Free Agent CB Brandon Browner Returning to Seattle; Legion of Boom Reunited
Free agent CB Brandon Browner will re-sign with the Seattle Seahawks Monday, via sources involved in the deal.
Browner, a former Pro Bowl DB, was a play maker and key contributor during his first stint with the Seattle Seahawks. During this time, the Seahawks were being recognized as arguably one of the greatest defenses in NFL history.
Browner initially signed with the Seattle Seahawks in the 2011 season after a 3 year stint in the CFL. During the 2012 season, Browner was a member of the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, though he was unable to play in the Super Bowl due to a league imposed suspension.
On March 14th, 2014, Browner signed with the New England Patriots on a three-year, $17 million dollar deal. During that season, Browner was a part of the Patriots’ team that defeated his former Seahawks in Super Bowl 49. The Patriots then neglected to pick up his $2 million roster bonus, thus making him eligible for free-agency.
March 12th, 2015 – Browner signed with the New Orleans Saints where he was voted defensive captain early in the season. Though the Saints had a historically poor defense, Browner still finished the season with 76 tackles and one interception.
On February 2nd, 2016, Browner announced that he was going to be released by the Saints.
Browner Happy to be Back
Browner posted his thoughts of re-signing with Seattle on his official Instagram account:
“I’ve been excited about this one been trying to keep it to myself. Secrets out I’m grateful and can’t wait to get back to work.”
