Patriots Re-Sign WR Deion Branch

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the New England Patriots have re-signed WR Deion Branch to a one-year contract.

Branch, 32, has been a consistent weapon for Tom Brady and the Patriots over the years but the team has already signed a number of free agent wide receivers thus far. Brandon LloydDonte Stallworth and Anthony Gonzalez have all been added to the teams roster in the last week so Branch may have to prove his worth before the team commits to him being on their roster for the 2012 season.

He did manage to catch 51 passes for 702 yards and scored five touchdowns last year so he’s still capable of being a decent option at times.
