SEATTLE -- The Seattle Seahawks cut cornerback Brandon Browner during their first round of preseason cuts, the Seahawks announced Monday.
On Tuesday, NFL teams are required to trim their roster down to 75 players from 90 players. After Monday's moves, the Seahawks roster sits at 84 players. NFL teams have until 1 p.m. PT Tuesday to reduce their rosters to 75 players. This is in advance of the 53-player limit set for Saturday.
Browner, of the "Legion of Boom," was a member of the 2013 Super Bowl Champion Seahawks, but was suspended mid-season for violating the NFL's performance advancing drug rules. Following the season, he was traded to the New England Patriots where he won another Super Bowl.
Browner signed a 1-year, $1.75 million deal with the Seahawks earlier this year.
In other roster moves Monday, the Seahawks waived fullback Kyle Coleman, receiver Montario Hunter, defensive end DeAngelo Tyson, and waived/injured receiver Deshon Foxx.
Defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, a six-year pro, was placed on injured reserve. He entered training camp with a calf injury.
NBC's Pro Football Talk said the Seahawks are trying to trade center Patrick Lewis, who was the team's starting center in last season's final 10 games. Veteran lineman Justin Britt is currently listed as the team's No. 1 center.
And NFL agent Brett Tessler tweeted late Monday about this possible release. It has not been confirmed by the Seahawks yet.
Sokoli, drafted by the Seahawks in the 6th round out of Buffalo in 2015, played on the defensive line in college, but the Seahawks tried to convert him to the offensive line.
And ESPN tweeted late Monday night that the Seahawks have released rookie running back Zac Brooks.
