Ex-NFL player Browner sentenced in attempted murder case

Brandon Browner has pleaded no contest to an attempted murder charge in California, according to TMZ.

He was arrested in July after breaking into his ex-girlfriend's apartment, chasing and dragging the woman and then trying to smother her in a carpet, investigators said.

Browner, 34, pleaded no contest to one count of attempted murder, as well as two counts of willful child endangerment, according to the report. Browner fled the scene but was later arrested without further incident. The site reported that in exchange for the pleas the robbery, burglary and false imprisonment charges were dropped. If convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison.

Browner reportedly violated his restraining order that brought by the woman who he previously had a relationship with.

Back in July, former Seahawks and Patriots star cornerback Brandon Browner, once a part of the Legion of Boom, was arrested yet again, this time on multiple charges in what looked like a very odd and concerning situation.

Police said Browner broke into his ex-girlfriend's house and threatened to kill her, as well as stole a watch worth over $20,000.

The 33-year-old spent three seasons with the Seahawks during the prime days of the Legion of Boom, but his career fell off course after his departure from the team in 2014.

Browner is a former NFL cornerback who last played in the league in 2016 with the Seattle Seahawks.
