There were two NFL DUI stories in the news over the past couple of days:
From Pro Football Talk:

Floyd faced seven charges, but the other six were dropped when he entered a guilty plea in Scottsdale on Thursday. Jonathan Roy of FOX 10 in Phoenix reports that Floyd was sentenced to 120 days in jail with 24 of those days to be served at a Maricopa County facility. The other 96 days of the sentence will be served via home detention.
Floyd also needs to do 30 hours of community service and was fined $5115.99.
and from TMZ:
NY Jets player Austin Seferian-Jenkins has cut a plea deal in his DUI case from last year and won’t spend any time behind bars … TMZ Sports has learned.
The 24-year-old tight end was arrested on September 23 in Florida after a cop pulled him over for a traffic stop and thought he seemed wasted. Dashcam footage from the incident showed him slurring.
According to court docs, Seferian-Jenkins pled no contest to a reckless driving charge and in exchange, got 1 year probation and 50 hours of community service.
He also has to attend DUI school and pay a $500 fine.
