The Seahawks may be down a backup offensive lineman for the first four games of the season.

Howard Balzer of ESPN 101 Radio reports that tackle Allen Barbre has been suspended four games by the league. There’s no word on what league rule Barbre may have violated to lead to the suspension.

Barbre played four games for the Seahawks last season without making a start and was expected to be part of a competition for reserve spots this offseason. The Seahawks currently have 15 offensive linemen on the roster and the team has added veterans Alex Barron and Frank Omiyale at tackle. Barbre’s possible absence for the first quarter of the season won’t be of great help in the fight for places on the roster.

Barbre was a fourth-round pick of the Packers in 2007. He’s also spent time with the Dolphins since entering the league.

    Allen Barbre could be the worst offensive lineman in the NFL.

    Drugged out dope couldn’t even spell Barber properly, much less visit one to fix his hair.

    Had the right mentality to play OL, just lacked the brain bower, footwork, hand-eye coordination and, well, the general football skills.

    Not drafted high, but definitely one of TT’s biggest misses. Surprised Schneider went in on this guy at all.

    If you think he’s bad wait till you see his backup… Frank Ohmygod.

    Frank OMG will make him look like a first ballot hall of famer.

    Shame…..At Missouri Southern we all knew he did steroids. Nice guy and everything just wasnt much before roids and now it caught up to him

    And for some folks he’ll forever be remembered as the draft pick that TT wouldn’t part with for Randy Moss.

    Brandon Marshall wants an apology.

    This is in good fun; I don’t seriously believe this and am not a Saints fan. Looks like the league now isn’t letting the players know why the are suspended along with not producing the evidence.
