Brandon Browner reportedly arrested for making criminal threats against woman
Former NFL defensive back Brandon Browner was reportedly arrested in Los Angeles Monday night and charged with making criminal threats, which is a felony in the state of California.
According to TMZ, Browner is accused of making criminal threats against a woman. He was taken into custody on Monday evening and released at around 11 p.m. after posting $50,000 bail.
Browner, an undrafted free agent, was part of the original “Legion of Boom” with the Seattle Seahawks from 2011-2013. After winning a Super Bowl in Seattle, he was part of a championship team with the New England Patriots in 2014 and spent a season with the New Orleans Saints in 2015. Browner re-signed with the Seahawks last offseason but did not make the final roster. He appeared to announce his retirement back in January, but he is still technically a free agent.
The Seahawks were planning to convert Browner to safety, but the experiment failed. The 33-year-old played in the developmental Spring League this past offseason but was not invited to training camp with any team.
