Former Seahawks cornerback, Brandon Browner, has been resintated by the NFL from his indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Browner tweeted the news Tuesday:
I received wonderful news today. The NFL has reinstated me, and I now have the opportunity to prove to the fans and my teammates how important this sport is to me. I realize now more than ever that being part of the NFL is not a right, but a privilege. I am grateful that Commissioner Goodell and my agent were able to resolve this issue in a positive, productive manner so I can continue my career, provide for my family, and help my team win a Super Bowl. Thank you to all who have gone out of their way to show their support. I will live up to your expectations of me.
Browner, a Pro Bowl selection in 2011, is an unrestricted free agent, so the news comes just days before teams can make offers to players. Teams can enter into negotiations with players and their agents on Saturday, and new contracts can be signed as early as March 11.
Should Oakland consider signing him? Keep in mind he went down with a groin injury before he was suspended. I don't see him as a high character individual necessarily but his skill on the football field is not in question.
