Odell Beckham Jr. is sick of losing and frustrated with seemingly being asked to take tests every other week by the NFL for performance-enhancers. Beckham tweeted about the tests Thursday before the Giants (0-2) practiced for Sunday’s game in Houston against the Texans (0-2).

Beckham’s argument against the test’s randomness would have made more sense if he had a huge game in Week 2. Instead, he had just four receptions for 51 yards and no touchdowns. It wasn’t exactly an eye-opening, “he needs to be tested” kind of performance.

Under the 2018 NFL Policy on Performance Enhancing Substances, the program is run by an independent administrator. A computer randomly picks up to 10 players a week to be tested.

Players may have their urine and/or blood tested a maximum of 24 times annually for reasonable cause. Offseason tests are limited to a maximum of six urine and/or blood tests per player.

As much as Beckham is upset about it, the program was set up in collective bargaining between the league and the NFL Players Association.

Beckham, a fifth-year receiver out of LSU, signed in August a five-year extension with the Giants worth $65 million guaranteed, making him the NFL’s highest-paid receiver. He had more than 1,000 yards receiving in his first three seasons with 4,586 yards with 38 touchdowns in his career.
