While nothing has been writen in stone and Branch still remains on USC Seahawks, by the start of next season you can count on Deion Branch catching balls from Tom Brady.
Deion has been a bust in Seattle since leaving New England a few years ago. Injuries have slowed him through out his career with the Hawks and Seattle is looking to let him go.
Rather than releasing him outright, Seattle is looking to get some value from him and they know they can get that value from the Patriots or Patriots West (Chiefs). It is rumored that the Seahawks would be looking for a 4th or 5th round pick for the Veteran Wide Out. If no trade comes on the board look for Seattle to cut their losses and release Branch. However I don’t think it’ll get that far. The Patriots should step up and offer a 4th or 5th round pick.
Hopefully the Pats swoop in and give the Seahawks the offer they are looking for, before any other team has a chance to grab Branch. He would be a huge addition to the offense. The Pats need a third wide receiver badly. Branch knows the offense, Branch and Brady once dated, Branch and Brady have a connection. A threesome of Moss, with Branch and Welker underneath would be dangerous.
