Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd complained of racial discrimination at his alma mater of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, early Saturday morning.

Floyd, who was the Cardinals' first-round NFL Draft pick in 2012 and is one of the team's top players on offense, said on Twitter that he was "slammed on (the) ground" and cuffed by South Bend police for something he didn't do.

Floyd later deleted the tweets.

Floyd caught 52 passes for 849 yards and six touchdowns as a Cardinal last season. He has missed just one game in his four-year NFL career.
