Well, it’s finally time to say goodbye to Branch, according to patriots.com Branch has been traded to the Seahawks. I know many are not surprised about the trade, but I know a lot of people are surprised that it happened this soon.
Wide receiver Deion Branch has been traded to the Seattle Seahawks, reportedly for a 2007 first round pick. It is believed the contract Branch will sign with the Seahawks is a 6-year deal averaging around 6.5 million per year.
The transaction ends Branch’s 2006 holdout with the New England Patriots that began during the mandatory off-season team events and continued through Sunday’s season opener against the Buffalo Bills.
Mr. Branch did not get his eight to nine million dollar a year contract, they he wanted. But this will probably be good for him as the Pats probably wouldn’t of even gave him 6.5 million next year. As for me I am happy to say goodbye to this guy who let the franchise and his fans down because of greed.
