Former running back Steven Jackson signed a one-day contract to retire as a Los Angeles (then-St. Louis) Ram.
However, he received a notice that about being selected for a drug screening right afterwards.
In a amusing story by NFL Memes, Jackson said in a tweet that he was selected by the NFL to do a random drug test after signing that contract. Yet he hadn’t played a game since the 2015 season.
Dear NFL can you tell Mr. Lombardo that I signed a one day contract. I will not be reporting today for my random drug test screening. Thanks in advance #retirement life 😎— Steven Jackson (@sj39) August 1, 2019
After tweeting his rather confusing news, some of his old teammates and fans were also baffled.

Let’s say this adds to the weird and confusing chapter to the reign of commissioner Roger Goddell. Especially with his ways of handing out drug tests like they are no tomorrow.
