INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 6, 2015) – He set a team record for the longest field goal in Indianapolis Colts playoff history.

Adam Vinatieri’s reward?

A random drug test, reports ESPN.

Colts punter Pat McAfee tweeted a photo of the letter to the 42-year-old kicker, who received it the day after making four field goals in the Colts’ Wild Card win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Vinatieri’s 53-yard field goal in the fourth quarter broke his own team record of 52 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in 2013.

The letter reads, in part:

You have been randomly selected by the NFL drug testing program’s Medical Advisor to complete a urine doping test today.
