Report: Brandon Browner To Visit Redskins

Cornerback Brandon Browner, an unrestricted free agent, has won Super Bowl titles with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, has 11 career interceptions and two touchdowns.

Five-year veteran cornerback Brandon Browner is scheduled to visit with the Washington Redskins this week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.


Browner, 30, an Oregon State product, is coming off a Super Bowl-winning campaign with the New England Patriots, in which he played in nine games and had an interception to go along with 25 tackles and seven passes defensed.

Browner also collected a Super Bowl title in 2013 with the Seattle Seahawks, playing in eight games that year with 19 tackles, one interception and 10 passes defensed.

Browner's best year came with the Seahawks in 2011, when he was named to the Pro Bowl after intercepting six passes, returning two of them for touchdowns, including a 94-yard score.

Browner – a larger defensive back at 6-foot-4 and 221 pounds – began his professional football career in 2005 as an undrafted free agent with the Denver Broncos, but missed the entire season with a broken arm.

He would spend the next four seasons with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League, where he was named a CFL All-Star three times and won a Grey Cup in 2008.

The Redskins are looking to add depth to a cornerback corps that had its ups and downs during the 2014 season, when veteran DeAngelo Hall was lost for the year after suffering a torn Achilles Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Hall recently restructured his contract to return to the Redskins.

Washington in 2015 also returns David Amerson, Bashaud Breeland and Tracy Porter at the cornerback position. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said free agent cornerback Perrish Cox is also visiting with the Redskins on Wednesday.

Browner, meanwhile, is also scheduled to visit with the New Orleans Saints, according to Schefter.
