Re: Branch cut This is fools gold, it is not like the Patriots at super loaded at every position. I can't ever recall a player been taken from the Patriots practice squad, if it did happen I would be curious to see what impact the player had. It feels like the same old artificial delusion junk that gets floated about the Patriots talent level, they have good talent but are far from stocked. Remember the Brian Hoyer for a 2nd rounder non-sense. Plain and simple, Branch is a marginal player, with a bad hammy he is nothing.
