Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner took exception to Jim Harbaugh calling out the Seahawks this week for their rash of performance-enhancing drug suspensions, saying he would like to "put his hands around" the neck of the San Francisco 49ers coach. In an interview with KJR radio in Seattle, Browner offered some harsh words. "I don't have anything for it. At the end of the day, we gotta win football games. He's a coach. He's never gonna be out there lined up against me. I wish he would; I'd put my hands around his neck. At the end of the day, I'm about winning football games," Browner said. Harbaugh had said earlier in the week that the Seahawks should play by the rules and added that drugs were not acceptable to him. "It has no place in an athlete's body. Play by the rules," he said. "You want to be above reproach, especially when you're good, because you don't want people to come back and say, 'They're winning because they're cheating.'" The Seahawks have been hit with five player suspensions from the NFL since 2011 for performance-enhancing drugs and a sixth against defensive back Richard Sherman was overturned on appeal because of a legal technicality. Browner, 28, was suspended in November 2012 after testing positive for PEDs and missed the final four games of the regular season. The Seahawks face the 49ers in Week 2 of the 2013 season in a Sunday night game in Seattle.
