The suspension stems from Brown consuming Mexican beef while on vacation in Mexico.
The NFL Players Association proved to the NFL that this was the reason Brown tested positive for clenbuterol. They also issues a letter warning players that consumption of too much meat in Mexico and China could cause a positive test for the anabolic substance clenbuterol.
Brown, 30, is in the fourth year of his seven-year, $56.2 million contract that includes $22.08 million guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $7 million in 2015 and 2016.
In 2015, Brown appeared in 14 games for the Texans and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 13 offensive tackle out of 77 qualifying players.
