 Eagles star AJ Brown mocks Roger Goodell after he’s forced to take random drug test following 3-TD game

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver AJ Brown had a career day after scoring scoring three touchdowns Sunday, and the next day he mocked the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Twitter for making him get a random drug test.

"I would have a drug test this morning huh lol Rogerrrrr this is not random @NFL,” Brown said on Monday.

The results of Brown’s test are not known at this time, as results can take up to a 24 to 48 hours depending on how the drug test is taken.


The NFL’s policy for drug testing and performance-enhancing substances states that each week during the regular season, a total of 10 players from each club (even practice squad player’s) are randomly selected by a computer program.

The NFL implemented a drug testing policy during the beginning of 1987, but didn’t start handing out suspensions to players until the 1989 season.
Nicknamed the "Swole Batman,” Brown was just physically dominant against the Steelers secondary. Along with his three touchdowns, Brown recorded six catches for 156 receiving yards to give an undefeated 7-0 Eagles team a 34-14 victory over the Steelers.

The former Ole Miss Rebels receiver now has 39 receptions, 659 receiving yards, and five touchdowns through seven games for the Eagles.

Brown is now also the first Eagles player with three receiving touchdowns of 25+ yards in a game since Ben Hawkins in 1969, according to CBS Sports.

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was livid when the NFL drug tested him three times in four weeks during his dominant 2021 season.

He recorded eight tackles, two sacks, two quarterback hits, two tackles for a loss, one pass defended, and a 35-yard interception return for a touchdown.

A day after, he said he received a text from the league saying he needed to complete a drug test.

I'm curious, what % of the players get tested each week?  And do PS players, role players, guys that don't see many snaps, etc. get tested as well?  It seems like it's not random, but that's because you only hear complaints when guys who had great weeks get tested.  If Gardner Minshew was tested you'd never hear about it because nobody cares.


Also, unrelated, but AJ could break the single season TD receiving record for the Eagles.  IIRC, TO has the record for most TD receptions in a season at 14. Swole batman is on pace for 12. If he picks up the pace a little he might be able to get that record?
