And Browner should provide leadership and consistency on Seattle's defense in 2016, with the Seahawks looking to rebound after going 10-6 and losing to the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Divisional Game.

Browner was signed by the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon State in 2011. Hopefully, Browner rebounds well enough that the Seahawks can have a clearer path back to the Super Bowl. He was suspended at the time for violating the league's policy on use of performance-enhancing drugs.

In 2014 he would move on to the New England Patriots where he indeed would get the chance to feel Super Bowl glory, helping the Pats capture another ring while destroying his former team's hopes for a repeat in the process. He was released by the Saints in February after committing the most penalties in a single season since 2001.

Browner, in his career, has tallied 187 total tackles and 12 interceptions. He was flagged 24 times, 21 of which were accepted.

He recorded 63 tackles and one interception over 16 games in a trying 2015 season as he battled through a torn MCL.

The Seahawks struggled to find a suitable cornerback opposite Sherman last season.

Browner was an original member of Seattle's Legion of Boom secondary and an integral part of the Super Bowl XLVIII winning team.
