Brandon Browner says he's been reinstated by NFL

Seattle Seahawks free agent cornerback Brandon Browner announced that he's been reinstated by the NFL.

The news comes after Browner's agent, Peter Schaffer, said recently that they planned to sue the league for his previous indefinite suspension for violating the NFL drug policy.

"I received wonderful news today," Browner wrote on Twitter. "The NFL has reinstated me, and I now have
the opportunity to prove to the fans and my teammates how important this sport is to me. I realize now more than ever that being part of the NFL is not a right, but a privilege.

"I am grateful that Commissioner Goodell and my agent were able to resolve this issue in a positive, productive manner so I can continue my career, provide for my family, and help my team win a Super Bowl. Thank you to all who have gone out of their way to show their support. I will live up to your expectations of me."

The terms of the reinstatement remain unknown.

"The NFLPA worked closely with Brandon Browner, his representatives and the NFL to find a resolution to his reinstatement," NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah wrote on Twitter.
