“Drug test coming soon”: NFL Twitter opens debate on foul gains following immense Derek Carr transformation

The New York Jets Aaron Rodgers has been hitting headlines quite frequently through his antics in the Big Apple after putting an end to his prolonged career with the Green Bay Packers. Like A-Rod, veteran quarterback Derek Carr is also starting his new journey with the New Orleans Saints after getting cut by the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Saints are set to play the preseason matchup on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Carr is already looking poised to lead New Orleans to the top of the NFC this season. Meanwhile, a photo of a jacked physique from the training camp got the attention of the fans, albeit some netizens speculated foul play after seeing the snap.

Recent pictures show amazing Derek Carr transformation

The Saints decided to rave about their quarterback by sharing a photo of Carr that was snapped during the practice session on Wednesday. He was looking more muscular than in seasons past and his muscle grabbed the attention of the NFL community. The muscular man did not seem to skip arm day based on the impressively jacked biceps and triceps.

The 32-year-old star recently took a short break from a training session in New Orleans to walk Muscle and Fitness through his gym bag staples. It reportedly includes his Oofos footwear to provide a boost following a tough workout, his Bose headphones to have full concentration on his craft as well as a cameo by one of his kid’s toys. Seemingly, the packed gym back has already started to showcase its charm ahead of the regular season.

Fans speculate dubiously over Saints QB’s physique

The NFL community didn’t halt back from commenting on the noticeable transformation of Carr and took to Twitter to convey their thoughts.

A fan heaped praise on the signal-caller’s dedication and commitment to the team saying,” He has a reason to be motivated. Trying to be that “comeback player of the year”… We’ll see if he gets to that level, he’s gotta prove a lot of people wrong. There’s a reason why the raiders let him go.”

While many fans were praising the football’s physique, some fans took the topic to another dimension. Many NFL players have been embroiled in trouble due to violating the league’s PED policy,

Amani Bledsoe, Julian Edelman, DeAndre Hopkins, Jordan Willis, and Bradley Roby were also suspended from their respective teams with the allegations of popping performance-enhancing drugs.

According to the PED policy, the players can be tested 6 times during the offseason and it is done very randomly without any prior notice. Seeing Derek’s transformation, some netizens speculated he might be the next one to get the test done.

Another fan projected the Saints’ veteran to embrace a six-game suspension in the upcoming days.
