Brandon Browner facing suspension



UPDATE: Brandon Browner took to Twitter to dispute the claim

Yesterday it was reported that Seattle Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond was facing a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, and on Monday it got even worse for Seattle. Mike Silver of NFL Network reporting that cornerback Brandon Browner, is facing another suspension for PED use, which would be the second one of his career.

Browner missed the last four games of the 2012 season due to his first suspension, and is currently out with a groin injury, which was expected to keep him out until around mid-December. Silver is also reporting that to make up for the loss of Browner and Thurmond, the Seahawks are signing Antonie Winfield, who they cut in training camp.

This now makes the fifth PED suspension for the Seattle Seahawks since 2011, which is a league high.
