Drew Brees 'randomly' drug tested twice after '45' remarks

Drew Brees told reporters last week that he believes he could play until he’s 45 years old. Days later he was chosen for random drug testing twice. While the league would tell you that’s all coincidence, Brees isn’t so sure.

Lol indeed, Drew. Perhaps the NFL was looking for something, anything to distract fans from their disciplinary methods used elsewhere. Maybe if they could nab a big name taking some kind of performance enhancers, it could deflect what negative attention the league has received after it botched the Ray Rice suspension.

Of course, if you’re a real conspiracy theorist, you could tie this to the whole New Orleans Saints Bounty Gate episode from a few years ago. Or you could suggest the league still wants to stick it to the outspoken Brees, who has never shied from criticizing the league since the nasty lockout in 2011.

Any conspiracy theory, however, much acknowledge the fact that the league stands to make more money from Drew Brees playing football than from him getting suspended and tarnished. As juicy as such thinking can be, it’s simply not feasible. If the league is going to pander to a lesser star like Ray Rice after he beats his wife, then they’re going to do everything they can to keep the star quarterbacks in their league up and running.

In this case, it’s much wiser to assume random actually means random. Sorry, Drew. Hey, at least you weren’t juicing!
