After the NFL indefinitely suspended Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner, his agent/lawyer Peter Schaffer said that he “will sue the living daylights out of the league.”

Daylight is expected to arrive soon.

Schaffer tells PFT that he plans to file next week a lawsuit challenging the decision to suspend Browner. The complaint will be accompanied by a motion for preliminary injunction, asking the court to allow Browner to become a free agent on March 11, which would have happened but for the suspension. Schaffer also will ask that Browner remain eligible to practice and play until the lawsuit is resolved.

Cases attacking the arbitration process mandated by the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement typically fail due to a high standard aimed at respecting such outcomes. Browner brings to the table a unique twist. Although his latest violation of the substance-abuse policy happened while he was an employee of the NFL and a member of the NFL Players Association, Schaffer will argue that the violations placing Browner one strike away from an indefinite suspension lasting at least one year happened while he wasn’t employed by any NFL team, and while he wasn’t a member of the NFLPA.

Browner will contend that the NFL continued to subject him to periodic drug testing after he was cut by the Denver Broncos in 2006. Browner also will contend that the NFL notified him of those tests at an address where he no longer resided, and that the NFLPA never informed him of the mounting penalties and suspensions arising from his failure to submit to testing during the five years after he was cut by the Broncos and returned to the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks.
