    Branch injured his hamstring Friday and was questionable for Sunday with the Colts. Led to his release, Salas activation.

    Wow.  Williams for Talib was predictable, but I didn't see the Salas activation coming!

    Teams will have until 4 p.m. Monday to claim Branch. After that, the Patriots will be able to re-sign him if they so desire.

    In a way sad to see Branch go, though that's more because I like the guy than because he's a great contributor now.  Very excited to see what Salas can do with a chance.

    This must mean that Salas is really picking up the offense and building a strong chemistry with Brady....I'm just kidding, it just means that Branch became eligible for his AARP benefits and couldn't double dip:(

    In a way the Pats are fortunate with Branch and Salas.  Neither are likely to be picked up by another team (both have already been released once).   So, the Pats can go with the healthiest body which is the case now IMO.

    The 2012 season = 9 catches for 80 yards over 9 games. The production isn't there anymore.

    Socking........not.  We would of been better off bringing along a rookie, that could stretch the field, then wasting a year and a half on a washed up Branch.

    Did not expect Branch to be cut this week.  I think BB has a dream of one year firing his entire roster and hiring them back.  Where's Ventrone?

    <----- I like this guy.  He's on speed dial. 

     

    Hopefully Salas can contribute.  If anything else his name is a palindrome, which is fun.

    I'm a Branch fan so I didn't like when he was released before the season and I don't like him being released now.  But I can see and understand why he has been released.  His injury, Wes has a bad ankle, Lloyd has a bad knee, that leaves Edelman as the only healthy WR so now Salas is good for depth plus the Patriots must think pretty highly of him since they like tripled his practice squad salary a while back.  I'm anxious to see him play in the Patriots system so lets get him out there.


    As for Branch, I don't see anyone picking him off the waiver wire and I do think he will be back at some point.  He had some key catches to keep drives alive during this season.  Certainly not a productive seaon by him thus far but he has cerainly helped the team.  Sunday should be interesting and then to turn around and get ready for Thanksgiving game, it's going to be tough.

    that is exaclty what i expected when i readthe headline (branch must be injured). the good thing is that salas has a good chance to develop into something of a weapon for us (not that bracnh beign injured is good.

    I think y'all are missing the main point. Releasing Branch and bringing in Salas, to me, is a sign that Wes Welkers ankle is bothering him to the point he may not dress for Sundays game.

    bringing salas iin means welker wont play. 

    i dont know if welker plays or not, but salas isnt even on the roster unless branch gets injured.

    Exactly...  Wonder what team in what situation might be taking a look at him...?  And whether he would sign with another team if they offered.

    Bottom line is our entire receiving corps is injured, so someone had to go to make room for someone who isn't injured.  Branch as much as I love the guy, was the most expendable.
