'They are trying to clone me': Browns DE Myles Garrett drug tested for third time in four weeks after win vs. Broncos

Taking to Twitter on Friday, Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett revealed he's been selected for a random drug test again.

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.
