Ten years after Deion Branch won a Super Bowl MVP award with the Patriots, he’s going to try to keep the Patriots from this year’s Super Bowl.
Branch signed with the Colts today, five days before Indianapolis plays a divisional playoff game at New England. The Colts worked Branch out last month, and although they didn’t sign him at the time, they must have liked what they saw.
The 34-year-old Branch is one of two receivers added to the Colts’ active roster today. The other is Josh Lenz, who was previously on the team’s practice squad.
The bad news for the Colts is that they had two available spots on the active roster because they lost two players from their defense: Indianapolis placed defensive end Fili Moala and cornerback Greg Toler on injured reserve.
