Seattle Seahawks Brandon Browner is on the verge of receiving another four-match suspension for violating the NFL's performance enhancing drug policy.
Browner must have thought he was out of the woods when he announced Tuesday on Twitter that he had been reinstated by the NFL.
Speaking at the time he said, "I received wonderful news today. The NFL has reinstated me, and I now have the opportunity to prove to the fans and my teammates how important this sport is to me. I realize now more than ever that being part of the NFL is not a right, but a privilege.
"I am grateful that Commissioner Goodell and my agent were able to resolve this issue in a positive, productive manner so I can continue my career, provide for my family, and help my team win a Super Bowl. Thank you to all who have gone out of their way to show their support. I will live up to your expectations of me."
ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter believes he will receive a new ban soon.
"NFLPA announced Seahawks CB Brandon Browner will have to serve an additional four-game suspension at start of 2014 season," he posted on Twitter.
However, this initial happiness may be removed swiftly by the news he is likely to serve a four-match ban at the stage of the 2014 NFL season.
Browner's best season so far in a Seahawks jersey is easily his year in 2011.
The cornerback picked off six passes that particular season, two of which he took back for touchdowns of his own.
To complete that he also had 23 pass defensed, stats which made his selection in the Pro Bowl for the 2011 season inevitable.
However, he served a four-match ban in 2012 for using a prescription drug, just one season after he had made the Pro Bowl and it seems another ban is on its way.
