The NFL must believe that Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard is heading for a big season in 2020 because they haven’t been shy about testing him for performance-enhancing drugs, according to the linebacker himself.
Leonard tweeted on Monday that the league has already had him test three times for PEDs since training camp started, and the All-Pro linebacker is seeing a trend.
3 PED’s tests in one month ! I’m just out here off of natural energy and athletic abilities ! Cmon @NFL Y’all don’t have to drug test me every week damn near !

There have been countless cases of players being tested for PEDs at a high rate. As Leonard enters his third season already with an All-Pro and Pro Bowl nod under his belt, the league must be expecting a big year for the South Carolina State product.
Dubbed “The Maniac,” Leonard has been flying around the field at Colts training camp making plays left and right. The former second-round pick has another set of high goals for himself in 2020, but he plans on achieving them without the benefit of PEDs.
Leonard is one of the most exciting players in the league and is headed for a big season so this likely isn’t the last time he will be tested for PEDs in 2020.
