New England Patriots chasing 'Legion of Boom' star

Bill Belichick and his New England Patriots side were taken apart by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship game in January. 

So what does the veteran head coach do? Bring in some incredible defensive players of course.

Yesterday the Pats confirmed the signing of star cornerback Darrelle Revis on a one-year $12 million deal, but that doesn't seem to be the end of the 61-year olds defensive revolution.

According to reports, the Patriots are bringing in former Seattle Seahawks and Legion of Boom destroyer Brandon Browner in for a visit.

Browner was recently reinstated to the league from an indefinite suspension handed down in December for a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy.

He will have to sit out the opening four games of the season, but with his skill, power and sheer physical magnificence Browner - the tallest corner in NFL history - would be a great fit for any team in the league.

Browner was picked up by Seattle as a free agent in 2011 after playing several seasons in the CFL where he won the Grey Cup once and was a three-time All-Star with the Calgary Flames.

In his first season as a Seahawk, Browner was named to the Pro-Bowl and set a Seattle franchise record for most interception return yards in a season - 220 yards off six picks.

If Browner and the Patriots can agree a deal then that means the Massachusetts side will have brought in two All-Pro cornerbacks already, with the prospect of more reinforcements coming in the draft in May.
