Brandon Browner: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Browner's status for Sunday's game against the Bills is now cloudy, with a wait-and-see approach from a fantasy perspective thus in order with regard to the cornerback, who was recently reinstated following a four-game suspension to start the season.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Browner could have been activated by the Patriots prior to Sunday night's game against the Bengals, but evidently, the team's coaching staff felt that the cornerback wasn't quite ready to play in Week 5. With Brian Tyms also activated by the team, the Patriots will need to make a pair of corresponding roster moves to accommodate the addition of the duo.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Once he's up to speed, Browner is in line to carve out a role at cornerback for the Patriots opposite Darrelle Revis, but until he sees a full and productive game, a wait-and-see approach is in order from an IDP perspective.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
