It seems the NFL doesn't care that Le'Veon Bell said earlier this season that he was done taking HGH blood tests, as the league issued yet another round of random testing to the running back on Friday.
Friday's test marks the sixth time this season that Bell has been chosen to submit a blood test to league officials. However, it's not clear whether or not Bell submitted the test or not.
"I said what I said last time, so we'll cross that bridge if we've got to cross it," Bell said. "It seems kind of odd, that's crazy, ain't it? It feels like they're trying to clone me or something."
The last time Bell was tested, the running back said he wouldn't be taking tests anymore, and that the NFL wouldn't be getting any more of his blood.
Bell went on a Twitter rant in November after being issued five random tests within the first 10 weeks of the season. Once in front of the media at practice later that day, Bell questioned if the tests were even in fact random.
Back in 2016 with the Steelers, Bell faced a four-game suspension for missing a drug test in June of that year. He was eventually found guilty of violating the league's substance abuse policy for marijuana, but saw his suspension reduced to three games. He was also arrested in 2015 for possession of marijuana, and he was also suspended.
If a player refuses or misses a drug test, the NFL considers it a failed test and could suspend the player.
