A former National Football League player for the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks was sentenced Tuesday to eight years in prison after pleading no contest to charges of attempted murder, prosecutors said.

In the past two years, he has been arrested on suspicion of domestic battery, child endangerment and possessing cocaine.

Browner was arrested within hours of the incident in La Verne, which is about 30 miles east of Los Angeles.

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


Along with breaking into the home and forcing the victim to stay, Browner allegedly dipped off from the scene before police got there with a Rolex watch worth about $20,000. He was later arrested and has been in custody since July.

Browner, who spent one season with the New England Patriots in 2014, reportedly faced a maximum life sentence in prison when he was charged in July. Alongside Darrelle Revis, Browner helped New England defeat his old team in Super Bowl XLIX.

Browner, 34, won Super Bowl XLIX with the Patriots, engaging with receiver Jermaine Kearse to help set a lane for Malcolm Butler to make the game-saving interception at the goal line. He was a member of the "Legion of Boom", one of the NFL's best secondaries, along with Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas.
