Last night was pretty crazy for the Patriots and Brandon Browner.

NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport initially reported that the two sides had come to a two year agreement, but this was later refuted by the Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter (talk about a battle of giants).

But it seems like the general thought around the NFL is a deal will get done, if it hasn’t been completed already. There is mutual agreement between the Pats and Browner, and hopefully they will be able to make it happen.

Adding Browner would be huge for New England, as it not only would bring their secondary to an elite level, but possibly their entire defense. Having Darrelle Revis on one side, Browner on the other, and a combination of Alfonzo Dennard, Logan Ryan, and Kyle Arrington in between is just downright scary. Many have pointed out that Browner may end up playing more of a linebacker-safety hybrid in the Pats defense, which is fine with me. He will be there to impose his physical will on the opposition, and if a deal is completed, this group in Foxboro will have the talent to rival Seattle’s defensive backfield.

Other than a deep vertical threat, the only thing that has been missing from New England over the last couple of seasons, has been an elite secondary.

After this offseason, they may have found one.

    I like the idea that the Pats are trying to put together an elite defensive backfield….they should draft/FA depth players on the D-line to complete a shutdown defense….defense wins championships.

      And now with Browner signed…watch out.
