Operation Deion – Failed

Uh oh.This could get messy boys and girls. If you have been living under a rock these last couple of hours, you missed a lot.The Patriots as you know gave disgruntled WR Deion Branch one week to seek a trade, that deadline came today at 4:00 pm and then the confusion began. There were reports that the New York Jets made Branch an offer that looked like this; 6 year, 36 million. Also coming out of some radio talk shows said that the Seahawks made a similar offer, NBC sports tends to disagree saying that the Seahawks made no such offer.

“Although the Seattle Seahawks talked numbers with Chayut, the New York Jets wound up being the only team to talk to New England about what its contract demands would be”

Now the panic of the Patriots shows, they didn’t know what to do, they didn’t anticipate any team to give Branch the money he wanted (that’s why they let him seek a trade), they then come out and said that they wanted two first round picks. Well that’s not happening. Now the Patriots are stuck with a WR who knows exactly what he’s worth on the free agent market, so he won’t be playing anytime soon, and now were stuck with a horrible WR corp. How do you guys like Reche Caldwell and Troy Brown as your starting WR’s? Chad Jackson anyone?

    Things aren’t so bad, we have ample tight ends, and an offense that doesn’t rely on big-play passes. All these guys have to do is hang on to the ball and grab 6-7 yards a catch, if they break one, great, if not we eat up the clock. I hope Branch doesn’t ever put on a Pats uniform. Screw him, he has a contract, I love how these guys think they can start changing the rules. Just once I’d like to see a big time WR take a cut in pay for having a bad year…

    He’s in for a rude awakening, he’s not a superstar wide receiver, he’s had a great surrounding cast.

    I’m not surprised the Jets made an offer, I don’t think they have a clue.
