The Cardinals kicked Michael Floyd off the team in December after his extreme DUI arrest, and he didn't play in Super Bowl LI on Sunday.

But that didn't stop the wide receiver from celebrating with his new team.

Floyd, who was inactive for Sunday's Super Bowl matchup between the Patriots and Falcons, was part of the reception line as the Lombardi Trophy was marched down the field following New England's come-from-behind overtime win.

Floyd, a Notre Dame alum, also got a shoutout from his alma mater after the win.

Floyd, whom the Cardinals selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, was claimed off waivers by the Patriots just days after the Cards released him in mid-December.

He caught a touchdown pass in New England's regular-season finale and caught one pass for nine yards in their divisional round game vs. Houston, but he didn't take the field in the Super Bowl or the AFC Championship game.

Nonetheless, Floyd has gotten himself a Super Bowl ring -- the same ring his former teammate Larry Fitzgerald continues to chase.

No one ever said sports are fair.
