  • Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner was reinstated by the NFL on Wednesday following his suspension in December for violating the league's policy on substance abuse.
    The NFL and NFL Players Association announced the decision in a joint statement a day after Browner revealed the news on Twitter. Browner was suspended indefinitely without pay by the league Dec. 18.
    Browner's contract with the Seahawks expires March 11, and he will be eligible to sign with a club and participate in offseason and preseason activities. If he complies with the terms of the substance abuse policy and program, he will be fully reinstated after serving a four-game suspension without pay at the start of the regular season and forfeiting an additional four weeks of pay.
    Browns
    Cleveland has parted ways with wide receiver Davone Bess, following one disappointing season and a disturbing off season.
    Cleveland released the troubled wide receiver on Wednesday, an expected ending after Bess was arrested in January for assaulting a law enforcement officer at an airport and other bizarre behavior.
    Bess is still owed $3.06 million for 2014, but the Browns may try to recoup some of that money.
    The 28-year-old Bess was acquired last April in a trade with Miami and the Browns immediately signed him to a three-year, $11.5 million contract extension that included $5.75 million guaranteed.
