With Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch passing his physical and reportedly set to start working with the team, it appears this will be a new start for him in New England in more ways than one.

According to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe Branch, who previously wore #83 during his last tenure here in New England (currently worn by Wes Welker), will now reportedly wear #84 this time around

Young reports that it appears Branch will take over Randy Moss' old locker next to Tom Brady, and that a #84 jersey was hanging in it along with the rest of his equipment.
