Brandon Browner sentenced to 8 years in prison for attempted murder

Browner, 34, was charged in July for an incident in La Verne, California.

He was arrested in July after breaking into his ex-girlfriend's apartment, chasing and dragging the woman and then trying to smother her in a carpet, investigators said.

On Tuesday he was sentenced to eight years in prison for those charges, according to TMZ Sports.

According to reports, Browner was sentenced to 8 years behind bars after being found guilty for attempted murder after pleading no contest.

Browner was immediately remanded into custody following his plea. The La Verne Police Department news release details charges that include robbery, burglary and false imprisonment felonies as well as two misdemeanor counts of child endangerment.

According to reports, officers responded to a call at 10:07 a.m. on July 8 related to a man who broke into a home through a locked window.

Brandon Browner won a Super Bowl with the Patriots four years ago. The former New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints star also stole the woman's Rolex watch before fleeing the scene.

The 33-year-old spent three seasons with the Seahawks during the prime days of the Legion of Boom, but his career fell off course after his departure from the team in 2014.

Browner, a two-time Super Bowl champion, played in the National Football League for 11 seasons, most notably with the Seahawks and Patriots, with whom he won one Superbowl each.
