Defensive back Brandon Browner had signed with the Patriots tonight. Or, he hasn't. It depends on who you listen to. But the best part's that Peter Schaffer, Browner's agent, is dealing with the conflicting reports from his adult hockey league game in Denver.
Let's figure out how this happened. First, Ian Rapoport reported Browner had signed a two-year deal.
Former teammate Richard Sherman gave his congratulations to Browner. So nice of him!
About 10 minutes later, Adam Schefter countered that report with a quote from Schaffer.
Rapoport stood his ground.
Schefter cuts some slack.
And while that happened, Florio got Schaffer on the phone to figure out what's happening. From PFT:
"It's 100 percent untrue [...] I've got four teams to negotiate with. I've got irresponsible journalists who don't check their facts putting this stuff out there, and my phone is blowing up when I'm trying to play hockey."
Schaffer plays in an adult hockey league in Denver.
"I've got very little patience for irresponsible journalists who put this stuff out and ruin my night," Schaffer said. "My phone is going nuts. I just wanna play hockey."
