Cornerback Brandon Browner’s future in Seattle was already uncertain before he suffered a groin injury that coach Pete Carroll characterized as serious.
“Browner’s hurt. He’s going to be down for a bit,” Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Brock and Danny” on Monday. “We don’t know how extensive it is, but it could be quite a while.”
This is a contract season for Browner, and the fact that it could end early because of an injury creates even more uncertainty about whether he’ll be re-signed.
There are other factors at play, not the least of which are Browner’s age (29) and the younger alternatives Seattle has at cornerback. Walter Thurmond (26) and Byron Maxwell (25) have played well in Browner’s absence, though Thurmond is also scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after this season.
Brock Huard and Danny O’Neil discussed Browner’s injury and his future in Tuesday’s edition of “Blue 42“. They continue their conversation in the video above.
