CLEVELAND — #SleevelessMyles might be retired. That, however, wasn't enough to stop Myles Garrett from being selected from a random NFL drug test for the third time in four weeks on Friday.
Taking to Twitter on Friday, the All-Pro defensive end revealed that he had been summoned for yet another drug test following the Cleveland Browns' 17-14 victory over the Denver Broncos on Thursday night. Earlier this week, Garrett bemoaned what had marked his second "random" drug test in a three-week span, which he blamed on his decision to go sleeveless in the Browns' Week 4 win over the Minnesota Vikings and Week 6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
"I go sleeveless TWO TIMES and get 'randomly' drug tested BOTH times," Garrett tweeted on Tuesday. "I’d try 3 for 3 but they can miss me with the blood draw not the vibe. #SleevelessMyles is retired."
True to his word, the 25-year-old Garrett wore long sleeves underneath his jersey against the Broncos on Thursday night -- although his plan ultimately proved unsuccessful. In a tweet posted on Friday, the No. 1 pick of the 2017 NFL Draft shared a screenshot of a text requesting he participate in another drug test, which led to him to offer a new theory as to why he's being targeted by the league.
"Yeaaa they are trying to clone me," tweeted the 6-foot-4, 274-pound Garrett, who recorded 1.5 sacks against Denver on Thursday, moving him into second-place all-time in franchise history with 52.
