  • Former Patriots CB Brandon Browner sentenced to 8 years in prison (Report)

Former Seattle Seahawk cornerback Brandon Browner was sentenced to eight years in California state prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to an attempted murder charge, according to a report from TMZ. Her two children were present. The 34-year-old was arrested back in July after he was accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's apartment and assaulting her.

Browner's ordeal made headlines this past summer after word spread of him breaking into his ex-girlfriend's home where he chased her and attempted to smother her in a carpet. He's been in custody since the arrest back in July. After allegedly threatening to kill the victim inside her residence, Browner reportedly stole a $20,000 Rolex and fled the scene before police arrived, but was ultimately detained and has remained in jail since July.

Prosecutors alleged Browner used "force and violence" against Foster and inflicted "unjustifiable physical pain and mental suffering" against a two-year-old child. Four years later, he's been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Browner was arrested within hours of the incident in La Verne, which is about 30 miles east of Los Angeles.

Browner played just five seasons in the National Football League, but managed to assemble an impressive resume: two Super Bowl championships, one Pro-Bowl appearance and 12 interceptions. He won a Super Bowl ring with the New England Patriots in 2014 against his former team, and spent the following year with the Saints.
