When the Cardinals released Michael Floyd in December, he was quickly claimed by the Patriots off waivers. It was noted by more than a few Floyd could end up benefiting greatly by making it too the Super Bowl. The Patriots, of course, are playing in the Super Bowl today. Floyd is in uniform — but only for warmups. Floyd is inactive for the game — Bill Belichick allowed all players to dress for warmups, even those inactive, just to allow them that experience.
Floyd didn’t play in the AFC Championship game either after being named inactive. He struggled in the lone playoff game he was in. Top Patriots beat writer Mike Reiss said it was a numbers game that kept Floyd from playing in the Super Bowl. He also said Floyd would like to re-sign with New England and that the Patriots have interest. We will see if that comes to pass — and also what market develops for Floyd after his rocky 2016 season.
UPDATE: But because Tom Brady is Tom Brady, Floyd did get a Super Bowl ring.
