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.
Walkin in today to my 997,546 “””RANDOM””” PED drug test today. It’s actually funny how I “randomly” get tested every other week. Dear @NFL please stop sending these people, ur takin away from meeting times and film... thanks #ThisAintWhatYaLookinFor #ThisIsBeyondMeeeee— Odell Beckham Jr (@obj) September 20, 2018
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.
