The Seattle Seahawks and Brandon Browner couldn’t recreate the magic of his first tenure with the team, releasing the cornerback-turned-safety, unable to convert his positions in time for the season to begin and be happy with the result.
Pete Carroll said of the 32-year old that two sides might get back together again, which means the Seahawks will be looking out on the availability of Browner during the season, if injuries call for a secondary replacement. Browner might end up playing for someone else by then, so who knows? However, if he can’t make the cut down to 75, is he really good enough for anyone in the NFL at this point?
Browner has declined each season since his rookie year in 2011, one of the Legion of Boom originals, going undrafted in 2005, and then moving around, playing in the CFL too and starring in Canada before signing with the Seahawks in 2011. He was part of the 2013 team that won the Super Bowl, although he didn’t play against the Broncos in the actual game, due to a suspension for again violating the NFL’s performance enhancing drug rules.
He was reinstated in March 2014, but didn’t play for the Seahawks again. He played for the New England Patriots in 2014, helping a revamped secondary play its part in the Patriots winning the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks. He joined the New Orleans Saints, starting in all 16 games for them last season, but finishing with just one interception, and being part of a defensive unit that didn’t really impress anyone as the Saints missed the playoffs.
