Brandon Browner Will Sue NFL If Suspension Sticks, Agent Says

Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner isn't done fighting the NFL over his second career suspension. On Wednesday, Browner's agent told ProFootballTalk that if the suspension sticks, they will file a lawsuit against the league.

"We will continue to exhaust all administrative remedies. If not successful, we will sue the living daylights out of the league," Browner’s agent Peter Schaffer told PFT.

After the NFL announced that Browner was suspended indefinitely over violating the league's substance abuse policy, the Seattle star tweeted a statement.

I want to thank the Seahawks organization for the incredible opportunity they gave me when they took a chance on a player who was out of the NFL and playing in the CFL for 4 years. I also want to thank all of my teammates, coaches, trainers, staff and the 12’s for their support, respect, and friendship and for helping me grow into the player, father, and person I am today. I have been treated with nothing but first class by everyone associated with the Seattle Seahawks and for that I am forever grateful. Although I disagree with the circumstances surrounding my suspension, I accept responsibility for all of my actions and I apologize for any that causes any unflattering reflections of my family and the Seahawks. I believe in my innocence and will continue to fight with all legal resources available to me to. Go Hawks!!!

Browner was suspended for the final four games of the 2012 season for using performance-enhancing substances. Although he initially filed an appeal, Browner dropped it so he could return for the playoffs.
