Yesterday the Patriots allowed corner back Brandon Browner to explore his options and gauge his value around the NFL.
Today, it seems like he knows what he is worth and isn't willing to take a pay cut to stay with the team.
Per source, Brandon Browner won't take a paycut to stay in New England. So they either exercise his option as it stands, or cut him by 4 ET.

Browner is owed $5.5 million this year. But the way his contract is structured, if he is cut or traded he won't count as any dead money towards the cap. Therefore, creating more cap space for the team to re-sign Revis or other players.
But would the team be wise to let him leave? Based on what the middle of the road corner back market has been set at so far in free agency, they won't be able to sign someone else for cheaper. Not to mention once he came back from his four game suspension last year is when the defense really took off.
What ever the decision is, it has to be made by today's 4pm deadline.
Me? well i thought you'd never ask. well i'm around 25 years old, give or take, i mean the only way to tell for sure is to cut me open and count my rings but for now i'm content to say i'm 25. i'm freakin funny, and if you disagree with me i will stab you in the jaw. i love to just chill with my friends, they are awesome, they laugh at my jokes, sure, it took some jaw stabbing but hey its not always easy. i haven't quite mastered the whole think before you speak program, apparently, if you start a sentence with "now don't take this the wrong way" people still take it the wrong way. i know, i know, it doesn't make any sense to me either, but it happens. twice while i was fishing, i've seen beavers with paws the size of frying pans that could rip a mans face right off! oh and i hate bears, its just terrible what happened to those two hikers from the czech republic. terrible. i really like to go fourwheeling, i like to work on cars but i'm way to lazy to actually do it. i cant wait to go snowboarding this winter, i'm pretty good, steve once said i looked like a train wreck, he's borderline pro, so that really made my day. oh and once i had a dream.
