The NFL season has concluded and let the perp walk continue unabated.
Yet another blight on the league’s terrible history with the courts came to fruition, as New England Patriots veteran wide receiver Michael Floyd pleaded guilty to extreme DUI and was sentenced to 120 days in jail, according to a tweet from Jonathan Roy of Fox10.

The sentence will include Floyd spending 24 days in Maricopa County Jail, and the remaining 96 days on house arrest. Floyd will also need to complete 30 hours of community service and pay a $5,115.99 fine.
After being arrested for the DUI, Floyd was released by the Arizona Cardinals and subsequently signed by the Patriots the following day. The 27-year-old, fifth-year veteran was part of the team’s Super Bowl-winning roster, but was inactive during the AFC Championship Game and Super Bowl.
Floyd, who caught 37 passes for 446 yards and five TDs in 15 total games with the Pats and Cards, is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this spring.
