Second-year New Orleans Saints punter Blake Gillikin got a ton of fanfare after he put forth one of the greatest punts you’ll ever see — this 81-yard bomb in the third quarter, turning the field from the New Orleans 19-yard line all the way to the opposing end zone for a touchback.

How did the NFL respond?

They sent him a random drug test notice that the punter shared with everybody on Twitter.

Last season, the Penn State alum had 83 punts, averaging 47.7 yards per punt, and his longest was 63 yards.
