Patriots: WR Deion Branch returns to Patriots – again

Share Button

Deion Branch is back at his Patriots locker where his nameplate never was removed after the two times the team released him this season.

The wide receiver re-signed with New England after being cut and missing the past four games. He had been cut for the first time just before the season then was re-signed after two games.

Branch said Thursday he had no intention of playing for another team and wants to retire as a Patriot. But he said he knew he would be back. The Patriots signed him to add depth after wide receiver. Donte’ Stallworth suffered a high right ankle sprain in Monday night’s 42-14 win over the Houston Texans.

Stallworth was injured on his only catch of the game, a 63-yard touchdown pass.
