The NFL is tripling the number of offseason drug tests each player can face, a policy change made public on the eve of Wednesday's hearing before congressmen who are already drafting legislation on steroids in sports.

Leaders of the House Government Reform Committee, which subpoenaed baseball stars and officials to testify 11/2 months ago, are working with Sen. John McCain to draw up law establishing standard steroid policies for U.S. professional sports, said David Marin, spokesman for chairman Tom Davis of Virginia.
