Former Calgary Stampeder and NFL star Brandon Browner has been sentenced to eight years in prison for attempted murder.
Browner was arrested on June 8th for breaking and entering the home of his former girlfriend. Browner left the house with a stolen Rolex. Two days later Browner was arrested on two counts of attempted murder and three other felonies. He was sentenced Tuesday night. The attempted murder charge was not Browner’s first run in with the law, as he was arrested on drug charges in 2017.
Browner was a three-time CFL all-star with the Stampeders from 2008-2010 before leaving for the NFL. Browner was notably a Pro-Bowler in 2011 and helped establish the Seattle Seahawks lethal secondary called the “Legion of Boom”, leading to a Super Bowl XLVIII title.
