Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner tweeted he has been reinstated by the NFL following his suspension in December for violating the league's policy on substance abuse.

Browner announced the news via his Twitter feed Tuesday afternoon. Browner was suspended indefinitely without pay by the league on Dec. 18. The reinstatement will make Browner a free agent as his contract with the Seahawks ended after this season.

Browner's agent, Peter Schaffer, also confirmed the reinstatement.

In his statement, Browner said he realizes playing in the NFL is a privilege, not a right. He adds, "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."
