Judge allows Vikings newest receiver to remove his ankle bracelet for OTA’s

Michael Flioyd will not have to wear his ankle bracelet during OTA’s

Michael Floyd the newest Minnesota Vikings wide receiver should not be too hard to spot walking out of the Vikings facility. If you do not know what he looks like all you had to do is look at his ankle. He would have had a very ugly State owned Ankle Bracelet, which monitors his whereabouts.  Well Floyd will not have to wear it during OTA’s now, according to TMZ Sports. 

In court documents obtained by TMZ Sports, Floyd argued … “Due to the high impact sport, attempting to run and high velocity tackling, the ankle device itself could be damaged and more importantly cause severe damage to the [Floyd’s] ankle resulting in possible broken bones.”

The judge agreed — removed the ankle device — and instead ordered him to submit to random breath testing on a GPS-enabled device.
