10:27 AM ET 05.19 | For the sixth time since 2011, a player for the Seattle Seahawks violated the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. The latest Seattle player to run afoul of the league's drug policy is second-year pro Bruce Irvin. Other Seahawks who tested positive: Cornerback Brandon Browner, who was suspended for the final four games of the 2012 regular season after reportedly testing positive for Adderall. Safety Winston Guy, who was suspended by the league for four games in 2012. Guy did not appeal the suspension. Guy's agent, Greg Linton, said his client tested positive for an over-the-counter substance that's on the NFL's lengthy list of banned substances. Offensive lineman John Moffitt was suspended for four games without pay in December, 2011. According to Moffitt's agent, Michael George, his client was suspended for taking a drug used to treat hyperactivity, and that Moffitt did not notify the league he was taking the drug. Offensive lineman Allen Barbre was suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season. The Seahawks released Barbre that October after he finished serving his suspension. Cornerback Richard Sherman was suspended for four games in 2012 for reportedly taking Adderall, but the decision was reversed when Sherman won his appeal on grounds that the sample was contaminated because of a leaky cup.

Whatever happened to that drug scandal with the Saints from a few years back?

They suspended their head coach and GM for a year and made them fire their defensive coordinator.

Yeah, I know that was for some head hunting thing but the league office figured enough was enough.

Yep, although not a PED and will still land them on the suspended list but at least will be mellow about it.
