Browner appeared in court where he pleaded no contest to one count of attempted murder and two counts of willful child endangerment and was sentenced to eight years behind bars.

According to reports, Ex-NFL player Brandon Browner was arrested this past Sunday (July 8) for a variety of charges that include burglary, false imprisonment, kidnapping, and more. He has been given credit for 300 days served for good behavior in the time that he's already spent behind bars since his initial arrest in July, TMZ reports. Browner had previously been arrested in May for domestic violence.

Police said Browner broke into his ex-girlfriend's house and threatened to kill her, as well as stole a watch worth over $20,000. The Los Angeles Times reported in July that Browner pleaded no contest in June to misdemeanor charges of battery and cruelty to a child by inflicting injury.

Those charges stemmed from an incident in Pomona, California, on May 6 involving Browner and Marin Foster, the mother of two of his children. He would later be charged with four felonies, including attempted murder.

The former National Football League player was a two-time Super Bowl champion and original member of the Legion of Boom with the Seahawks. He then signed with the Patriots as a free agent.

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.
