A day after pulling off a deal to bring Revis Island to New England, the Patriots continued to add to their defense by signing former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner. In his three-year career Browner has been one of the top cornerbacks in the league, with 10 interceptions over that span. His addition, combined with the arrival of Darrelle Revis, means that the Patriots are serious about shoring up their defense and making a title run on a rapidly closing window. While contract details are still emerging, the deal is reportedly for three years and a maximum of $17 million. Continue reading Patriots Sign CB Browner to Play Opposite Revis »

While everyone is focusing on the big wave free agency splash made by the Denver Broncos, the New England Patriots are quietly trying to make waves of their own. Sure, signing Darrelle Revis was about as big a splash as it gets but the team is also meeting with cornerback Brandon Browner.

Who is Brandon Browner?

Browner was an undrafted free agent in 2005 who was signed by the Broncos and then placed on season ending injured reserve when he broke his arm. He was waived by the team and moved on to a successful career in Canadian Football League with the Calgary Stampeders. Continue reading Patriots Interested in Brandon Browner? »

The Patriots were very quiet during the first few hours of free agency, making headlines more for losing cornerback Aqib Talib to Denver than for any moves they made themselves. On Wednesday they made their first official transaction, re-signing free agent tight end Michael Hoomanawanui. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but an earlier report from Ian Rapoport of NFL.com had it at two years.

The rumors have been swirling for a while now: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting rid of cornerback Darrelle Revis, and the New England Patriots are interested in taking him off their hands.

I’ve tried laughing it off as another of those ridiculous offseason “stories” that have no real journalistic basis. I didn’t want to write about it for fear of coming off as just another fill-in-the-blanks Bleacher Report post: “Should the (Insert team name here) Trade for/Sign (Insert star player name here)?”

But I can’t help myself anymore, especially now that Aqib Talib left a huge hole in the Patriots secondary by signing with the Denver Broncos. By 4:00 PM on Wednesday, Revis will either be traded or released, and all I can think about is twitching my nose and making him appear at a press conference in Foxboro wearing a Patriots uniform.
