Brandon Browner was reportedly arrested for cocaine in May

Brandon Browner

Brandon Browner was unable to find any NFL teams that were interested in signing him this past offseason, and it probably didn’t help that the veteran cornerback was reportedly arrested for a drug-related offense.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Browner was arrested for being under the influence and in possession of cocaine in Los Angeles back in May. The 33-year-old was taken into custody, where he posed for his mugshot without a shirt on. He was reportedly released a few hours later.

If you remember, Browner was also arrested last month for allegedly making criminal threats against a woman.

Browner, an undrafted free agent, was part of the original “Legion of Boom” with the Seattle Seahawks from 2011-2013. After winning a Super Bowl in Seattle, he was part of a championship team with the New England Patriots in 2014 and spent a season with the New Orleans Saints in 2015. Browner re-signed with the Seahawks last offseason but did not make the final roster. He appeared to announce his retirement back in January, but he is still technically a free agent.

It’s safe to say Browner is not going to find work anytime soon.

Marshawn Lynch took public transit home from Raiders game

Marshawn Lynch was ejected from Thursday night’s game between the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, but fans saw plenty of him even after he departed for good in the second quarter.

Amid reports that Lynch was heading to his car to leave the stadium, a photo began making the rounds on Twitter that showed the star running back watching the game from the stands at The Coliseum.

And apparently Lynch didn’t drive his own car to the stadium. We can assume this because Beast Mode was spotted in the same get-up after the game taking public transportation home. For those who are unfamiliar with the area, BART is the Bay Area Rapid Transit.

No wonder Raiders fans love this guy.

Lynch was fortunate that the Raiders pulled out a 31-30 win. Had Oakland lost, there would have been a lot of people wondering if he would have been the difference in the game if he didn’t sprint onto the field and make contact with an official.

Aaron Rodgers says on Instagram ‘surgery went well’

Aaron Rodgers gave his fans some positive news on Thursday night.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback posted a photo on Instagram of him recovering from surgery in a hospital bed:

Surgery went well. Thanks for all the love, support, thoughts and prayers. #comebackstartsnow #riseagain #

A post shared by Aaron Rodgers (@aaronrodgers12) on

“Surgery went well. Thanks for all the love, support, thoughts and prayers. #comebackstartsnow #riseagain” Rodgers wrote as his caption.

The Packers QB suffered a broken collarbone last weekend in the team’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers have acknowledged that Rodgers may miss the rest of the season, though one report says there is a chance he returns late in the season.

Green Bay is 4-2 and will turn to Brett Hundley at quarterback moving forward.

Marshawn Lynch watches rest of Raiders game from stands

Marshawn Lynch did leave the Oakland Raiders’ locker room after being ejected from Thursday night’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he did stick around — as a fan.

First KRON’s Henry Wofford reported that Lynch had left the locker room and was headed to his car after his ejection. CBS’ Tracy Wolfson later confirmed that Lynch had left.

However, Marcus Thompson said that Lynch did not leave the stadium, and that he actually went to watch the game from the stands.

Lynch was then in the tunnel watching his team score the game-winning touchdown in a 31-30 comeback victory over Kansas City.

Lynch had just two carries for nine yards in the game. He can probably expect discipline from both the league and team for his conduct with the official and after his ejection.

Mark Davis celebrates Raiders’ surprising comeback win

The Oakland Raiders’ surprising comeback win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night was exciting enough to even get team owner Mark Davis to celebrate.

The Raiders were down 30-24 to the Chiefs and drove 85 yards to score a touchdown to tie the game with no time left, and then they won it on an extra point.

The normally reserved Davis even got excited:

You would have to check Davis’ pulse if that couldn’t even get him excited. That was one of the most thrilling finishes in the NFL this season.

Michael Crabtree and Donald Penn reportedly shove each other on sideline

Tempers reportedly flared on the Raiders’ sideline between Michael Crabtree and Donald Penn with a member of the coaching staff needing to intervene.

Late in the second quarter of Thursday’s game between the Raiders and Chiefs, CBS’ Tracy Wolfson reported frustration boiled over that resulted in Crabtree and Penn pushing and shoving each other on the sideline. Wolfson added offensive line coach Mike Tice stepped in to restore order.

Oakland came into Thursday riding a four-game losing streak. At the time Wolfson was on air, the Raiders were trailing 20-14.

NFL players come to Marshawn Lynch’s defense after ejection

Marshawn Lynch had no shortage of supporters after being ejected for making contact with an official during Thursday’s game between the Raiders and Chiefs.

During the second quarter, Lynch entered the field of play from the sideline after Derek Carr was hit late by Marcus Peters. The two teams gathered with a few players from each side exchanging words. Lynch got into the middle of things and grabbed an official. He was subsequently ejected.

Afterward, Bengals running back Joe Mixon and a couple of retired NFL players defended Lynch’s actions on social media.
