Yes, Brandon Browner was scheduled to travel to Washington on Thursday night to visit the Redskins. No, the visit wasn’t canceled. It was moved to Friday.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports, and PFT has confirmed, that Browner’s visit to Washington will happen on Friday. Per a league source, the visit was delayed because Browner’s Thursday visit to the Patriots lasted longer than anticipated.
Negotiations also are occurring with the Saints and Raiders for Browner. While his four-game suspension to start the season could be regarded as an impediment, his availability for the offseason program, training camp, and the preseason allows him to be fully prepared for his return.
Cut by the Broncos in 2006, Browner returned to the NFL in 2011 and became a starter with the Seahawks.
Last night, Browner’s agent, Peter Schaffer, reacted angrily to a report from NFL Media that Browner had agreed to terms with the Patriots, providing a quote that is destined to land on a PFT-commissioned T-shirt: “I just wanna play hockey.”
