The agent of Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner has intimated that his client plans to file a lawsuit against the NFL, if his indefinite suspension cannot be overturned, reports ESPN.

Speaking to, Peter Schaffer vowed to fight the ruling 'exhaustively', after the 29-year-old was found guilty of a violation of the league's substance-abuse policy.

"We will continue to exhaust all administrative remedies," he told the website. "If not successful, we will sue the living daylights out of the league."

The suspension is the second in two seasons for Browner, who missed four games last season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

After the latest suspension was announced, the Seahawks star sent out a lengthy statement via his Twitter account to maintain his innocence, whilst also thanking the Washington-based organisation for all their support.

However, Browner did appear resigned to the fact that his career at CenturyLink Field was over, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

His NFL suspension is effective immediately and without pay, but another lucrative contract could be in the offing, providing he and agent Schaffer can somehow get the existing decision overturned.
