Cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner were teammates for the Seattle Seahawks until Browner left to join the New England Patriots. After Sunday's thrilling Super Bowl, Getty Images photographer Andy Lyons got what seemed to be a "you mad, bro" moment when Sherman and Browner went face to face after the Patriots win.
I thought it was pretty homoerotic, though a lot of people thought the two were jawing at each other. The latter is not true, Browner told MMQB: “I just said, ‘I love you, boy,’” Browner said. “That’s my brother. I really got a lot of love for that dude. God bless his heart, he’s got a baby on the way and I hope he’s healthy. We’re really brothers.’’
Browner later tweeted that bumping heads his way of showing respect, though he normally wears a helmet. Doing it without a helmet looks way better.
