RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The 6-4, 221-pound cornerback -- who must serve a four-game suspension to start the season, figures to start opposite Darrelle Revis upon his return the Patriots' secondary in Week 5.
A former CFL star, Browner has become a Pro Bowl cornerback for the Seahawks. At 6-4, 221, he outmuscles most receivers yet has enough speed to not get beat deep. He has nine interceptions the last two years but doesn't get enough tackle opportunities (44 tackles last season) to be an IDP option, and his passes defensed dropped from 23 in 2011 to six last year as quarterbacks stopped throwing his way. After missing four games last year to a drug suspension, he'll again line up as the starting right corner, forming perhaps the league's best cornerback tandem with Richard Sherman.
Browner is an odd story, and an even stranger sight. The former CFL product was a 16-game starter for the Seahawks last year – his first with the team and first in the NFL since he was an undrafted rookie in 2005 and spent that entire year on the IR – and he looks more like a linebacker than a cornerback at 6-4, 221. He was quite a playmaker for the Seahawks, complementing a lackluster tackle total (54) with six interceptions, two of which he took back for touchdowns, and 23 passes defended.
