The original “Legion of Boom” may be back in 2016.
The News Tribune confirmed Sunday afternoon that the Seahawks agreed to a one-year contract to bring back veteran defensive back Brandon Browner, a member of Seattle’s Super Bowl winning team.
Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the news.
Browner tweeted Sunday a picture of himself in a Seahawks uniform along with the words, “I’ve been excited about this one, been trying to keep it to myself. Secrets out, I’m grateful and...”
The team later tweeted confirmation of the agreement.
Browner played in 36 games with Seattle from 2011-2013. He started opposite Richard Sherman at the right cornerback position and earned a trip to the Pro Bowl in 2011.
Along with safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, Browner and Sherman earned the nickname “Legion of Boom” for the Seahawks secondary prior to the team’s Super Bowl 48 victory.
Browner played for the New England Patriots against the Seahawks in Super Bowl 49. He played last season with the New Orleans Saints.
