Seahawks Make Roster Moves, Including Release Of DB Brandon Browner

The Seahawks began roster cuts ahead of Tuesday's deadline with a handful of moves, including the release of defensive back Brandon Browner.

The Seahawks made roster moves Monday ahead of Tuesday's deadline to reduce their roster to 75 players, including the release of veteran defensive back Brandon Browner. The Seahawks also waived fullback Kyle Coleman, receiver Montario Hunter, defensive end DeAngelo Tyson, and waived/injured receiver Deshon Foxx. Defensive tackle Sealver Siliga was placed on injured reserve.

Browner, 32, launched a successful NFL career with the Seahawks in 2011 when he signed with Seattle out of the Canadian Football League. Browner won a starting cornerback spot in his first season and earned Pro Bowl honors with six interceptions and 23 passes defensed. Browner remained a starter with the Seahawks through the 2013 season, helping form the original "Legion of Boom" secondary along with Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. Browner then spent 2014 with the New England Patriots and 2015 with the New Orleans Saints.

Browner re-signed with Seattle this offseason, though not to play cornerback, but rather a hybrid safety role. Browner primarily spent training camp and preseason games serving as a backup strong safety behind Kam Chancellor and Kelcie McCray on the depth chart.

Foxx, who spent part of last season on Seattle's practice squad, has been sidelined by a hamstring injury since the second week of camp. Siliga, who signed as a free agent this offseason, opened training camp on the non-football injury list with a calf injury, then aggravated the injury during pregame warmups before Seattle's preseason opener at Kansas City.

Following Monday's moves, the Seahawks roster currently sits at 84 players. NFL teams have until 1 p.m. PT Tuesday to reduce their rosters to 75 players.
