Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner says the only change for him in 2014 will be relocating 3,000 miles to the east.
Browner said today that the Patriots’ coaches tell him he’ll play a very similar role in New England to the role he played in Seattle.
“A lot of the stuff I’ll be doing on defense I did in Seattle,” Browner said, via the Boston Herald. “The only thing that changes is the terminology. I was also told I’ll play a lot of man to man, which is my strong suit. I take it in stride and can’t wait to get back out there.”
Browner said what he does best is play man-to-man coverage against wide receivers, and he’ll be doing a lot of that.
“They haven’t talked to me about playing safety,” Browner said. “So far, I’m here to play cornerback, and I play wherever need be. I just want to play some football, and I’m fortunate enough to play for a team like the Pats.”
Browner is suspended for the first four games of the regular season, but he’ll be able to go through the entire offseason program, training camp and the preseason. The Patriots think he’ll be ready to do everything he did in Seattle, starting in Week Five.
