Steven Jackson retired from the NFL in 2015.

On Thursday he said that he received an order for a random drug screening from the league. He has no plans to comply.

Jackson recently signed a one-day contract to retire with the Los Angeles Rams, whom he played for in St. Louis from 2004-12. That apparently was enough to trigger a drug test.

He’s just not here for the random drug test from a league he does not compete in any more.
