Hopefully, the Michael Floyd saga is over.

It took less than two months for the Michael Floyd saga with the Arizona Cardinals to play out, yet it seems like it is finally over.

Floyd talked last week about how surprised he was to receive some backlash after he tweeted out a picture of himself kissing the Lombardi Trophy.

His response caused... More responses and questions.

Well, Floyd responded again, which should hopefully put a bow on this entire situation on ESPN Radio:

“Random people just say the most crazy things, probably most of them were Arizona people,” he said. “They just think I’m not sorry for what I did, or I disrespected Arizona. All I can say is I made a mistake. I’m sorry for what I did. I’m moving forward. I think some people didn’t want me to be successful. I think that’s just life. I think there are a lot of people out there that don’t want people to succeed. You just have to make the best of it. For me, I got on a team that loved me and I was actually successful.”

“I made a dumb decision to drive,” Floyd said. “I thought I was OK and I fell asleep and I think the whole world knows what happened after that. It’s a dumb decision by an individual, you learn from it and move on.”

Good luck to Floyd moving forward, wherever he ends up in the NFL.
