Seahawks

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll mentioned during an appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Brock and Salk” show that they plan to use veteran CB Brandon Browner as a safety in their base defense and move him around in nickel situations.

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, via ESPN.com. “So we may be able to develop a really unique role for him.

“We’ve seen him play, back to his New England days, they used him quite a bit inside, and he really matched up on tight ends and slot receivers and things like that,” Carroll said. “He matched up well. We’re going to see that develop.”
