Report: Police looking into assault allegation against Browner

Seahawks corner Brandon Browner has been named in a police report in California after an assault allegation was made against him, according to TMZ.

The Pomona, California Police Department confirmed to TMZ that officers were called to a residence on Tuesday night in response to an incident during which the former Patriots corner allegedly assaulted the father of his child's mother.

TMZ reported that Browner left the scene in a Bentley before police arrived. Police told the outlet that the situation is currently under investigation.

Browner re-signed with the Seahawks after two years away from Seattle, where he helped make up the original Legion of Boom secondary between 2011-13. In 2014, Browner helped the Patriots win Super Bowl XLIX as one of its top corners and by playing a crucial role during Malcolm Butler's game-winning interception. Browner was released by the Saints after a down season in New Orleans in 2015.

Former Lions tight end Eric Ebron is signing a two-year deal worth $15 million with the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Ebron was rumored to be a potential target for the Patriots, especially after new Pats running back Jeremy Hill tried recruiting him to the team.

The 24-year-old had 53 receptions for 574 yards and four touchdowns a season ago with Detroit.

Patriots release Shea McClellin

Shea McClellin will be blocking kicks for somebody else next season. 

The Patriots announced Monday they've released the veteran linebacker, ending his tenure with the team after two seasons.  ESPN's Field Yates broke the news.

The Pats signed McClellin to a three-year deal prior to the 2016 season, but that was the only season in which he played for the team. McClellin missed all of last season due to injury. Prior to coming to New England, McClellin played four seasons with the Bears, who chose him 19th overall in 2012. 

McClellin's biggest contribution with the Pats came when he blocked a Justin Tucker kick in Week 14 of the 2016 season against the Ravens.
