Branch is back

The rumors are indeed true: Deion Branch is back in New England.

We have confirmed the trade, which was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Schefter reported that the Patriots sent Seattle a fourth-round pick in return.

It appeared something was imminent after Branch was given a “personal day” and excused from practice by coach Pete Carroll.
