According to a post on Browner's Instagram account, the controversial corner will return to the Seattle Seahawks after being cut by the New Orleans Saints.

Browner played his collegiate football at Oregon State from 2002-04, where he started every game he played in for the Beavers.

Over the course of his six-year NFL career, Browner has started all 55 regular season games he's appeared in and has registered 218 tackles (187 solo), 12 interception returns for 340 yards with two touchdowns and 53 passes defended.

Browner signed with the Patriots in the 2014 offseason, opening all nine regular season contests he appeared in and posted 26 tackles (22 solo), a 32-yard interception return and six passes defensed for the Super Bowl XLIX champions. He then opened all three postseason games and made seven tackles (six solo) and one pass defensed.

Browner, a native of Sylmar, Calif., has won two Super Bowls, one with the Patriots and the other with the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. In his first full NFL season in 2011, Browner was selected to the Pro Bowl when he posted a team-high six interceptions with two touchdowns and defensed 23 passes.
