Brandon Browner, a former NFL cornerback and key player in Super Bowl XLIX, already is spending eight years in prison for attempted murder. He now has another legal problem.

Via TMZ.com, a former girlfriend has sued Browner for multiple alleged acts of domestic violence. She claims, among other things, that he hit her across the face, that he knocked her unconscious on a different occasion, and that he caused her face to suffer rug burn on yet another occasion.

She also claims that Browner attacked her while she slept on more than one occasion, and that a month before the attempted murder that put him in prison he broke into her home and pinned her to a couch for 15 minutes.

Browner, 34, won consecutive Super Bowls with the Seahawks and Patriots. His recognition of the goal-line pass at the conclusion of Super Bowl XLIX prevented a Seahawks receiver from executing a pick of cornerback Malcolm Butler, allowing Butler to intercept Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and seal the championship.

Undrafted in 2005, a successful stint in Canada caught Seattle’s eye in 2011. Browner then spent three years with the Seahawks, one with the Patriots, one with the Saints, and a final season with Seattle in 2016.

  1. Since he played for the Pats, I’m sure Kraft will get him out of it.

  2. Another classy Patriots. Thank God we have the Patriots and the Cowboys to fill up the off-season football news. To bad it always has to do with players being criminals.

  3. No matter how good they are on the field, the Patriots are a pack of criminals off of it.

  4. 5 years in the CFL, THREE years with the Seahawks, ONE with the Patriots, and 1 with the Saints. Yet, the comments are primarily dogging the Patriots for being associated with this guy… you haters are downright silly at times…

    His parents must be so proud of him.
    Why hasn’t the NFLPA commented on this? After all they represented him.

    The NFLPA hasn’t commented on this for the same reason police unions don’t comment on former cops after they commit crimes.

  6. he played one year out of six for the pats so when he turns out to be a bad guy, he’s a pat for life. comes with being america’s team i suppose.

    And the UFCW never comments when a good worker commits a crime, The UAW never comments when a go employee commits a crime. It’s almost like unions just don’t comment on their members lives
