Re: Random Drug Tests?

EVERY player is drug tested between 4/20 and the start of training camp. Call it random if you want.

yes. 4/20

The "random" portion of the testing is not who, but when. Every single player will get tested, but the time and date of the test is random.

Re: Random Drug Tests?

I recall Drew saying something about how it didn't feel random when they popped him for a test. The Saints just feel persecuted.

Brees was just making fun of the coincidence.

Drew Brees Gets Randomly Drug Tested After Saying He Wants to Play Until He's 45

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees can do nothing but laugh at the NFL's random drug-testing system after what happened this past week.

The 35-year-old said on Friday that he would like to play football for 10 more years, via NFL.com's Albert Breer:

No doubt. There's no question. I'm not getting ahead myself, like it's a pipe dream, at 45. I understand the challenges that come along with that. But why not? If I can stay healthy, and I'm having fun and playing at a high level, why wouldn't I wanna do that? The biggest challenge is physically, the maintenance, the recovery, the way you train. You gotta hope that you stay healthy, but why not?
In what may have been an odd coincidence, Brees was randomly drug tested over the weekend:

At least the veteran quarterback was able to get a good laugh out of the timing.

This isn't the first time that the NFL has had suspicious timing with a "random" drug test in the past year. Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee was randomly tested after making a big hit during a game last season.

It's not like each and every player isn't aware of it.
