing games last year. Floyd had 33 catches for 446 yards and four touch­downs with the Car­di­nals this sea­son, but had sev­eral crit­i­cal drops.
