CB Brandon Browner visiting Patriots

The Patriots are hosting free-agent cornerback Brandon Browner for a visit.

Browner, who is suspended for the first four games of the 2014 regular season after sitting out the final five games of last season for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, is 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds.

The 29-year old had a roundabout route to the NFL, originally signing with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2005 before playing multiple years in the Canadian Football League. He signed with the Seahawks in 2011 and was named to the Pro Bowl that season.

He is regarded as one of the most physical and aggressive cornerbacks in the league.

In 2013, Browner played in eight games, starting all of them and recording 19 tackles and one interception.

The Patriots have been busy on the cornerback front of late, adding Darrelle Revis on Wednesday night, according to a report by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Beyond Revis, the team's cornerback depth chart is led by Alfonzo Dennard, Logan Ryan and Kyle Arrington.

Fox 25 originally reported the visit.
