RENTON, Wash. (AP) — A year after making the transition from Canadian Football League player to Pro Bowl cornerback, Brandon Browner is continuing to prove his value to the Seattle Seahawks.
Browner came up with two key plays to help the Seahawks earn their first road win of the season, a 16-12 victory over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday, including a strip and fumble recovery that helped shift the momentum back in Seattle's favor. He later teamed with Marcus Trufant to stop the Panthers' Louis Murphy at the 1 on a critical third and goal in the fourth quarter.
Browner joined the Seahawks last year after spending four years with the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL. He fit in perfectly with Seattle's physical pressing defense.
