Eric Reid has played six games this season. You can be tested after every game. In addition, there is a mandatory one during the physical.

Looking at the combinatorics, there is an 18% chance of getting tested a total of at least 3 times, a 4% chance of getting tested a total of at least 4 times, and a 0.5% chance of getting tested five times. But I doubt he was tested five times, because when an aggrieved party says "like five", they usually don't mean "five".

The bigger question is how the league is rigging this, when like just about every company that tests employees, it's carried out by a third party that maintains a full audit trail (because disciplining employees based on testing is a sensitive legal and medical matter), and whose whole business will be destroyed and sued into oblivion if they are caught tampering with the process. And the league did no more to select that third party than the NFLPA itself did.

Until someone explains that piece to me, it's just a dumb conspiracy theory believed by dumb people.
