First reported by Howard Balzer of the Sports Xchange, the Seattle Seahawks confirmed that offensive lineman Allen Barbre has been suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.
Barbre is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games. He’s under contract through the 2012 season and is scheduled to make $700,000 in base salary.
Barbre was brought back to Seattle’s active roster midway through last season. The team likes his versatility, and Barbre was expected to compete for a roster spot as a depth guy at both offensive guard and tackle.
