NFL Kicker ‘Randomly’ Drug Tested After Kicking Game Winning Field Goal

Jaguars kicker Matthew Wright isn’t too upset over a random drug test request.

Wright nailed a 53 yard game-winning field goal for the Jacksonville Jaguars this past weekend to end their 20 game losing streak. A few minutes prior to the game winner, Wright made an attempt from 54 yards out that snuck right through the uprights.

Wright to took to Social media to share the text message he received following the game.

Following the big win, Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer announced Wright will be the team’s starting kicker for the rest of the season.

“We are actually going to meet on, today, roster, whatever movements we have. But obviously, Matt’s earned the right to be the starting kicker right now,” Meyer said, via Sports Illustrated.

If getting a drug test means winning games, I’d bet he’d be willing to get one after each and every game.

The NFL’s “Random” testing is pretty funny.
