On Sunday night, Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee laid the boom on Denver Broncos return man Trindon Holliday and today, walking into work, he finds out that he’s been subject to a ‘random’ drug test.

It could of course be nothing more than a coincidence, though, McAfee himself seemed a bit taken back by the ‘randomness’ of the request, suggesting the following in his Twitter post:

Guys… Make one random tackle… And end up on a “Random” steroid test.. Must be my bod

I can’t imagine the NFL would actually feel the need to test a kicker specifically due to a hit (which did just so happen to be helmet-to-helmet) though I have heard some strange things come out of the NFL offices, so I guess I wouldn’t be completely shocked if the actually did do that.

Also, completely different topic here – wonder if McAfee gets a fine from the league for the hit considering it was helmet-to-helmet?

Either way, I guess return men in the league now know, don’t mess with McAfee, son.

For those that missed the hit, FanSided’s own Jack Jorgensen has you covered.
