Deion Branch WILL be a Patriot next season

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.

With all these rumors swirling around Branch going back to the Pats, Branch responded that he would “love to be back with New England”. The Boston Herald has the haps on what Branch said:

“(Going back to the Patriots) would be interesting to see. You know what, I talk to guys all the time. I never wanted to leave, nor did coach Belichick and his staff and the organization want me to leave, either,” Branch said last night. “We just couldn’t get the contractual part down. We just couldn’t come to an agreement. And that stuff happens.

“I still love coach Belichick, and if the opportunity presents itself to come back, I would love to be there.”

“I still talk to Tom to this day and the crazy part is, you never lose that relationship with guys, especially when you do something special, which is what we did in my first four years in New England. I still talk with half of the team. To this day, I still talk with half of the guys that were on the team with me. It’s a special bond. For us to reunite, I don’t know. I would probably be crying at the press conference, if it happens.”

This reminds me of Andy and Erin on the Office. Both sides like each other. Both sides want to date. But someone needs to step it up and make it happen.

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.
