The NFL and NFL Players Association have asked the administrator of their independent drug-testing program to look into allegations by Eric Reid.

Reid believes he's been targeted due to his political actions for an abnormal number of drug tests. Reid has been tested seven times since signing in late September.

While the NFL and NFLPA stand by their position the tests are random and they have no influence on who gets tested, they have asked that John Lombardo look into the matter with the number of tests raising eyebrows.

"I guess there was something about some mathematician saying it's highly improbable, but definitely possible," Carolina coach Ron Rivera said last week. "But I'll say this: If my name came up that many times, I'd buy a lottery ticket."
