Odell Beckham Jr. believes the NFL is targeting him for performance-enhancing drug (PED) tests.
Beckham told reporters after the Browns defeated the Steelers on Thursday night, “[The NFL] made me come in Monday when we had an off day. Had a drug test… Made me come in Thursday after the game. Had another drug test.”
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy denied the claims in a statement, saying “Neither the union nor league are involved in the selection process.”
Last season, Panthers safety Eric Reid accused the league of a similar problem. He believed the league was trying to find dirt on him in response to his collusion lawsuit with Colin Kaepernick. An official investigation found no wrongdoing.
Beckham, one of the league’s most popular players, has struggled this season. He’s caught 48 passes on 89 targets for 692 yards and one touchdown.
