The Saints elected to released Browner back in March after spending just one season with the team. 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.
This will be Browner’s second stint with the Seahawks after spending the first three years of his career in Seattle. It is, however, worth mentioning that Browner played through the 2015 season with a torn MCL injury.
Browner, 31, was in the second year of his three-year, $15 million contract that included $7.75 million guaranteed with the Saints and was set to make a base salary of $2.75 million in 2016 when he was cut loose.
In 2015, Browner appeared in all 16 games and recorded 76 tackles, one interception, a fumble recovery and 10 pass defenses for the Saints. Pro Football Focus rated him as their last place cornerback out of 111 qualifying players from last season.
