Browner to urge Pats to break Sherman's arm
Tuesday January 27th, 2015

New England Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner clarified comments he made on Monday calling for his teammates to target injured members of the Seattle Seahawks, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Browner, who played the first three seasons of his career with the Seahawks, said he still views Seattle's secondary as brothers. Browner also said he texted Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who laughed off the comments.

Sherman and safety Earl Thomas were both injured during the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers, but will play in the Super Bowl with the injuries. On Monday, Browner said the Patriots should exploit their injuries.

“Those dudes are tough,” Browner said. "Watching the [NFC Championship] you see Sherman was holding that arm like he had a sling on. But at the end of the day, this is about the Super Bowl. I’m going to tell my teammates ‘Go hit that elbow. Go hit that shoulder. Most definitely. Hit it. Yeah. Try to break it if you can.’ "
