After joining the Jets this summer, Bell was pulled from two consecutive practices for urine samples but head coach Adam Gase attributed it to the timing of his contract, the New York Daily News reported at the time.
Bell said that in just 10 weeks, he's already undergone five "random" HGH blood tests, all of which he's passed. He also missed all of 2018 during a holdout. He has had previous problems with the league's substance abuse policy, serving a two-game suspension in 2015 and a three-game suspension in 2016.
He believes the National Football League are targeting him and says enough is enough. Bell, 27, is well aware of this. It was instead because he missed several of the tests, and although it was reduced to three games upon appeal, he was still forced to sit for almost a month.
Later, speaking to reporters, Bell doubled down, saying he refuses to be tested again.
The former Pittsburgh Steelers star was suspended two games in 2014 after he was charged with marijuana possession and DUI.
He made it clear that he is not happy with the league for those tests. A computer program selects five players from eight randomly selected teams to undergo testing every week and players are required to comply or else face repercussions.
By rule, a player can be tested up to six times in a calendar year.
It's been a frustrating first season for Bell with the 3-7 Jets, as he has struggled to make an impact on a mostly inept offense after signing a four-year, $52.5 million deal this offseason.
Bell, who signed a four-year, $52.5 million contract in the offseason, has struggled to produce behind a patchwork offensive line in his first season in NY.
