Wednesday links: is Browner's suspension as clear-cut as we think?
News Tribune Columnist Dave Boling says the blame for these suspensions should be on the individuals.
Speaking of Browner, ProFootballTalk.com offers an interesting theory on his suspension, wondering of Browner advanced to stage three of the league’s drug program—the stage in which a positive test leads to a one-year ban, which is what he’s reportedly facing—not by failing a test, but by missing one while he was not in the NFL. It’s important to note that this is only a theory being presented, though for what it’s worth, Browner’s agent, Peter Schaffer, did post a link to the article on Twitter. Browner is currently appealing his suspension, though given his current injury status, his season could be over regardless of what happens with this suspension.
Doug Farrar of SI.com says the Seahawks may be their own worst enemy.
Seahawks.com looks at Byron Maxwell, who is expected to step into a starting role with Thurmond and Browner out.
