Colts quarterback with an elderly lady analogy for NFL drug testing

The 38-year-old Matt Hasselbeck who is the backup quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts no longer understands the reasoning behind his selection for drug testing by the NFL.

Random drug testing is an important part of a professional athletes career but some players may find it unnecessary for them to be chosen and this is the case for Hasselbeck.

The quarterback recently tweeted a hilarious analogy to describe the drug testing he has been subjected too: "Every time I get tested for steroids reminds me of the elderly lady at the airport that TSA pulls out of line for a pat down."

He may well have a point, Hasselbeck is well past his prime and he acts more as an extra coach for the Colts than a required backup for franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.

Hasselbeck has been in the league for 16 seasons, so he has faced his fair share of random drug tests, its just refreshing that he has a good sense of humour about it.
