New England Patriots new recruit Brandon Browner will play at cornerback for the AFC East side and not the position of safety, which was a rumored potential move for the former Seahawks man.
It has been a rollercoaster few years in Seattle for the powerful corner, with drugs suspensions aplenty during a difficult time for the 29-year-old.
The Patriots have an array of holes in the secondary that led to the rumor of a potential position change for Browner.
That idea has been quickly dispelled today when Browner met the media for the first time at a Patriots press conference.
Fansided reported, "Asked Browner about possibility of playing safety–said they haven’t talked to him about playing safety. Here to play corner."
Premier cornerback Darrelle Revis is already on board for the Pats on a one-year deal, so Browner is likely to provide a great one-two punch, covering opponents second-best targets.
The Patriots best corner a week ago will now be their third best option at the position, with Kyle Arrington likely to move into the slot receiver covering position.
