First of all, I don't know if they would even want to, because they might not think he is worth it or after all the crap he has pulled they just don't want him on their team. If this were true I think they probably would have traded him so they can put the thing to rest and get something in return. I'm not a captologist, but for anyone who is, can the Pats afford to match the offer made to Branch by the Jets? According to PFT it is 36 million for six years. The guaranteed money and years of the deal is unknown so it's a little hard to tell, but what do people think? Could the Pat's afford it?
