- Mike Garafolo reports that Branch will receive a two-year contract worth a max of $10M and $5M fully guaranteed.
- Paylor adds that Branch potentially has “multiple” visits scheduled.
Last we heard, Herbie Teope of ChiefsDigest.com wrote two weeks ago that the Chiefs expressed interest in re-signing Branch, but it unclear if any progress has been made towards a deal.
Branch, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Raiders back in 2008. He spent five years in Oakland before signing on with the Chiefs as an unrestricted free agent last year.
In 2015, Branch appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs and recorded 43 tackles, one sack, an interception returned for a touchdown, a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown and four pass defenses.
We have him featured in our Top 100 – 2016 Free Agents list.
