Former NFL defensive back Brandon Browner was in court on Monday facing life in prison.  The charges stem from an incident involving an ex-girlfriend.

His life after the NFL isn’t off to a great start, via Draft Diamonds:

Brandon Browner the former Seahawks defensive back was in a different uniform today. He showed up in an LA court room wearing a orange jumpsuit. He is facing up to LIFE in prison for attempted murder.

Browner a 6’4″, 220 pound Super Bowl champ walked into the courtroom in handcuffs, and didn’t say much during the hearing. He did plead not guilty to the attempted murder charge. 

This is all around sad.  The fall from the top of his sport to an orange jumpsuit is staggering.  Unfortunately it isn’t the first time an NFL player has ended up here and it likely won’t be the last.
