Detroit Lions Punter Sam Martin Given Late Night Drug Test


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.
