    Seattle Seahawks' Brandon Browner faces suspension

    Say good-bye to that free agent pay day you were so looking forward to Brandon…



    Of course in true Seattle fashion he has denied it.

    I think the original report was PEDs, then it was updated to say "substance abuse". So technically he could be telling the truth when he says he isn't facing suspension "for PEDs".

    I'm guessing it's Adderall...the same stuff that they nailed Richard Sherman with and then he somehow evaded a suspension over a technicality...

    Why didn't he just crack his piss cup to get the test thrown away like his drug addicted bro Sherman. I'm sure Carroll has been teaching that since USC.

    Browner's shot at continuing his career as a starting caliber DB and earning a big pay raise just went up in smoke.

    After that little stunt Sherman pulled, I hope he gets tested more often. Like every couple weeks :D

    Re: Seattle Seahawks' Brandon Browner faces suspension

    This doesn't make much sense though. It can't be Adderall.

    Adderall falls under the CBA rule of "performance enhancing drugs."

    If he is falling under a different type of suspension that is NOT for PED's, then it has to be something else and wouldn't be Adderall. It would be a recreational drug...

    Either that or the story is not correct and he is actually facing another PED suspension, but if it's not a PED suspension it cannot be Adderall.

    Re: Seattle Seahawks' Brandon Browner faces suspension

    I'm guessing it's for marijuana too, if the new report is correct that it isn't a PED drug.

    Either way, that makes 3 of SEA's CB's of Thurman, Browner, and Sherman that have all been related to drug or PED (or both) use. This is what happens when "tickle me Pete" comes in and installs his laid back/surfer dude system. It's actually the main reason why I don't believe that they'll be able to sustain this level of success for more than another year or so.

    That was the tongue-in-cheek zinger.

    Inside sources say it's definitely for Mary Jane. I thought the "up in smoke" part was a dead give away. Guess not. ;)

    Re: Seattle Seahawks' Brandon Browner faces suspension

    Thurmond (the guy who replaced Browner last week) is facing a PED/Substance abuse suspension too. "Legion of Boom"? I think it's starting to look pretty clear what makes them as good as they are now...

    Both starting corners and the nickel back in a 12 month space? That HAS to be more than a coincidence.

    Re: Seattle Seahawks' Brandon Browner faces suspension

    Especially when you take Sherman's comments into account where he stated a very high percentage of NFL players who do drugs. I believe it was something like 50-60 percent or something. I don't specifically remember because it has been a long time, but he definitely said something that was very eye opening, and may be based on his experiences with the Seattle organization.

    Re: Seattle Seahawks' Brandon Browner faces suspension

    As mentioned by a Seahawks fan on another forum I frequent, Bruce Irvin was also suspended under the substance abuse program when he was training with the Seattle DB's. I don't think it's the whole team, just a certain part.

    They do win as team, lose as team and do drugs as a team.

    agreed, that whole team is on PEDs.

    Get browner off the field.

    You realize that they're more than likely just using Adderall as an excuse and that it's most likely something worse, right? Either way, Goodell is spineless when it comes to appeals. His suspension will more than likely get reduced.
