Odell Beckham Jr. Believes NFL Is Targeting Him For PED Tests

Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. believes he is being targeted by the league in the performance enhancing drug testing process, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. After Cleveland’s win on Thursday against the Steelers Beckham told reporters, “[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.”

The NFL would not respond specifically to Beckham’s accusation, per Cleveland.com, but NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy broadly denied the claims in a statement to the site. McCarthy pointed out that “Neither the union nor league are involved in the selection process.”

Beckham is not the first player to accuse the league of manipulating the PED testing process. Last season, safety Eric Reid accused the league of similar malfeasance. Reid had raised legal claims against the league alongside quarterback Colin Kaepernick in a collusion lawsuit and claimed the league was set on finding dirt on him. However, an official investigation found no wrongdoing by the league in Reid’s case.

In Beckham’s case, there is even less reason to believe the league would have any interest in wrongdoing. While Beckham has struggled this season, his first in Cleveland, he remains one of the league’s biggest celebrities and most popular players.

      Thank goodness you and I don’t post here constantly for that same reason…lol.

  1. The Ghost of Bobby Bonilla

    I’d test his teammate Myles who clearly has a Roid Rage problem.

    It is sad clowns like this are the most popular in the league. I don’t doubt his talent it is great his head is screwed on about 3 turns too tight and cut off blood to his brain. There are so many other WRs playing that don’t act like a fool that are as good or close to look up to. Fitzgerald is one of them that coming from a Seahawk fan. Always plays that game right not an issue on or off the field.

      People will look for any reason to hate. What has OBJ done… Is he like AB? Domestic violence? Forced a trade? Assault someone? Nope. The man has done NOTHING wrong. Let him be.

          A drama queen? Wow lock him up and throw away the key. If “drama queen” is the best you have then your reaching.

        He hasn’t done anything abhorrent in society, no. It doesn’t make him any less annoying.

      • Rondon

        He is AB, Jalen Ramsey, Levon Bell, 2.0- Another totally self absorbed ‘I burger with me sauce”, whose all about #1.
        Not hate. Fact.

        • amk3510

          He is not comparable to that lunatic AB. He didn’t force a trade like Ramsey, he wanted to stay put in NY. He didn’t hold out like Bell. Once again just more mindless hate because you simply don’t like him.
