He says that Deion Branch is his most important offensive player on the team and that he has been text messaging him on a regular basis, urging him to come to camp. I have said it before, but if Branch is that important to me I would be talking to him in person demanding him to be at training camp and stop being so selfish. He is griping about playing for only 1 million dollars this upcoming year? What a cry baby, some hard working Americans can even make that in a lifetime. If I were the leader of this team I would make an extra effort to talk to Deion and tell him "what you are doing is obviously more important than the team. You should honor your contract". As a QB and a leader, I would give him a ultimatum and tell him if you plan to hold out until this date, then don't bother coming back because you are not apart of the team. I know it's harsh but its the truth. Deion cares more about the money then the team. If any of us were to go into work one day and demand a new contract with a pay raise or else we wouldn't go to work, our ass would be canned! Any player that holds out is wrong and obviously his "team" is not that important to him. I think Ty Law hung out with him too many times.
