Brandon Browner (knee) is listed as probable for the AFC Championship Game.
Browner suffered a knee injury late in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Ravens. He was limited in practice this week, but his status was never in doubt. With Darrelle Revis expected to shadow T.Y. Hilton, Browner will cover Donte Moncrief and Reggie Wayne. Jan 16 - 4:48 PM

Brandon Browner said he won't miss any time despite leaving Saturday's win over the Ravens with a knee injury.

Browner, the oversized bookend to Darrelle Revis, left in the third quarter and did not return. "I feel good," he said after the game. "Just being cautious." Logan Ryan will be the next man up in the AFC Championship Game if Browner's optimism proves unfounded.

Patriots RCB Brandon Browner was forced from New England's Divisional Round win over the Ravens with a knee injury.

Browner went down in the second half, and did not return. He committed a huge defensive pass interference penalty on Torrey Smith before getting injured. Browner was thoroughly average during the regular season, but would be a big loss for a Pats team that will have to slow either Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck in the AFC Championship Game.
Jan 10 - 9:39 PM

Patriots CB Brandon Browner expects to make his 2014 debut in Thursday's game against the Jets.

It's unclear if Browner will immediately slide in opposite Darrelle Revis. We'd guess he'll be on a snap count against the Jets. Browner hasn't played since last Week 10 with the Seahawks.

Patriots CB Brandon Browner will not play in Week 6 against the Bills.

Browner was activated this week, but still isn't ready to make his Patriots debut. Alfonzo Dennard will likely start opposite LCB Darrelle Revis.

Patriots activated RCB Brandon Browner from suspension.

Browner figures to be eased into the lineup across from LCB Darrelle Revis, but should play in Week 6 against the Bills, perhaps on a limited basis. Browner is a 6-foot-4, 221-pound press coverage maven formerly of Seattle.

Patriots CB Brandon Browner is unlikely to play in Week 5 against the Bengals.

Browner is eligible to be activated from the suspended list, but missed the last month of practice and needs time to get into football shape. He'll likely return in Week 6, and could start opposite Darrelle Revis.

Patriots activated CB Brandon Browner from the reserve/suspended list.

Browner will enter the mix at cornerback this week, but may not immediately start opposite Darrelle Revis. He'll likely need a few weeks to get back into football shape.

Brandon Browner confirmed he will play cornerback in New England.

Some observers speculated that teams might envision Browner at safety before free agency, ostensibly due to his size (6'4/221), but he is a straight-line player without hip fluidity and would be stretched mightily in "center field." Browner is a pure press corner who figures to man up with No. 2 receivers in Foxboro, while Darrelle Revis chases No. 1s and Kyle Arrington takes the slot.

Patriots signed CB Brandon Browner to a three-year, $17 million contract.

Browner also received interest from the Redskins, Saints, and Jets before signing with the Patriots. It's a slightly longer contract than expected, as New England initially only offered a two-year deal. The $5.6 million annually places Browner among the top-seven cornerbacks in the league in terms of average salary. Browner is suspended for the first four games of 2014, but will start on the outside opposite Darrelle Revis when reinstated. The Patriots have drastically improved their secondary this offseason and plan to run a physical man-to-man scheme with Browner and Revis.

Free agent CB Brandon Browner's visit to the Redskins has been canceled, and he remains in New England.

Perhaps the Skins called off their visit after signing Tracy Porter. Browner was believed to be in pretty serious talks with the Patriots as recently as Thursday evening. Our money is now on Brander signing with New England.

Updating a previous item, Profootballtalk reports free agent CB Brandon Browner will visit the Redskins on Friday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter also reports Browner will travel to D.C. on Friday. The visit was initially scheduled for Thursday but was pushed back a day because Browner's visit with the Patriots lasted longer than expected. Browner, 30 in August, is also talking with the Saints and Raiders. Stay tuned for more twists.

Free agent CB Brandon Browner cancelled his visit with the Redskins.

Browner is believed to still be up in the Boston area trying to finalize a deal to join the Patriots. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport initially reported Browner was signing a two-year deal with New England. Browner's agent vehemently denied the report, but we have no reason to believe a deal won't get done.
Fri, Mar 14, 2014 09:43:00 AM

A "well-placed" team source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter that free agent CB Brandon Browner is close to an agreement with the Patriots, but that it's a "tough deal to do because of suspension, etc."

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that Browner has "spread the word to those close to him" that he's agreed to terms with the Pats, but his agent vehemently denies it. Browner's rep has spoken directly with many reporters. As such, the deal can't be considered official, but it likely will be some time in the next 24 hours.
Thu, Mar 13, 2014 10:48:00 PM

Free agent CB Brandon Browner will visit the Saints if he leaves his Redskins visit without a deal.

There are reports that Browner has signed a two-year deal with the Patriots, but they've been strongly refuted by his agent. We're leaving him unsigned for the time being. We knew the Saints were "looking at" Browner, but not that he had a visit scheduled. Despite Browner's four-game suspension to begin the season, he'd be a nice get for either Washington or New Orleans.
