According to gossip website TMZ, former Calgary Stampeder Brandon Browner has pled no contest to attempted murder and has been sentenced to eight years in prison. Four years later, he's been sentenced to eight years in prison. The 34-year-old was arrested back in July after he was accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's apartment and assaulting her. According to a release from the La Verne Police Department, he threatened the victim and took a Rolex watch worth approximately $20,000. The former Super Bowl champion has also been arrested for child endangerment as well as possession of cocaine in the past two years.

Back in July, Browner was arrested following a police chase in Azusa, California and faced a long list of charges that included kidnapping, burglary, false imprisonment, and violation of a restraining order.

According to TMZ, the other charges Browner was facing - which included robbery, burglary and false imprisonment - were dropped because of his plea. He was a member of the "Legion of Boom", one of the NFL's best secondaries, along with Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas.
