Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters on Wednesday that it’s possible they could re-sign veteran DB Brandon Browner at some point, per Bob Condotta.
Carroll explained that the decision to release Browner was due in part to the fact that they “ran out of time” converting him to safety, as well as their other players beat him out for the job.
Browner, 32, 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.
The Seahawks later re-signed Browner to a one-year, $760,000 contract contract this past April before cutting him a few days ago.
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.
