ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has hired outside counsel to represent him in fighting his four-game suspension by the NFL for allegedly violating the league’s performance-enhancing substance policy.
Further, Schefter said it’s realistic to expect that Sherman’s scheduled hearing on the issue on Friday could be pushed back further.
That’s good news for the Seahawks, who already will miss cornerback Brandon Browner for four games. Browner will begin serving his suspension today for violating the league’s performance-enhancing substance policy by allegedly taking an amphetamine-type substance.
Realistic to now expect the appeal date for Seahawks CB Richard Sherman's four-game suspension to be pushed back even further than Dec. 14.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 9, 2012
