Josh Norman calls NFL’s postgame drug testing ‘stupid’ after being chosen

Sunday September 18th, 2016

After a 27–23 loss to Dallas on Sunday, Redskins corner Josh Norman was selected by the NFL for a postgame drug test. He was not happy about it.

According to Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Norman was heard screaming in the locker room, and called the mandate “stupid.”

“I don't like how the NFL has us drug test right after the game,” Norman said of the rule, which he told reporters was new. “I don’t understand that. It’s crazy. I don’t have anything left in the tank, yet they want you to drug test. It’s crazy. I don’t understand it.”

“What’s a day going to do? 24 hours? It’s stupid."

Norman was switched on to cover Dez Bryant in the fourth quarter of the game, and finished with four tackles and a forced fumble.
