Deion Branch Trade Rumor: New England In Talks With Seattle

In a classic Bill Belicheck move earlier this week, New England flipped talented wide receiver Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings for draft picks. Perhaps looking to fill the void in production Moss leaves, the Patriots are involved in preliminary talks with the Seattle Seahawks for wide receiver Deion Branch.

According to the Seattle Times' Danny O'Neil, nothing is immanent but talks have been ongoing.

There were indications on Wednesday that a Branch-to-the-Patriots deal was in the making, but it's premature to characterize it as imminent. It's something to keep monitoring throughout the day.

The Boston Herald's Ian Rapoport followed-up by saying the talks are very preliminary and nothing is, as of now, close to a done-deal.

A trade to New England would represent a homecoming of sorts for Branch. The Seahawks traded a first-round draft pick to the Patriots for Branch during the 2006 season.

Again, nothing is happening as of now, but keep an eye on the situation as it unfolds.
