A controversial late 4th quarter Seahawks interception that bounced off the forearm of receiver Doug Baldwin into the arms of Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby to clinch an upset win for Arizona on Sunday has purportedly also resulted in Baldwin being the subject of a “random” league drug test. Arms so swole they cause picks? Gotta be the drugs!
It could also just be because Baldwin is a member of the Seahawks.

The layout and grammar on the notice are just wonky enough to make me suspect that this might be a joke – either by Baldwin or one of his teammates. Then again, suspiciously timed drug tests have been a bit of a thing for players this season.
