Fifth-year defensive end Myles Garrett has been one of the NFL's top defenders for as long as he's been in the league. The former first overall pick is one of the reasons why Cleveland has been off to a hot 3-1 start and his performance has certainly gotten the league's attention — in the form of a 'random' drug test, that is.

The NFL tested Garrett for performance-enhancing drugs following the Browns 14-7 Week 4 win over the Minnesota Vikings. The two-time Pro-Bowler then took to his Twitter page to troll the league in a hilarious tweet.

Garrett attributed the 'random' drug test to the fact that he had gone sleeveless on Sunday after wearing long sleeves under his jersey for a while. He finished the contest with 5 total tackles, 0.5 sacks and 4 quarterback hits.

When it comes to his season-long performance, Garrett leads all NFL defenders with 6.0 sacks and 7 tackles for a loss after four games. He's also recorded 19 total tackles and has 13 QB hits — five away from last season's total in 10 fewer games.

It seems that it's often the case that professional athletes are hit with random drug tests after showing off impressive physique or following a monster in-game performance. Considering how Garrett had 4.5 sacks in Week 3, Monday's drug test certainly seems a little less random.

Nevertheless, as long as Garrett continues to dominate legally, you won't hear any complaints from the Browns or their fans. The former Texas A&M Aggie is currently FanDuel Sportsbook's favorite to be named 2021 NFL Defensive Player of the Year at +350 odds.
