In theory, NFL drug tests are administered randomly, but players never seem to buy that. Pat McAfee thought his 4/20 tweets were to blame, Earl Thomas boasted about his quick recovery from a bad injury and Chris Boswell was tested after he nailed six field goals in a game.
None of those are as a good a reason for a drug test as the one Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas gave the league this weekend.
Casillas even acknowledged that the hand-rolled cigar “looks like a blunt” and that he “probably shouldn’t have posted this” but he did anyway. The very next day, the league came knocking.
Casillas’s suspicions are misplaced, though. Offseason tests are for performance-enhancing drugs, not recreational ones. So he’s safe as long as that wasn’t an anabolic cigar.
