New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell doesn’t want to succumb to any more of the NFL’s random drug tests.

Numerous pro football players in the past have had issues with the NFL‘s drug tests, calling them out for not exactly being “random.” New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell is the latest to do so.

On Tuesday, via his personal Twitter account, Bell revealed he’s been “randomly” drug tested by the league five times in the last 10 weeks. Bell claims he doesn’t engage in any activates related to the usage of human growth hormones and no longer wants to succumb to any of these tests.

It’s unclear why the NFL keeps going back to Bell if they haven’t found any banned substance in his body. But, at the end of the day, it is what it is. There’s really nothing more Bell can do past calling the league out in a public manner.

Bell has only been suspended twice in his career up to this point, both related to drugs. The league suspended him two games to start the 2015 season due to a DUI and marijuana possession charge. He was also suspended for the first three games of the 2016 season for violating the league’s substance policy. Bell claimed the latter was due to a missed drug test.

The newly-acquired running back has struggled for much of his inaugural season with the Jets. Through 10 games, he’s racked up 508 rushing yards with three touchdowns on 3.2 yards-per-carry. He’s also caught 46 balls on 57 targets for 309 yards and one score through the air.
