Seahawks Cut Veteran CB Brandon Browner

The Seahawks confirmed Monday that they have cut veteran cornerback Brandon Browner as the team begins the process of paring the roster from 90 to 75 by Tuesday at 1 p.m. Seattle time, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Browner was re-signed to much fanfare in April after having been released by the New Orleans Saints, with Seattle bringing him back with the idea that he could make the switch to a hybrid role as a safety/nickel back.

But Browner did not move past the third team at safety as Kelcie McCray earned the job as the backup at both the free and strong safety positions while undrafted rookie free agent Tyvis Powell also made a move up the depth chart as a safety and special teamer. Browner had also appeared to fall behind Steven Terrell on the depth chart at safety.

While the Seahawks had not used Browner as anything but a backup safety in the preseason, coach Pete Carroll had hinted last week that the team might just be keeping that part of his role under wraps.

“I think we’re pretty clear on his strengths,” Carroll said last week. “He’s shown enough stuff where we know where he’s best at and we feel pretty comfortable with that.”
