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?
