No real shocker today that Branch didn’t show up for the Patriots opening day of their annual minicamp that will last till Thursday. I had a feeling today that Belichick was highly upset about the hole situation with Branch with his only words being "I'm not going to talk about anybody who's not here".
With losing our No. 2 wide receiver David Givens who signed as a free agent with Titans that puts us in a shortage of WR with Troy Brown and Reche Caldwell as our No. 1 and No. 2 guys. All we can do now is that Branch and the Patriots organization come to agreement soon.
