I’m sure ‘welcome to the NFL’ moments come in a variety of forms but Detroit Lions rookie punter Sam Martin got an interesting one last night. According to a tweet he sent out in the middle of the night, Martin was administered a 2:30 a.m. drug test.
2:30 am drug test. Not cool.

Although Martin appears a clear leader over Blake Clingan in the battle to win the Lions’ punting job, the drug test should be the easiest hurdle to clear. Detroit sports fans can keep their attention focused squarely on Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta when it comes to drug/PED news.
