The Seattle Seahawks appear to be done with cornerback Brandon Browner, and his four-game suspension to start the 2014 season looked like it might kill interest in him on the open market.
But now that he’s officially been reinstated by the NFL, Browner is on a tour to find a new team and the latest stop will be with the Washington Redskins. According to Mike Florio from Pro Football Talk, Browner will be in Washington to meet with Jay Gruden and the Redskins.
CB Brandon Browner will visit the Redskins tonight, per league source.

There has already been interest in Browner from the New York Jets, and while he’s in Maryland he may end up dropping by the Ravens to see what’s up. It’s clear that the four game suspension for Browner — which won’t cost the team who signs him anything — isn’t scaring off suitors.
Cornerbacks in general aren’t flying off the shelf, with Nolan Carroll the only original free agent cornerback to have found a home, with Darrele Revis signing in New England after being released 24 hours into free agency.
Browner isn’t young, he’s had issues and he may ask for a pretty penny thanks to his Seattle connection, but there is interest in him and it appears he will be playing football somewhere in 2014.
