Giants Punter Steve Weatherford Latest to Be Tested for PEDs after One Big Game
Maybe you remember Pat McAfee’s playful suspicion when the NFL tested him for banned substances after one big hit on Trindon Holliday. Well now Giants punter Steve Weatherford has joined McAfee as the latest specialty-position player to have his leg strength draw the NFL’s attention after a big game:

Maybe McAfee and Weatherford are deflecting. Maybe we’re unknowingly seeing the first evidence of a punter/kicker steroid epidemic. I, for one, am looking forward to an NFL in which kickers have one disproportionately large, Barry Bonds-type leg.
