He was replaced during the team's first season in the league, 1926, by Archie Golembeski just before the season began.

Prior to his professional career, Braney played at the college level while attending Syracuse and Fordham University. In 1915 he was a letter winner for the Orange, while in 1916 he earned a letter playing for the Rams.
