Brandon Browner to sign one-year deal with Seattle, per source

Will the Legion of Boom have the same bang in Seattle? (1:29)

ESPN NFL Insider Phil Savage examines what role CB Brandon Browner is likely to have when he returns to Seattle for the 2016 season. (1:29)

The Seahawks' original Legion of Boom secondary is fully intact, as cornerback Brandon Browner is returning to Seattle.

Browner will sign a one-year deal with the Seahawks, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The move reunites Browner with Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.

Browner posted Sunday that the "secret's out" on Instagram.

Browner has bounced around the league since leaving the Seahawks after the 2013 season, playing for the New England Patriots in 2014 and the New Orleans Saints in 2015.

The 31-year-old Browner had 76 tackles, 10 passes defended and an interception as he struggled to fit in with the Saints last season. He was flagged for 24 penalties (21 accepted) -- the most by any player in a single season since at least 2001, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

He was often caught in mismatches against faster receivers, in part because of the Saints' injury issues at cornerback. Browner also allowed too many deep balls over his head, contributing to the problems of a Saints defense that shattered the NFL record for most touchdown passes allowed in a season (45).

Browner played much of last season with a torn MCL, which the Seahawks believe contributed to his struggles, according to the source. The team hopes a homecoming helps to turn around his career, the source said.
