Jake Elliott Keeps Getting Drug Tested
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) — All of 5-foot-9 and 167 pounds, Eagles kicker Jake Elliott isn't the first name that comes to mind when talking about potential PED scofflaws but the rookie has been tested by the NFL three times over the past two weeks, something Elliott himself confirmed with an Instagram post.
Eliott has made 10 straight field goals and three consecutive from 50-plus, including his franchise-record 61-yard game-winner against the New York Giants in Week 3.
Testing is random but Elliott himself seems to believe such an explosive leg on a small body has the NFL questioning his success.
