Michael Floyd better be telling the truth to his head coach after failing three self-administered breathalyzer tests.
The Minnesota Vikings receiver, who was on house arrest for a December DUI, claims that too much kombucha tea caused the failed tests in June. Head coach Mike Zimmer wants to give Floyd the benefit of the doubt, but if he finds out the receiver was just making up an excuse, he knows what to do.
“I said, ‘If I find out you’re lying to me, I’m going to cut you,'” Zimmer told Brian Murphy of the Pioneer Press about his warning to Floyd. “Do I believe it? I don’t know how much tea he drank. I have no clue …
“I don’t have any doubt why there’d be skepticism, but he told me that he wasn’t (drinking). That it was legit.”
After serving one day in jail on June 28, Floyd completed the remainder of his house arrest sentence. He is scheduled to join the Vikings for training camp beginning July 26, where he will compete to be a starting receiver.
