Brandon Browner is going to the New England Patriots for the next three seasons. Browner decided to sign with the Patriots on a contract that is rumored to be worth $17.5 million over that duration. According to a report from CBS Sports on Friday (March 14), he will first have to sit out four games to start the 2014 NFL season.

The former Pro Bowl cornerback was allowed to hit free agency by the Seattle Seahawks after missing most of last season. He ended up getting suspended indefinitely by the league for violating the performance-enhancing drug policy, but was reinstated under the agreement that he would sit out four more games.

Browner took to Twitter to confirm news of joining his new team, stating that, "Today, I am proud to announce that I am a New England Patriot. I am honored that the Patriots are making me part of their legendary organization, and am grateful for the opportunity Mr. [Robert] Kraft, Coach Belichick, Nick Caserio and the entire team have given me. I intend to diligently work with the same passion and dedication that I have displayed since coming into the NFL to uphold the great traditions and qualities that are embodied by the Patriots."

This is potentially a huge signing for the New England Patriots and he steps into a situation where Darrelle Revis will be the cornerback on the other side of the field with him. He goes from being in the shadow of Richard Sherman to playing with another of the great one-on-one defensive backs in the league. This could immediately lead to many NFL analysts stating that the Patriots have one of the better defenses in the NFL again.
