After pleading guilty to attempted murder, former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner received a sentence of eight years in prison.
According to TMZ Sports Brandon Browner allegedly broke into the apartment of his ex-girlfriend in La Verne in California in July. He dragged her there and then covered her with his own carpet.
Browner, who was accused of burglary, robbery and false imprisonment, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder. His ex-girlfriend had two children at the time.
Browner was taken into custody in July after he was arrested. He has been credited with 300 days in jail for good behavior.
Browner, 34, spent five seasons in NFL between 2011 and 2015 with the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints.
After a stellar career in the CFL and signing with the Seahawks in 2011, Brandon Browner was selected to the Pro Bowl. He had recorded six interceptions in his first NFL season, two of which were returned for touchdowns.
In his third season, he won a Super Bowl with Seahawks and won another one with the Pats against Seahawks the following year.
Browner was criticized by the Saints in 2015. He signed with the Seahawks for 2016 but was later released.
After his playing career ended, Browner was taken into custody for cocaine possession in May 2017. Later that year, he was again arrested for allegedly making threats against a female victim.
