Ex-Seahawk Brandon Browner sentenced to 8 years in attempted murder case

Former Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner was sentenced to eight years in a state prison on Tuesday after pleading no contest to an attempted murder murder charge, TMZ Sports reports.

The 34-year old has been in custody since his arrest back in July and did receive credit for 300 days already served.

During the incident, Browner was accused of breaking through a locked window and also stealing his former girlfriend's $20,000 Rolex watch. In exchange, the remaining charges of robbery, burglary and false imprisonment were dropped. Browner was identified as the intruder and allegedly physically forced his ex-girlfriend back into the home when she attempted to escape.

Browner reportedly violated his restraining order that brought by the woman who he previously had a relationship with. If convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison.

Browner was arrested within hours of the incident in La Verne, which is about 30 miles east of Los Angeles. He had spent three seasons as a member of the Legion of Boom in Seattle prior to that, and he played one season in New Orleans after leaving the Patriots.

Prosecutors alleged Browner used "force and violence" against Foster and inflicted "unjustifiable physical pain and mental suffering" against a two-year-old child.

Browner signed with the Seahawks before the 2011 season and he was with the team for the Super Bowl in 2013 before being signed to the New England Patriots in March of 2014.
