A former National Football League player who admitted to trying to kill his ex-girlfriend in front of her two children was sentenced to eight years in prison on Tuesday.

In June, he pleaded no contest in Los Angeles County Superior Court to misdemeanor charges of battery and cruelty to a child by inflicting injury.

The judge ordered Browner to stay away from the victim and her two children for 10 years.

According to reports, Ex-NFL player Brandon Browner was arrested this past Sunday (July 8) for a variety of charges that include burglary, false imprisonment, kidnapping, and more. He initially was facing life in prison. Browner was immediately remanded into custody during the hearing and is back behind bars, but he did receive credit for 300 days for the time he's spent behind bars since he was taken into police custody after his arrest in July.

He has previously been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and the woman had a restraining order against him, authorities said at the time of his arrest. After allegedly threatening to kill the victim inside her residence, Browner reportedly stole a $20,000 Rolex and fled the scene before police arrived, but was ultimately detained and has remained in jail since July. The following year he won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots against his former team.

Brandon Browner won a Super Bowl with the Patriots four years ago.
