This would be a massive blow to one of the emerging dominant defenses in the NFL.  Brandon Browner is a journeyman who finally found a spot on the Seahawks last year, after a short tenure in the CFL, and made the Pro Bowl.  Sherman has emerged this year and been in the spotlight for a few different reasons, specifically for trolling Tom Brady and Calvin Johnson on Twitter.The Seahawks pass defense currently ranks third in the NFL and Sherman and Browner have combined for seven of the nine interceptions by the Seahawks this season.Filed to ESPN: Seattle CBs Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner facing 4-game suspensions for violating performance enhancing drug policy.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 25, 2012Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are appealing suspensions, insisting they are innocent. Appeal could be heard as early as this week.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 25, 2012Can confirm ESPN report that Seahawk CBs Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are facing four-game suspensions for PED violation. Huge blow.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 25, 2012Btw, not that this will shock anybody, but I’m told it was Adderall for Sherman and Browner.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) November 25, 2012A lot of NFL players have been suspended for using Adderall this year, and I think the simplest thing for these players would be to spend time in the offseason getting tested for ADD, or get a doctor to write them a prescription for it.  It’s a pretty stupid thing to get suspended for, but if it is a substance that you aren’t prescribed for, then the NFL is going to punish you even if it isn’t HGH or something similar to that.Richard Sherman is pretty confident that nothing will come of this though.This is issue will be resolved soon and the truth will come out. Not worried— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) November 26, 2012H/T: Huffington PostRelated: Seahawks CB Richard Sherman taunts Tom Brady  Related: Seattle CB changes his Twitter Name to Optimus Prime Related: Seahawks CB Richard Sherman brags about shutting down Calvin Johnson
