Come on, man. Blake Gillikin returned to New Orleans after a record-tying preseason

game against the Green Bay Packers to learn that he’s been randomly selected for NFL drug testing.

Gillikin shared the news on his personal Twitter account, which remains unverified though he’s used

it often since he became a highly-rated high school recruit back in 2014.

It isn’t unusual to see players called in for random testing this time of the year.

But the optics couldn’t be worse given Gillikin just booted an 81-yard punt for the New Orleans Saints

a few days ago while dropping several other balls deep inside enemy territory.

He’s established himself as a weapon for the Saints in the kicking game,

and this big game in Green Bay is just the latest proof of it. And, hey: look at Gillikin following in his mentor’s footsteps.
