FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Free-agent cornerback Brandon Browner will wear No. 39 with the New England Patriots, which is the same number he donned as a member of the Seattle Seahawks.
The number was last worn by practice squad player Sam McGuffie.
Browner joins cornerback Darrelle Revis (24) and receiver Brandon LaFell (19) as new Patriots getting settled with the team as it started its voluntary offseason program Monday.
