Pat McAfee ‘randomly’ tested for steroids after leveling Trindon Holliday

Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck headlined Sunday night’s Denver-Indianapolis game, but it was kicker Pat McAfee who turned in the top moment of the game.

McAfee absolutely leveled Broncos return man Trindon Holliday on a kickoff. It’s not often that you see a kicker (or punter) lay down that kind of lumber, and the NFL is apparently worried that McAfee may be dablling in the juice.

Below is the letter sent to McAfee from the league, requesting for a random steroid test on Monday. McAfee shared it on Twitter.

    Holliday is the shortest guy in the league and probably the leanest so it’s not all that hard to believe that a punter could level him when he’s running wide open. Holliday doesn’t really have the burly body of a football player like other small runners in the league (Maurice Jones-Drew and Ray Rice)

    So he doesn’t get the “game ball” for that great hit? this is NFL FOOTBALL…right

    • bobby bobby

      sadly that doesn’t look like the case. For some reason he’s getting a drug test instead lol

    Random drug test. If he is guilty it should be overturned. This is not random. I am for drug testing but follow the rules

      Anyone familiar with Pat McAfee knows that he has always played with abandon. Would be really surprised to find drugs in that guy’s system.
