NFL Rumors: Brandon Browner Returning To Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks' famed 'The Legion of Boom' is getting up and ready for a warm welcome and reunion as veteran cornerback Brandon Browner moves back West to jump on board the team he used to call home.
The report of his comeback has been revealed to the public through ESPN's Adam Shefter's recent tweet which attracted a stream of reactions from Seahawks fans.
"Legion of Boom reunited: Seattle reached agreement with CB Brandon Browner, per source. Browner, Sherman, Thomas, Chancellor together again," Shefter's tweet said as quoted by Fansided.
Browner had been an important part of 2011-13 Seahawks remarkable and dreaded defensive backfields as they raced past the Denver Broncos in their winning bid for the Super Bowl. However, he was barred to play in Seahawks Super Bowl win following his suspension over his violation of NFL's substance abuse policy. He was handed down with four-game suspension as a punishment.
Browner will enter one-year contract with his former employer which would bring him back together with Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor according to Sports Illustrated.
Since his departure from the Seahawks, Browner has bounced back around NFL with his unremarkable stint at New England Patriots in 2014 and the New Orleans Saints last season.
As reported by ESPN, the 31-year-old cornerback posted the following record: 76 tackles, 10 passes defended, an interception while struggling to fit in Saints' gameplay, and 24 penalties (21 accepted). His penalties by far are the most awarded to a player in a single season according to the sports broadcasting channel's stats and information bureau.
His stint with Saints was marred with numerous problems over defense partly because of injury issues. Just recently, Browner revealed that he played most of his 2015 season with a torn MCL.
"I never wanted to make an excuse, so I played thru it," Browner said as quoted by NFL.com. He further noted, "... Last year was the most frustrating year for me, those who know me knew I was affected by it."
