A list of the most penalized players in the NFL; Brandon Browner leads the league

Brandon Browner wants to return to Seattle after his tenure in New Orleans

Brandon Browner is a penalty machine for the Saints

I thought it would be fun to find out which player in the NFL is costing his team the most.  I would have thought that Jerry Hughes the Bills defensive end would be the most penalized, but I was super wrong. Brandon Browner of the Saints who is being paid a ton of money is the guy that leads all players. Browner has committed 14 penalties resulting in 17.88 yards a game and is responsible for 20.90 percent of his teams penalties. That is insane….

List is put together by our friends at NFLPenalties.com
