On Saturday, Colts punter Pat McAfee was once again the team’s best player. In Indy’s preseason debut against the Bills, McAfee punted five times for an average of 58.6 yards per punt, with one punt being pinned inside the 20 yard line and two going for touchbacks. McAfee’s longest punt of the day was an impressive 67-yard kick.
Naturally, he was “randomly” drug tested today.

Of course, if you’ve followed along with the NFL’s drug testing in recent years you’ll come to understand that it certainly doesn’t seem to be “random” like the league claims it is. For instance:
The day after Pat McAfee laid out Broncos returner Trindon Holliday on a kick return in 2013, he was randomly drug tested.
Guys... Make one random tackle... And end up on a "Random" steroid test.. Must be my bod #UpperBodyOfAnAdolescent pic.twitter.com/s9B7LrS89Y— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) October 21, 2013
The day after McAfee tweeted about 4⁄20 earlier this year, he was randomly drug tested:

The day after Adam Vinatieri hit a 53-yard field goal in the team’s Wild Card win over the Bengals in January 2015, he was randomly drug tested.
When u're closer to 60 than 20 & bang a 53 yarder 3/4 of the way up the upright..This type of thing is expected #GOAT pic.twitter.com/5fq2HtKqi5— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) January 5, 2015
And the day after 40-year old quarterback Matt Hasselbeck won his fourth straight game as the Colts’ starting quarterback last year, he was randomly drug tested.
