Ex-NFL Player Brandon Browner Sentenced to 8 Years in Prison

Former Seattle Seahawks defensive back Brandon Browner has been sentenced to eight years in California state prison after he plead no contest to attempted murder, TMZ reports.

Reports at the time indicated that Browner "allegedly physically harmed and made threats to kill the victim inside the residence" and stole a $200,000 Rolex watch. He was also arrested on charges of robbery, burglary, false imprisonment and child endangerment, per the La Verne Police Department's statement. He's been in custody since the arrest back in July. Browner was arrested and charged with several felonies, including burglary, false imprisonment, and violation of a restraining order. Her two children were present throughout the entire ordeal.

In June, he pleaded no contest in Los Angeles County Superior Court to misdemeanor charges of battery and cruelty to a child by inflicting injury.

According to the Times, prosecutors alleged then that Browner inflicted "unjustifiable pain and mental suffering" against the women's 2-year-old and used "force and violence" against her.

In a briefing to reporters, he also said the United States did not yet have a "specific agreement" on auto tariffs. Trump addressed one of the concerns by indicating he would not be opposed to extending the 90-day truce.

Brandon Browner is going away for a while.

The former National Football League player was a two-time Super Bowl champion and original member of the Legion of Boom with the Seahawks.

Browner, 34, won Super Bowl XLIX with the Patriots, engaging with receiver Jermaine Kearse to help set a lane for Malcolm Butler to make the game-saving interception at the goal line.

He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2011.
