Patriots Release WR Deion Branch, Activate CB Aqib Talib
The Deion Branch era is once again over in New England.
Amid a series of roster moves, the Patriots cut ties with the veteran wide receiver and elevated Greg Salas from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Cornerback Aqib Talib was also added to the active roster, with cornerback Malcolm Williams being the casualty of that move.
Branch went down with a hamstring injury during practice this week, and with Wes Welker (ankle) and Brandon Lloyd (knee) also battling injuries, the Patriots likely felt that it needed more depth for Sunday's game against the Colts.
Branch will now be subject to waivers and teams will have until 4 p.m. Monday to claim him.
