Former Seahawks CB Brandon Browner Sentenced to 8 Years in Prison

Former Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner

According to TMZ, Browner appeared in court Tuesday and "pled no contest to 1 count of attempted murder and 2 counts of willful child endangerment" in exchange for having three other charges dropped. Browner was immediately remanded into custody during the hearing and is back behind bars, but he did receive credit for 300 days for the time he's spent behind bars since he was taken into police custody after his arrest in July. He then fled the residence while stealing a Rolex watch.

In the past two years, he has been arrested on suspicion of domestic battery, child endangerment and possessing cocaine. Her two children were present when the alleged abuse occurred.

It escalated, police said, with Browner physically harming and threatening to kill the woman, who he was previously in a relationship with.

Brandon Browner is going away for a while.

Browner, 34, was charged in July for an incident in La Verne, California.

He won a Super Bowl with Seattle after the 2013 season, but did not play due to a groin injury and was later suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

The former Seahawks, Patriots and Saints cornerback was sentenced to eight years in state prison following his plea. In Seattle, he was a member of the "Legion of Boom" defensive backfield, leaving to join the Patriots as a free agent in 2014 for one year.

For such an egregious act, it seems the former Pro Bowler is getting off fairly easy.
