Free agent cornerback Brandon Browner has been reinstated by the NFL.

Browner, 29, was initially suspended by the NFL for a year but that suspension has been dropped after Browner threatened to sue the league last week.

“I received wonderful news today. 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.” tweeted Browner.

Now reinstated Browner is free to sign with any team. He should have a decent market but may find it hard to land more than a one year deal with his off-the-field concerns.
