It's pretty clear that Deion Branch was used by this slimeball Chayut. By Chayut's actions, not counteroffering Belichick's offer for Deion, it was clear Chayut wanted a publicized fight vs. Bill Belichick to get his name on the front page of the NFL agent listings. If Chayut wins, and by all accounts, he will by getting Deion traded and a new contract, he figures he'll attract other top flight talent who will see him as the guy who beat Belichick. It will be interesting to see if any Patriots now fire their agents in favor of this guy, a clear signal that they are upset with this Branch fiasco. If Branch really wanted to come back, he's the big loser here at the expense of this agent. I remember when Curtis Martin's agent wanted him to sit out when he was still a Patriot, he fired his agent immediately and ended up leaving for NY anyhow.
