Police Investigating Brandon Browner For Assault

Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner has been named in a police report by the father-in-law of Browner’s girlfriend, Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times reports. The man claims Browner assaulted him on Tuesday night.

The man claimed the 31-year-old cornerback assaulted him in the driveway of Browner’s Pomona, California, home, according to a police report. No charges have been filed yet, with the Pomona Police Department determining if enough evidence exists to justify a warrant for Browner’s arrest, Jenks reports.

Browner left the residence before police arrived, and the alleged victim refused medical treatment at the scene.

The veteran cornerback returned to the Seahawks this offseason after signing with the Saints in 2015. He endured a rough season in New Orleans after being part of two Super Bowl championship teams — the 2013 Seahawks and 2014 Patriots. Browner missed the 2013 playoffs because of an indefinite suspension due to the violation of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

The league reinstated the physical corner in March of 2014, however, Browner served a drug-related suspension to start the ’14 campaign. Browner is signed for a non-guaranteed $760K with the Seahawks but will count $4.05MM against the Saints’ cap this season.

      A minimum salary, non-guaranteed deal? There’s is almost no reason to “hate” this signing. Even a player with red flags is a bargain with that type of contract because the team can easily cut bait.

    If this is true, it would be the first time Brandon Browner has hit anyone since he signed that deal with the Saints
