Brandon Browner tweets statement about suspension


By now you’ve probably seen the news about Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner being suspended indefinitely for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. The next few days will feature plenty of discussion about the suspension and its impact on Seattle’s Super Bowl chances, but for now here’s what Browner had to say on Twitter:

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!!!

Buckle up, folks, because you’ll be hearing a lot about this suspension this week.
