Josh Norman was angry about a drug test following his game

Josh Norman didn’t appreciate the timing of his latest drug test.

You’d have to think that following the Redskins 23-27 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, cornerback Josh Norman was already in a bad mood.

Things got worse for him when he was informed of a mandatory drug test that needed to be completed immediately.

With an audience of reporters surrounding him, Norman was quick to complain to the press.

“How the NFL has us drug tested right after the game, I don’t understand that. I really don’t,” Norman said. “It’s crazy. Don’t have anything left in the tank and they want you drug tested? I don’t understand it.”

While the league conducts random drug tests throughout the year, Norman said this was the first time he had to take one following a game.

“I don’t get it, I really don’t,” Norman said. “What’s a day gonna do? It’s stupid.”

Once notified, players only have three hours to complete the test or that face consequences.

To his credit, after finishing the interviews (and while still clearly annoyed) Norman went to take the test.
