He walked off with a limp and was examined by trainers on the sideine before being wheeled away. The team has yet to release details.
Browner played in nine games for New England last season and contributed to 25 tackles. He had one interception.
"Browner's a good dude, leads by example, talks when he needs to talk," Vaccaro told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "He's real serious, kind of keeps everybody level headed and knows what we've got to work for. He's won two Super Bowls, so he knows what to do."
Sean Payton echoed those sentiments.
"He's competitive," he said. "He's driven and certainly one of the things we talked about this offseason through the draft, through the acquisition of players is the makeup and making sure that this is something we felt like was a plus and certainly with him we feel that that is a strength of his."
The Saints are Browner's fourth team in six seasons in the NFL.

Browner canceled his visit to the Redskins after choosing the Saints.
Browner has 11 interceptions over his last four seasons.
The Patriots declined Browner's option before the beginning of the league year, allowing him to reach free agency. He has racked up 11 interceptions over the last four seasons but has managed only one interception in each of the last two years.
