All in all, it was a complete performance for the LB. Soon after, the NFL borderline disrespected Van Noy by asking him to be part of a random drug test. This request did not impress the linebacker and took to Twitter to share his disappointment.

Don’t worry Kyle, Myles Garrett had it worse than you

When you perform exceptionally well in sport, a constant plea for a drug test in a short span is certainly frustrating.

He blamed his gun biceps for the tests.

Coincidentally, the two times he has been asked to give the test, he had worn sleeveless jerseys. “I go sleeveless TWO TIMES and get “randomly” drug tested BOTH times… I’d try 3 for 3 but they can miss me with the blood draw, not the vibe. #SleevelessMyles is retired”, he tweeted.
