Former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd is among those players who won't be able to play in Super Bowl LI between the Patriots and Falcons.

Floyd was waived by the Cardinals in December after being arrested on suspicion of extreme DUI. The Patriots claimed him off waivers several days later. 

Floyd caught four passes for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' regular-season finale, and he caught one pass for nine yards in the their divisional round playoff win over the Texans. But he was inactive for the AFC Championship Game between the Patriots and Steelers two weeks ago.

Reiss said the Patriots will attempt to re-sign Floyd, who is set to become a free agent after the season. "Look for both sides to get to the negotiating table in the offseason to work toward Floyd coming back to Foxboro in 2017," he wrote.

Floyd was the Cardinals' first-round draft pick in 2012. He caught 242 passes for 3,739 yards and 23 touchdowns as a Cardinal.
