I don't think the Hawks are expecting him to come in and start....they are calling him in hopes for more depth.

That makes more sense as to why they're pulling from the bullpen of available players. Having been with the squad before helps a ton.

FWIW, Brandon Browner just reported via twitter:
"I'm not facing suspension for PEDs, it's sad that the NFL is reporting this..."

Having said that, he wasn't going to be playing anyway due to injury. Will be interesting to hear what comes of this though.....As a Hawks fan, I hate the "Sea-adderall" label, so if this is true, he's dead to us as far as I'm concerned.

The story is false. Brandon Browner's agent text John Clayton and told him so..

It was reported by Mike Silver (A huge 49er fan and apologist). He's a clown and is a disgrace to journalism..

Fun. NFLN is running with it now. They say Seattle is "moving on" without Browner. In other words, he's done in a Seahawks uni. Who to believe?
