When the Carolina Panthers unexpectedly rescinded Josh Norman's franchise tag in late April, the Redskins quickly swooped in and landed the dynamic, ball-hawking cornerback. But if all had gone the team's way, Norman would have been just the icing on the cake.
A few weeks prior to Norman becoming a member of the Redskins, the Seattle Seahawks signed former "Legion of Boom" member Brandon Browner to a one-year deal after a failed stint with the New Orleans Saints.
On Thursday, Browner spoke to Seattle media members, and let it slip that the Redskins had made an offer to him.

Now, it's hard to know if the Redskins would have so quick to pursue Norman if they were able to sign Browner, what with Bashaud Breeland progressing nicely at the other corner.
But it is fun to imagine the possibilities.
