Odell Beckham criticizes NFL’s “random” drug testing policy

Beckham wonders if random is really random

NFL: New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

For the “997,546th” time, Odell Beckham Jr. was recently selected to be a part of the NFL’s random drug testing policy.

In tweet, Beckham criticized the policy for how often he’s been “randomly” selected.

Later in the day, Beckham was in a better mood about the testing.

“I’m looking big! This is like performance-enhancing stuff. I pretty much get tested every week. I’ll just take it as a compliment,” he said.

It tends to be a running joke that players find “random” drug testing notices in their locker in the days after big games and it must be annoying to feel like tests are happening more often than what would be randomly expected.

At the same time, it’s not like these tests are happening in the middle of a practice and as the Wall Street Journal’s Jason Gay points out, it could be a lot worse.
