    It is being reported that the Jets have reached agreement on a long term contract with Branch.
    There has been no agreement on compensation for the Pats however.

    The Patriots will probably mirror the contract agreed and keep Branch on board.

    It is being speculated it is a 6 year, $36 million dollar deal. Don't know about structure or guaranteed money. All that said....Dion Branch and $6 million a year is kinda hard to reconcile. Nice receiver.....not that nice. Desperation move??

    No Depack.

    This post is to cover the fact that TT is too cheap to make ANY moves.

    "Hard to reconcile"is code for "too expensive".

    No...it simply means that Branch is not worth that kind of money. You know, TomAllen, when you "reconcile " yourself to that fact that others may harbor a different opinion than yours, the world gets a whole lot better.

    The Patriots have officially rejected all trade offers, and Branch will remain under contract with the Pats.
