    Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals following a Dec. 12 DUI arrest, says he's thankful New England gave him a second chance in the NFL. 

    "You only have a certain amount of chances," Floyd said, while addressing reporters in the lockerroom. "It's about learning from that mistake. I couldn't be in a better position now with this team. The guys that they have around here, just keeping me focused." 

    Floyd was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona in the early-morning hours of Dec. 12. Body-cam video released by Scottsdale Police this week shows Floyd appearing unresponsive as police approach his Cadillac Escalade after they observed the vehicle stopped at a green traffic light. 

    A reporter asked Floyd why he chose to drive in such a condition and he said, "It's a choice and all I can do is learn from that and move forward."
