A potentially busy Thursday will continue late into the evening as the Washington Redskins have planned yet another visit, this time with former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner. Browner is a massive player standing at 6”4 and weighing in 221 pounds. The former pro-bowler has outstanding hands and has subsequently picked off 11 passes for the Seahawks in the past three seasons.

The 29-year old has played 36 games in Seattle, but a recent bout with the NFL’s substance abuse policy had him miss five games in 2013 as well as the first four played in 2014. Browner is one of the top cornerbacks left on the market and would be a prime fit opposite of the smaller, quicker DeAngelo Hall. The Oregon State University product would be a perfect matchup for some of the bigger wide receivers in the NFC East primarily Dez Bryant.
At this point in free agency, the Washington Redskins must make a splash within their very mediocre secondary and signing Browner would be the first step in revamping the unit. If the Redskins choose to go Browner’s way, they must employ some incentives to prevent any future suspensions that would jeopardize keeping Browner on the field.
