It's not easy being an old guy in the NFL.

As for Harrison, who turns 38 in May, his test notice came on Wednesday morning, and because the Steelers linebacker loves to use social media, he decided to give us all a play-by-play of what exactly happens.
"Beaker I gotta pee in," Harrison said in the video.
"Random PED (performance-enhancing drug). I'll stand here," Harrison says, as he stands in front of a toilet. "I'll stand here like this."
Harrison then lets us know that there's another person in the bathroom with him. "He'll stand there, making sure [the urine's] mine," Harrison says, referring to the guy who collects the samples.
You can see the entire video below.

Even though Harrison had to take the test, that doesn't necessarily means he'll be back in 2016. The Steelers linebacker tweeted out on Wednesday that he's still undecided about next season, even though his agent hinted that he would likely return.
Hold up. It's 1 thing to want to come back but it's another to get the body back to where it needs to be. We'll see. https://t.co/34YPjZU5Sh— James Harrison (@jharrison9292) February 16, 2016
If Harrison does return, he better get ready to take lots of 'random' drug tests.
