Pittman signed as a free agent with the Texans in September of 2003. He played in 92 games for Houston, appearing in every game for the Texans after he signed with the club until he had to serve his suspension last season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. "We've agreed to a one-year deal and Bryan has already begun working out in the Seahawks offseason program," said Kevin Gold, Pittman's agent. "Seattle is his home town and Bryan is excited about his new opportunity. He wants to put the events of last year behind him." Pittman, who played college football at the University of Washington, was one of six players suspended by the NFL in 2008 for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Pittman maintained he took a weight-loss medication that his doctor prescribed for him and that he never took steroids which his attorney said was substantiated during the appeal process. Pittman lost his appeal because the weight-loss medication is on the NFL's list of banned substances and had to serve a four-game suspension. He had a string of 598 consecutive successful snaps broken in 2007.
