Former Seahawks player charged with attempted murder
A former Super Bowl champion was charged with attempted murder yesterday. Brandon Browner, a former NFL cornerback who scored Super Bowl rings with both the Seahawks and the Pats, was arrested this past Sunday after a bizarre incident at a home east of Los Angeles. He is scheduled to be arraigned on July 30.
Browner allegedly broke into the apartment of an ex-girlfriend where he attempted to murder her. Prosecutors have said that he entered the apartment and chased and dragged his ex around before trying to suffocate her using a carpet. He fled the scene, but not before stealing a Rolex watch worth around $20,000. The 33-year-old player is looking at charges of attempted murder, residential theft, as well as other crimes.
Browner is originally from California and played for Oregon State University before being picked up by the Seahawks in 2011. He played for the team when it won the 2013 Super Bowl and then was shipped to New England to play for the Pats, where he won his second ring. He played for the team for one season, moving to the Saints the following year. He held a spot on the roster for just one year before re-signing with the Seahawks in 2016, but was released from the team prior to the start of the season.
