Browner watching from afar

In case you missed it, in an interview with CBSSports.com, suspended Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner expressed the obvious disappointment over not being with the team at the Super Bowl and also said his efforts to overturn his punishment are ongoing.

“I’m trying to be optimistic about the situation, because I definitely feel like the punishment was too stiff for the circumstances,” Browner said. “I don’t think I should be suspended for no year … and I hope they can figure something out and I’m optimistic that I can get back. Like I said, it’s just something that motivates me in life, period. You don’t want to go out this way, when something you have worked so hard to achieve is taken away from you.”

Various Seattle teammates have expressed support for Browner during interviews this week, and at other times.

But as noted in the story, Seattle also¬† hasn’t missed much of a beat without him, with Byron Maxwell and Walter Thurmond filling in more than capably.

Browner last played for Seattle on Nov. 10 at Atlanta. He was initially sidelined with a groin injury and then later suspended.

USA Today also had a story on Browner today, noting that he plans to watch the game on TV from his home in California.
