Punters have excelled in the 2022 preseason with two of them executing kicks that went beyond 80 yards.

One was of the who impressed last Friday against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2 of the preseason.

He so impressed the that they must have thought he was cheating.

Gillikin revealed on social media that the League forced him to take a doping test.

Had it been in the regular season, Gillikin’s punt would have tied for the franchise’s longest kick taken in 1969.

Gillikin punted from his own 7-yard line and fell to the Green Bay 12. He averaged 59.4 punt yards in the game.

Previously, Buffalo Bills rookie Matt Araiza, also known as the “Punt God,” had an 82-yard punt in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.
