Seahawks released S Brandon Browner.
The Seahawks were trying to convert Browner from a press corner into a safety, and it didn't work. Browner is likely all out of gas at age 32. He has been released by the Patriots, Seahawks, and Saints over the past two offseasons. Mon, Aug 29, 2016 04:54:00 PM

The Pomona (Cali.) police are investigating Brandon Browner for an alleged assault.

Browner is accused of assaulting the father of his child's mother. Little details are known at this point, but the man filed a police report and said he suffered a hand injury in the attack. Training camp badly needs to get here soon.

Seahawks S/CB Brandon Browner's primary role this season could be matching up with opposing tight ends.

Coach Pete Carroll has already said Browner will play a "unique," hybrid-safety role, and much of that role could be shadowing tight ends in sub packages. The Seahawks were among the worst in the league against tight ends last season, and Browner had some success matching up with them while in New England. After being routinely roasted on the outside for New Orleans last season, it sounds like Browner will play almost all of his snaps in the box this year.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Brandon Browner will play a hybrid safety role this season.

"We’re going to play him at safety in base downs and then in nickel, we’re going to use him to match up in different spots to play inside," Carroll said. "So we may be able to develop a really unique role for him." Browner has been a disaster in coverage on the outside the last two years, but he has great size (6'4/221) and has always graded out well in run defense. A role in which he is asked to cover tight ends and help out in the run game could suit him.

Seahawks agreed to terms with CB Brandon Browner on a one-year contract.

Browner was arguably the NFL's worst cornerback in New Orleans last season -- notoriously committing 23 penalties and getting routinely dusted deep -- but claims he played through a torn MCL. Now entering his age-32 campaign, Browner will try to salvage his career where it began after the Seahawks signed him out of the CFL in 2011. Browner still has long arms and a huge body (6'4/221). He'll compete with Jeremy Lane, Deshawn Shead, Tharold Simon, and perhaps a draft pick for snaps across from Richard Sherman.

Free agent CB Brandon Browner said he played through a torn MCL last season.

Browner suffered the injury during Week 1 of the preseason. He didn't miss regular-season games, but it partly explains his 2015 struggles. Browner hasn't had any free-agent interest since his release from the Saints.

Saints released CB Brandon Browner.

New Orleans will designate Browner as a post-June 1 cut, saving them an extra $1.3 million against the cap this season by adding $1.3 million in dead money to the 2017 cap. Just keep kicking that can down the road. Browner was the worst corner in the league last season. His market should be frigid.

PFT's Mike Florio reports the Saints will release CB Brandon Browner on the first day of the new league year, March 9.

To the surprise of nobody. Browner already indicated earlier this month that he's getting the boot from the Saints; the team just has to wait until the new league year opens to make the move official. Browner, entering his age-32 campaign, was by far the league's worst cornerback all of last season.

Saints CB Brandon Browner strongly hinted on Twitter that he's being released by New Orleans.

"I truly did love the city, really wanted to do well," Browner wrote. "Some of the best people, best hospitality, and food. And a city that will show you a good time. How could you beat that?" Browner was a colossal bust for the Saints after signing a three-year, $15 million contract last offseason. He was easily the worst corner in the league in 2015 and committed a league-high 23 penalties. The Saints will save just $950,000 against the cap by releasing him.

Saints CB Brandon Browner has been penalized a league-high 14 times this season.

It is four more than the next most penalized defensive back and more than double the fifth-most penalized corner. When he is not grabbing opposing receivers, Browner is usually watching them run by him for big gains. Browner has been one of the worst corners in the league this season, and the Saints have to find a way to get him out of the lineup.

Saints RCB Brandon Browner (leg) has returned to practice.

Browner was sidelined the last three weeks, but has been cleared for individual drills. It’s good news for the Saints, who will be without Keenan Lewis for 4-6 weeks. Delvin Breaux, Stanley Jean-Baptiste, and Damian Swann will open the year in expanded roles opposite Browner.

Saints signed CB Brandon Browner, formerly of the Patriots, to a three-year, $15 million contract.

The deal makes sense on paper as the Saints needed to shore up their secondary and Browner was one of the best cornerbacks left available. Browner was pursued by Cleveland and Washington prior to signing with New Orleans. The Saints could use a playmaker in the secondary after forcing just 12 interceptions last season, ninth-fewest in the NFL. Unfortunately for them, Browner is better at getting flagged for pass interference than taking the ball away from the offense.

The Saints are close to signing former Patriots CB Brandon Browner.

A source told Profootballtalk the deal is "almost finished." The Saints were also showing interest in former Packer Tramon Williams, though that ship has likely sailed now that Browner is a John Hancock away from joining the team. The Patriots made almost no effort to retain him, perhaps because of Browner's penchant for getting flagged. Browner also got beat several times on deep balls last season, though his tight coverage on Jermaine Kearse helped Malcolm Butler catch the game-winning interception in last month's Super Bowl. He's one of the biggest corners in the league at 6'4" and 221 pounds.
Thu, Mar 12, 2015 02:07:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Saints are offering free agent CB Brandon Browner more than $5 million per year.

With Patrick Robinson a free agent, Keenan Lewis coming off an injury-plagued down season, and 2014 second-rounder Stanley Jean-Baptiste playing just eight snaps as a rookie, the Saints are desperate for corner help. Browner is expected to have a hot market as he attempts to land one more big contract.
Thu, Mar 12, 2015 10:40:00 AM

ESPN 980 Washington reports free agent Brandon Browner plans to visit the Redskins.

Browner visited the Saints on Wednesday. It's unclear if he's left town without a deal, or when he would visit Washington.
