Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner is facing up to the prospect of a 12-month NFL suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, reports

If found guilty, the 29-year-old might never play for Pete Carroll's side again, as his contract with the National Football Conference Western Division franchise expires at the end of the season.

Currently sidelined by a groin injury, Browner wasn't expected to return to action until mid-December, but could now face a much longer period in the wilderness.

Browner missed the final four games of last season for breaching the league's performance-enhancing drug policy, and it was initially reported that the former Calgary Stampeders star was facing a similar ban this time around.

However, Browner and his agent both took to Twitter to categorically deny those allegations, though it's yet to be confirmed exactly what the cornerback is in hot water over.

Either way, it looks as though his Seahawks career is over, with Carroll already lining up a move for Antoine Winfield, as well as inviting free agents Perrish Cox and Marcus Trufant for tryouts later this week.
