According to Tom Curran of CSNNE.com, the New England Patriots have released veteran wide receiver Deion Branch.
The Patriots have released Deion Branch and Malcolm Williams. Greg Salas and Aqib Talib are added to the 53. #PatriotsTalk

Branch had an average season in 2011 and hasn’t done much this year. It didn’t make sense for the Patriots to keep him around.
