Former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner was arrested in Los Angeles Monday night on felony charges of making criminal threats.

According to TMZ, Brown was charged with making threats to a woman. He was taken into custody, posted a $50,000 bond and was released late last night.

The former member of the Legion of Boom has been out of the NFL since the Seahawks released him in August 2016, after trying to convert him to safety. He played in the developmental Spring League in West Virginia but hasn’t resurfaced in a camp since.

He spent the 2015 season with the Saints and 2014 with the Patriots, when he won a Super Bowl ring against his old team.

  1. He spent just one season with the Patriots, the same as the Saints after that, and most of his career — including most recently — with the Seahawks. Yet somehow the picture that’s used is with his time with the Patriots.

  2. Geez. The pic is of the peek of his career. That’s a Super Bowl picture. Light up. Nobody is saying you personally did anything wrong just because of a picture attached to a story about a former player that is now in trouble with the law.

    Sticks and stone may break my bones but pictures attached to a story about someone else will not hurt me.

  3. It’s interesting how you all get upset that the picture might impugn your team by association, but then you’ll scream for Ezekiel Elliot to be let off the hook.

  4. “but then you’ll scream for Ezekiel Elliot to be let off the hook.”

    Because there’s substantial evidence Elliott did not cause the injuries to the woman, that’s why.

  5. If you’re a Pats fan and you’re mad about the pic being used you should step away from your keyboard and go outside.

    Then again, I’d be peeved too if Alex Smith outplayed Tom Brady

  6. Because there’s substantial evidence Elliott did not cause the injuries to the woman, that’s why

    There’s substantial evidence Tiffany Thompson lied in the course of various investigations, but it is incorrect to say there is substantial evidence Elliott did not injure her.

  7. There are many good and rational New England fans on this site, such as factschecker for example.
    But what is it with some of you Patriots fans? More than a few of you whine like little girls over the most trivial things.
    Brandon Browner did in fact play for YOUR team, and AFTER Seattle had moved on from him. You had no problem winning a Super Bowl with him in a Patriots uniform, yet when he gets in trouble you want somebody else to take all the blame?
    Browner was linked to Seattle in the headline, to New England in the photo, and to all three teams he played for in the story. Deal with it. Stop always acting like little children being picked on.

    ======================================================

    No, there’s substantial evidence that he did not injure her because not only did she admit in her text that it happened in a bar fight but she also planned in advance to pin it on Elliot. No amount of thumbs downs can change that fact. Not only that, but the fried she texted signed a sworn affidavit confirming it.

    There’s also substantial evidence Tom Bradylied in the course of particular investigations…just sayin’ 😉

  10. X bam : you seem to be confused, there is ample evidence the NFL lied, Starting with 11/12 Footballs being “2 pounds under”!. Tom on the other hand, no evidence!
    Just like the NFL said to Judge Berman , they had no evidence against Tom!
    Roger That!

  11. There’s also substantial evidence Tom Bradylied in the course of particular investigations…just sayin’ 😉

    Ummm…. actually, there’s zero evidence Tom Brady lied about anything. There is however proof that Roger Goodell lied along with some of his fellow Park Ave. execs. They did so under oath, by the way. So who’s the criminal?

  12. Brandon Browner PED Brandon Browner Patriots Uniform, Brandon Browner criminal threat Patriots Uniform, Tom Brady Deflategate, Patriots Uniform, SpyGate, Patriots uniform, PEDgate, patriots uniform, Snowpplowgate, Patriots Uniform, On and on left out about 10 gates. AaronHernanadezGate, ouch that was a low blow.

    Someday you’ll get it. It doesn’t matter what the legal ramifications are, it makes the League look bad when idiots keep getting into trouble. That’s what “conduct unbecoming” is about.

  14. Stupid comments about which uniform is depicted.

    As a Patriots fan, I was very happy with BB’s time here. Before the big play in the SB, he grabbed the unknown rookie, Malcolm Butler, and told him to be aware of the slant that they practiced against.

    Malcolm Butler then became a household name, thanks somewhat to Brandon Browner.
