Brake Button Gradual Braking

I'm running a direct drive brushed DC setup. ADC1 is throttle with center brake and a button reverse. This is the only way I could get reverse to work properly, so I wired the brake to switch the high side of the ADC1 pot to ground (thus interrupting the throttle signal and achieving braking). The trouble is, as soon as you hit the brake, the wheels lock up. Is there a way to ramp braking on to save the gearbox from destruction? Ideally, I'd like ADC2 to control braking, but this does not seem to be possible.

Any ideas?
