According to NFL Live (on espn), New England Patriots number one WR Deion Branch now is looking for 8 to 9 million dollars a year. If that is the case, Deion will enjoy a long vacation and will have to start looking for houses elsewhere in the United States. There is no way that the Patriots, who didn’t want to give him 6 million a year, will even consider giving him 8 million.This is the downfall in the NFL, a player who is unknown makes something of his name, like Branch in the superbowl and then they get greedy and think their worth everything.
During this holdout I lost all my respect for Branch and I want him to leave this team. And if Brady wants him so bad maybe he should split his salary with the Patriots and pay him. We all know that’s not happening. If you didn’t know a player who holds out can only do so up to week 10 of the season. Don’t ask me why.My advice to the important players, and people in this holdout;
Deion Branch – Come back down to earth.
Tom Brady – Get to know Reche Caldwell and Chad Jackson very well.
Patriots front office – Keep it up, don’t give in.
