Some interesting insight from ESPN’s John Clayton today on the Brandon Browner situation.
You can find a good wrapup of it here from Chris Cluff of Examiner.com.
As Cluff writes:
Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner is believed to have turned down a deal offered by the NFL as he seeks a fine and no lost games, John Clayton reported on 710 ESPN on Tuesday, and Clayton says Browner is unlikely to face the yearlong suspension the NFL originally planned to levy for what appears to be his first positive test for substance abuse.
“I think he has been offered one deal and has turned it down,” said Clayton, who checked for an update on the case Tuesday. “The one year I think is going to be off the table. But I don’t think he settles for anything less than a four-paycheck, no-suspension type of arrangement. If not, I think he takes it to federal court. I think he feels very good about his case.”
Clayton also said there was no timetable at this point.
“He had three days of hearings last week, all done by phone, and he’s still awaiting a verdict,” Clayton said. “He’s still not anticipating anything very quickly.”
