Sources: Seahawks CBs Facing Suspension for Substance Use

Follow me on:

The big story out of the NFL this morning, unfortunately, has nothing to do with football.

Citing "league sources," ESPN on Monday was reporting that the Seattle Seahawks' two star cornerbacks, Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner, were facing four-game suspensions because of violations of the league's substance abuse policy.

According to the report, both Sherman and Browner have tested positive of adderall--a stimulant that can be used to treat such conditions as ADHD--but both are claiming that they're innocent. The players are allowed to appeal the charges, and that hearing could happen as soon as this week, according to ESPN.

Sherman told NFL.com's Steve Wyche via text message that he had "never" taken adderall, or any other banned substance.

It goes without saying that losing Sherman and Browner would represent a major blow for the Seahawks, who suffered a 24-21 loss to Miami on Sunday and, at 6-5, are battling for a playoff spot. - Tim Hyland

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web
the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just don’t know about.

You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
the whole thing without having side effect , people
could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
Thanks
