Brandon Browner sat out a large majority of the NFL season and wasn’t a part of the Seattle Seahawks 13-3 season that they put together and was of no help in their Super Bowl run. Still, despite being injured and suspended, the Seahawks cornerback is still going to receive a postseason paycheck and is going to be getting a Super Bowl ring for the 2013 season.
Per a league source, Browner recently received a check for $131,000. Of that amount, $44,000 relates to the NFC title game, and $97,000 arises from his role on the Super Bowl-winning team.
Florio goes on to mention that the CBA prevented Browner from being paid for the Seahawks win over the New Orleans Saints, but didn’t prohibit him from benefits beyond that game.
Luckily for Browner, the Seahawks and plenty of football left after the Divisional Round.
Browner is going to hit free agency this offseason and he’s hardly going to be coveted given the year long ban he faces for his repeated abuse of the substance policy. Still, the Seahawks cornerback is getting the same benefits that his teammates who actually played are getting, as his wallet is fatter and his Super Bowl ring is on its way.
