The Saints have signed Browner to a three-year deal, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The 6-4 Browner, who recorded 25 tackles and a pick in nine games with the Patriots this past season, provides the Saints' secondary with valuable size, physicality and experience, while helping solidify the team's cornerback unit. Meanwhile, after losing both Browner and Darrelle Revis in free agency, the Patriots' 2015 defense will feature a pair of new starting cornerbacks.

The Patriots have declined to exercise their contract option on Browner, WEEI.com reports.

The 30-year-old Browner, thus joins fellow starting cornerback Darrelle Revis in free agency, though it's still possible that one or both of the two could end up re-signing with the Patriots. In Browner's case, such an outcome would presumably require him to sign a team-friendly deal.

Browner (knee) left during the third quarter of Saturday's game against Baltimore and is questionable to return.

Joe Flacco saw very little resistance from the New England secondary as the third quarter came to a close Saturday, already accumulating four passing touchdowns, so Browner's absence presumably can't make things much worse than they were prior to that point.
