Seahawks' Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner could be suspended 4 games: Report

Monday November 26th, 2012

Both of the Seattle Seahawks starting cornerbacks are looking at four-game suspensions after violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy,'s Adam Schefter reported Sunday. Schefter reported that both Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner intend to appeal their suspensions.

The suspension of both cornerbacks would serve as a severe loss for a Seahawks team currently fighting for its playoff life in the NFC. After Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins, the 6-5 Seahawks are locked in a three-way tie for the sixth and final playoff spot. Sherman and Browner have combined for seven interceptions this season. They have helped lead a Seahawks pass defense that ranks third in the NFL in yards allowed per game.
