Free agent cornerback Brandon Browner says on his Twitter account that he has won his appeal against his indefinite suspension from the NFL:
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.
The former Seahawk had landed in the NFL’s most severe level of the substance abuse program due to drug tests that he missed when he was not in the league, and had been reportedly appealing his suspension on the basis of a tarnished urine sample.
