Ex-Patriot Brandon Browner Reportedly Gets Eight Years In Attempted Murder Case

Children were present during the attack, so charges for willful child endangerment were added on top of the attempted murder. He was was also accused of stealing the woman's Rolex watch.

According to TMZ, the other charges Browner was facing - which included robbery, burglary and false imprisonment - were dropped because of his plea.

After fleeing the scene, he was arrested and charged.

Browner has been behind bars since the incident occurred in July as he awaited sentencing.

Browner was an original member of the Seahawks' Legion of Boom secondary, spending three seasons with the Seahawks from 2011-13.
