Seahawks CB Brandon Browner suspended 1 year for violating NFL's substance abuse policy

The Seattle Seahawks got a whole bunch of bad news the past two days. First it was Walter Thurmond getting a four-game suspension for Marijuana, then the news got worse.

Brandon Browner, another cornerstone of the Legion of Boom, has now been suspended a year for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Thanks to Adam Schefter we also know that Browner has appealed.

It’s unclear whether or not this incident is related to the Thurmond incident but the chances are definitely pretty good. In fact a friend (and avid 12th Man affiliate) just mentioned this to me, “why is it that I picture The Legion of Boom passing a bong around?”

It’s going to get very interesting as the Playoffs draw nearer. Seattle right now is like the NFL’s “bad boys” and it seems they are being made an example of.
