Carolina Panthers Eric Reid was drug tested seven times in 11 weeks last season after joining the Panthers. 

The NFL and NFLPA released a statement saying there's "no evidence" he was targeted 

Reid claimed after a Dec. 17th loss to New Orleans that he'd been selected for testing for the seventh time since signing with Carolina in late September. 

He implied that the tests were not random as stated in the collective bargaining agreement and that he was being targeted because of his collusion grievance against the league.

The NFL and NFLPA responded by asking John Lombardo, the administrator of the performance-enhancing drug testing program for 28 years, to look into the matter.

"There is no evidence of targeting or any other impropriety with respect to his selection for testing,'' the two organizations said in a joint statement released on Wednesday.

Reid also has suggested his four fines for hits during games and ejection for his hit on Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roelisberger during a Thursday night game have been part of the league targeting him because of the grievance.

The joint investigation was based solely on Reid's attack of the drug testing program.

Something's not adding up.
