Now that Brandon Browner is possibly facing an eight game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance enhancing drug policy, they’re ready to move on from him, according to Mike Silver of the NFL Network via NFL.com.
This suspension should end Browner’s Seahawks career, according to Silver’s sources. His contract expires at the end of the season and the organization is believed to be done with him. Browner’s agent declined comment to Silver, citing the confidentiality of the league’s program.
Silver also reported that the Seahawks are going to sign Antoine Winfield.
The Seahawks will sign veteran Antoine Winfield to help replace Browner and Thurmond. Silver reports that another cornerback is also expected to join the team.
Update: The NFL Network is now reporting that Winfield is still thinking about signing with the Seahawks.
