Colts Sign Sign Former Patriots WR Deion Branch, 5 Days Before Facing New England

The Indianapolis Colts are playing a bit of mind games with the New England Patriots this week. They have signed former Patriots WR Deion Branch on Monday onto their roster.

Branch is very familiar of the Patriots and how they operate in that locker room. I am sure that the Colts coaching staff will be picking his brain a bit to get any insight that they can from him. Branch had spent two stints with the Patriots and has won a couple of Super Bowls with them.

I am not sure if Branch can even run right now. He has spent the whole season in the unemployment line and now he has been signed to the Colts, 5 days before they face the Patriots.


They might as well sign Randy Moss and Chad Johnson right now also. Just to show that they are messing with the Patriots. Branch will likely sit the sideline for hte game, but I love the head games that they are playing.

    …..probably getting all the information Branch knows about the passing plays and what Brady looks for while reading a defense. Only reason to sign an old slow receiver….who will be watching from the sidelines.

    Irsay just paid $23,000 to have Branch play one game and look at all the ruckus it has caused……brilliant!
