Jake “Money Bags” Elliott (as we affectionately call him here) may need to be renamed Jake “Juicin” Elliott according to the NFL. The rookie Kicker has been lights out since the Philadelphia Eagles signed him off the Cincinnati practice squad in week two and the league has taken notice.
Elliott took to Snapchat this afternoon to expose the “random” drug testing of the NFL. Jake received a letter from the NFL drug testing program’s Medical Advisor again, and in fact, it’s his third test in just two weeks.
Elliott struggled in his first two games, missing a crucial kick before halftime in Kansas City, and another from 50+ in the first half against the Giants. However, his luck changed and skill came to fruition when he sealed a 27-24 victory with a 61-yard game-winning field goal against New York. Since that moment, he is a perfect 8/8, and 6/6 from 40 yards or more, so it’s understandable why eyebrows are being raised (even though the kid is harmless).

More to come.
