New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell has had an eventful first couple days during his initial training camp with the team.

After a drama-filled offseason, Bell found himself tested for drugs by the NFL for the second time in a 24-hour period early on Saturday.

For those asking, this is quite rare. While the league will test a multitude of players during the early stages of camp, doing so twice within a two-day span does not happen too often.

The opening of the NFL’s annual drug testing window is April 20. We’re now months into that window.

Though, there’s no reason to believe that the NFL thinks Bell will fail said drug tests.

Bell, a two-time All-Pro performer, inked a four-year, $52.5 million deal with the Jets back in March after the former Pittsburgh Steelers star held out throughout the 2018 season.
