Branch is usually listed as one of the keys to our future success, and a must sign at almost any cost. I strongly disagree. This team will NOT make Branch one of the top paid wide receivers in the game. Look at what Randel-El got in a contract. Look at TO. Certainly, Branch will command more (perhaps not as much as he thinks, but more). Will the situation be different in free agency next year. The reality is that bb has a cap approach that works. This includes a certain amount for various positions. Yes, there are exceptions for superstars like Brady and Seymour, as there should be. Branch is NOT a superstar. The team needs to build this year and next at wide receiver, and at outside linebacker. I have every confidence that we will.
