Brandon Browner rejoining Seattle Seahawks

Brandon Browner is reuniting with the "Legion of Boom."

The free-agent cornerback will re-sign with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday on a one-year deal, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source involved in the deal.

Browner earned a Pro Bowl nod as a big-play machine in his first season with the Seahawks back in 2011. He was a key contributor, starting 36 games over three years for a historically great Seattle pass defense before signing with the Patriots in 2014.

Although Browner's size and physicality come in handy versus bigger receivers and tight ends, he has lost a step the past two years, leading to a flurry of pass interference violations. He was released by the Saints in February after committing the most penalties in a single season since 2001.

Browner, 31, recently revealed that he played the entire 2015 season with a torn MCL suffered in the first preseason game.

"I never wanted to make an excuse, so I played thru it," Browner wrote on Instagram. "... Last year was the most frustrating year for me, those who know me knew I was affected by it."

Browner will have to bounce back in offseason practices and training camp to earn playing time after the Seahawks re-signed Jeremy Lane to go with All-Pro Richard Sherman and DeShawn Shead.

UPDATE: The Seahawks announced Monday they have signed Browner.
