Saints Making A “Major Push” To Sign CB Brandon Browner


Ian Rapoport reports that the Saints made a “major push” to sign free agent CB Brandon Browner on Wednesday, which included making him an offer that would pay him $5 million per year.

  • Rapoport adds that the Saints signing Browner could very well happen.
  • HC Sean Payton is reportedly looking for a “locker room enforcer.”
  • Last night, Chris Russell reportedly that Browner is still set to visit the Redskins after he met with the Saints on Wednesday.


ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports former Patriots CB Brandon Browner has lined up visits with the Saints and Redskins.

  • Schefter adds that Browner’s first visit will be with the Saints.
  • Pro Football Talk reports that Ravens, Browns, Jaguars are also interested in him.

Browner would not accept a pay cut to be back in New England, which led to them declining to exercise his option. Browner is now a free agent and appears to have a serious market developing for his services.

Browner, 30, had two years remaining on his three-year, $15.15 million contract, which includes base salaries of $1.9 million in 2015 and 2016, but it all came down to his option and the fact that he would have counted $4.8 million against the team’s cap in 2015.

New England freed up $4.8 million in available cap space by declining Browner’s option.

Last year, Browner appeared in nine games for the Patriots and recorded 25 tackles, one interception and six pass defenses.
