Barack Obama added a presidential-sized chip to Brandon Browner’s shoulder.
Browner was snubbed by Obama when the newly signed New England Patriots cornerback was at the White House, celebrating the Seattle Seahawks’ Super Bowl XLVIII victory. Browner played on the 2013 Seahawks but missed the Super Bowl after being suspended for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
Obama ran through Seattle’s “Legion of Boom” secondary, of which Browner was an original member with Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, but the president failed to mention the current Patriots defensive back.
Browner vowed to return to the White House when calling out the president’s slight on Twitter.

Browner retweeted a fan who noticed that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll gave his former player a glance after the snub.
