In an interview with ESPN, Browner said injuring the two key Seahawks should be part of the Patriots’ strategy for winning the game.
“Those dudes are tough, like watching the game you see Sherman was holding that arm like he had a sling on it,” Browner said in an interview with ESPN’s Josina Anderson. “But at the end of the day this is about the Super Bowl. I’m going to tell my teammates to go hit that elbow, go hit that shoulder. Try to break it if you can, you know?”
He added: “You’re going to be my best friend after the game, but at the end of the day I know you want the Super Bowl just as bad as me.”
Browner, 30, was on the Seahawks team that made it to the Super Bowl last year, but missed the big game himself because he had been suspended in November of 2013 for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. He ended up watching the Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos last year with his family.
Browner was reinstated in March 2014 and signed with New England.
“It’s crazy, man,” Browner said, said in an interview with the Boston Herald. “I really had that vision when I signed here. Hopefully, we’d meet up with my old boys and it happened to work out that way.”
