Saints Will Release CB Brandon Browner On March 9

Pro Football Talk reports that the Saints are planning to release veteran CB Brandon Browner on March 9, which is the start of the new league year.

A few weeks ago, Browner posted a goodbye to his teammates and the city of New Orleans on Instagram and Twitter, implying that the team has parted ways with him.

New Orleans was hoping to solidify their secondary when they signed Browner to a contract last year. However, it was almost as though he was liability for them, considering the number of personal foul penalties he drew this past season.

Browner, 31, signed a three-year, $15 million contract that included $7.75 million guaranteed. He was set to make base salary of $2.75 million in 2016 and 2017.

According to, releasing Browner would free up $950,000 in available cap space while creating $5,350,000 in dead money. Should the Saints make Browner a post-June 1 release, they would create $2,250,000 in cap space.

In 2015, Browner appeared in all 16 games and recorded 76 tackles, one interception, a fumble recovery and 10 pass defenses for the Saints.
