NFL punter reveals he's been randomly selected for drug test after launching 81-yard preseason kick
NFL punter Blake Gillikin, a former Penn State player, is trying to make the roster for the New Orleans Saints ahead of the 2022 season.
He made a good case for himself on Friday against the Green Bay Packers, launching an incredible 81-yard punt.
Now, though, he’ll have to prove the 81-yard punt was legitimate. He took to Twitter on Sunday to reveal he had been “randomly” selected to take a drug test after the game:

Will we be seeing more 81-yard punts from Gillikin? We’ll see what happens when the Saints take the field for their next preseason game.
At least Gillikin has a good sense of humor about his not-so-random test.
