Branch, 28, just recently fired his agency CAA and hired Blake Baratz as his agent, so it appears to be paying off, considering that there was almost no interest before he switched representation.
He joins a strong defensive line that includes Kyle Williams and Marcel Dareus, so it seems likely that he’ll be asked to take on situational role. Still, this could be a good value signing by the Bills.
We had him listed as the No. 18 player in our recently updated Top 50 Free Agents list.
La Canfora adds that Buffalo is “pretty interested in getting something done.”
ESPN’s John Clayton previously tossed out the Packers as a speculative option, but that idea seems doubtful given their approach towards free agency.
