FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch donned a large grin and laughed about exchanging notes with Chad Ochocinco if T.J. Houshmandzadeh joined the team's wide receiver corps. But getting more serious, Branch said there's nothing really to talk about yet without Houshmandzadeh on the team.
"It's hard to speak on that situation," Branch said. "He's not here."
On Sunday, the Globe reported that Houshmandzadeh would work out for the Patriots today.
