Welp, Floyd seems to love money more than his fans because according to reports he killed the idea himself, even though Showtime and CBS were on board with it.
Earlier this week, Hawks Mike Scott was arrested after being pulled over in the car with his brother and charged with possession of molly and weed.

The Seattle Seahawks should’ve run the ball. By now, we all know this. Just in case anyone forgot, Marshawn Lynch provided a reminder during his appearance on FXX’s The League.
