The Texas A&M football team isn’t having an ideal season, but they maintain one of the best defensive lines in college football. This isn’t new, as it seems like the Aggies always have one of the most menacing defensive fronts in the game.
Perhaps the best to ever do it on the defensive line in the maroon and white is Myles Garrett, who is also widely considered one of the best overall A&M football players in the school’s history. A few young players like DeMarvin Leal and Shemar Turner will look to follow in his footsteps as successful Texas A&M defensive linemen.
After an extremely successful season in College Station, Garrett went to the NFL, where he’s been one of the best players in the league for the entirety of his career. There may not be an offensive lineman in existence who can match up to him physically.
Former Texas A&M football star Myles Garrett may have been drug tested because of how muscular he is
As you can see in the image above, Myles Garrett generally wears sleeves when he plays football. It may not be something you’ve noticed — I hadn’t even thought about it until creating this post. Even if you go all the way back to his time with the Texas A&M football team, he usually wore at least partial sleeves.
On Sunday, Garrett didn’t wear sleeves against the Minnesota Vikings and he looked like a bodybuilder on the field. Garrett would be promptly drug tested, according to this tweet that he posted on Monday.
This shouldn’t be too surprising, as the NFL has been rumored to drug test certain players for reasons that can only be described as incredibly stupid. For Garrett, it was the fact that his arms looked inhumanely large when he didn’t wear sleeves.
When you really think about it, this is beyond ridiculous. Imagine a world where you take performance-enhancing drugs and your arms double in size in less than a week. For my own peace of mind, I hope the NFL didn’t really drug test him.
What may come as a surprise to some fans is that Garrett wasn’t drug tested after a seven-tackle, 4.5-sack game against the Chicago Bears a week ago. It was the highest total by any player so far in the 2021 season. Just four games into the year, Garrett is on track to set a new career-high number in sacks.
The former Aggie defensively lineman isn’t slowing down anytime soon and keeps things exciting on a strong Browns defensive unit.
