What's buzzing:

Seahawks' Sherman tweets he wins appeal

The SportsXchange

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman tweeted that he won his appeal of a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

"I won," Sherman wrote Thursday at @RSherman_25. "Thank you @nfl for upholding the truth! To the 12s Thank you your faith is rewarded! Thank you lord"

The NFL has yet to confirm the ruling, declining comment because of confidentiality issues.

"I never took any PEDs," Sherman told ESPN Radio. "That's always the key to it."

Sherman and fellow Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner were handed suspensions in November for reportedly testing positive for Adderall. Both appealed, with Browner dropping his appeal three games ago. But Sherman continued with his appeal, arguing that his urine specimen was contaminated while being collected for testing, according to an ESPN.com report.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll tweeted: "Congrats to Richard Sherman for winning his appeal! Happy for him & it'll be great to have him with us as we move forward"

Browner will be eligible to return to the Seahawks following the team's regular-season finale Sunday.

Rookie sixth-round pick Jeremy Lane has started the past two games in Browner's place with veterans Walter Thurmond and Marcus Trufant sidelined by hamstring injuries.
