Brandon Browner facing one-year suspension

Published Add your comment

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner could face a one-year suspension for violating the terms of the National Football League's policy on substance abuse, according to unnamed sources cited by USA Today.

29-year-old Browner, an undrafted one-time Pro Bowl selection who has been with the Seahawks since 2011, served a previous suspension back in 2012 and missed four of the franchise's regular season games prior to the playoffs.

It had been initially reported that this most recent suspension was as a result of performance-enhancing drugs, however that was a claim swiftly denied by the player himself, who tweeted: "I'm not facing suspension for PEDs, it's sad that the NFL is reporting this..."

Browner, who spent a year with the Denver Broncos between 2005-06 before a stint in Canada with the Calgary Stampeders, is currently out of action with a groin injury.

Such a lengthy suspension would appear likely to curtail his time with the Seahawks, with the secondary set to become a free agent at the end of the current season.

The Seahawks, meanwhile, have enjoyed a hugely impressive 2013/14 campaign and currently sit top of the NFC standings with a stunning 10-1 record.

Following their 41-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings last weekend, Pete Carroll's men return to action next Monday following a bye week with a mouth-watering home clash against the 9-2 New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field.
