    Deion Branch Back to Pats

    Adam Schefter just reported the Seattle is taking trade offers for Deion Branch.  That would solve the 3rd receiver problem, no?  Let's keep our fingers crossed.

    Yes, that the Pats don't trade for him.

    It is one of the few moves that make sense.

    Seattle would have to eat some of that contract though.

    By the way, love your headline.  Not the slightest bit sensational or misleading, say like "Pope rapes nun". 

    "No, the Pope hasn't been charged with raping a nun, but what if he was?"

    How many catches can he make on the sideline injured?  He might play half the games for us.

    Please don't create thread titles that lead readers to believe that a move has already happened.

    They might be doing the roster moves (tully/alexander) to free up some $ to absorb some of the contract.

    Re: Deion Branch Back to Pats

    from Mike Reiss today:

    From a pure media speculation standpoint, it makes sense to think that Seahawks receiver Deion Branch is one player the Patriots would at least inquire about.

    Branch is Seattle's No. 3a/3b target, so the Seahawks -- who are struggling and might consider trading with the future in mind -- currently have depth at the position. Branch knows the Patriots' system, so that would shorten any big learning curve at a position where the Patriots haven't had a No. 3 target emerge alongside Randy Moss and Wes Welker.

    As Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio said Monday, there are a lot of moving parts involving potential trades, from compensation to the trade partner and contract considerations to the player. In the case of Branch, if the Patriots were to acquire him, they would probably want to restructure his contract and have some considerations should his previously injured knee become an issue.

    The trade deadline fuels plenty of speculation, and the possibility of a Branch-Patriots reunion is just that -- speculation.

    But for one day, it's fun to think of the possibilities and play the role of armchair general manager.

    Re: Deion Branch Back to Pats

    Why? Has he even played 5 games since he left. He did nothing in Seattle....
    Edelman is better than he is now...


    NO! PLEASE NO!

    Deion is perhaps a deal I would consider if they were not on the hook for the remainder of that stupid contract... remember they let him go rather then sign him to a simmilar contract and rightly so. I could see this move happening if Seattle takes a huge bite of that deal and doesn't get more then a 2nd round pick... I would prefer giving up a 3rd or 4th for him though.

    Edelman is a slot receiver.  NE needs another outside receiver to play opposite Moss.

    You are correct. My statement was to the slot on the receiving core. The Pats just gave Aiken an extension this morning, so I think that shows they have confidense in him being the number three. I am saying keep Edelman as the 4th receiver. DON"T bring back Dion...

    I can't understand those that would not want him. He is the the anthesis of Galloway; not a pure speed guy but has innate understanding of the system. I could see him being productive for many more years a` la Troy Brown.

    Re: Deion Branch Back to Pats

    I'm not sure I identify with those opposed to trading for Branch.  We could have been a better team with him these past several years if we had him.  I agree that between Nunn, Tate and Edelman we have three young receivers who could contribute if called upon and would be good long term investments.  Still, the future is now with this team.  They have a chance to win the SuperBowl every year that Brady is behind center.  Why not, at the very least, make an attempt to reacquire him?

    My only hesitation is that everyone has been saying "he knows the system".  That's not entirely true.  He and Brady had great chemestry and I'm certain he would fit into the offense very easily if he were to return.  However, there have been a lot of changes to this team and the play calling since he left.  He'd have to pick up a lot of new plays but I don't think that's a reason to throw the idea out.

    Wonderful thought but Deion is a lot closer to Nomar in terms of  durability than he ever will be to Troy Brown....

    This just in: Troy Brown to Patriots


    Lest we all forget, Branch could not have burned his bridge any more thoroughly on his way out of town when he still had one year on his contract, short of adding a viscious beating on the mascot on his way out of the facilities.  It was probably amongst the messiest exits of any former Pats player, right up there with Ty Law and Terry Glenn.  BB will never, never, never bring back Branch...or Law...or Milloy.  It all needs a rest.

    This just in: Terry Glenn to Patriots.

    See how silly it looks.

    And I have to say, I expect better of Mike Reiss.  The ESPN culture of sensationalism apparently taints even the best.
