Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden said he received a drug test around 3 a.m. Tuesday, more than three hours after the Steelers’ 30-27 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“It was me, (kicker Chris) Boswell had one — it was like seven of us that had a drug test. I was like, ‘Dude, you can just tell me to come back in the morning.’ I don’t get it,” he said.
The setup this time was especially awkward, he said.
“We’ve been up all day, we have an 8:30 game, leave Tampa right after the game, we land at 3 in the morning, only thing I’m thinking about is getting back to the house,” Haden said. “Super tired. You try to sleep on the plane, woke up and have to take a test. It is what it is. I was thinking another couple of hours wouldn’t hurt. I ended up getting home at 4:15, then my little man was up in the room at 6.” Said Haden
Players around the league are randomly selected for drug testing throughout the season, and they must be ready to report upon notification.
It was just last week OBJ was complaining about his drug tests.

The NFL doesn’t exactly want to give these guys a heads up. Not to mention, Haden has been caught taking adderrall in the past…
