Report: Brandon Browner faces suspension; he denies it's PEDs

A day after it was revealed that Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond would be suspended four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, another NFL policy violation reportedly has ensnared Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner again.

Browner, though, has taken to Twitter to deny that it's a second PEDs violation, and his side of the story has been confirmed by CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

According to the original story from NFL.com's Mike Silver, Browner was facing a suspension for violating the league's PEDs policy. Browner missed four games last year because of a PEDS violation.

But ...

And ...

From La Canfora: "I spoke to a source with knowledge of the situation who said that Browner did not have another positive test for PEDs and is not facing a suspension for PEDs but declined to comment further on if Browner did have any other violation of a league policy other than PEDs."

And ...

From Browner's agent:

So, Browner might be in trouble for violating some kind of NFL policy, but apparently, it's not clear what that would be. La Canfora reported earlier this month that the team likely would part ways with Browner this offseason.

It should be noted that Silver did not mention the word "PEDs" when talking about his report on NFL Total Access on Monday evening, and that original detail has been scrubbed on the NFL.com story.

Silver also reported that the team will sign cornerback Antoine Winfield to replace Browner and Thurmond. Earlier this season, Winfield, the longtime Vikings cornerback, said he was retired, and La Canfora reports that, for now, Winfield still is retired.

Not including Browner's reported second suspension, the Seahawks have been hit by five PEDs suspensions since 2011.
