Seattle, Pats discuss Branch

Seahawks have six receivers on roster

SEATTLE – The Seahawks have a bye this weekend, with the players given four days off before returning Monday.

That doesn’t mean the team is idle, though. Not with the Seahawks being one of the most active teams in the league in terms of roster moves.

One possibility to keep an eye on is that wide receiver Deion Branch would be traded to New England, the team from which Seattle acquired him in 2006.

It’s premature to say a trade is on the table, but discussions had taken place as of Wednesday night. By Thursday, the possibility of a deal was mentioned in Seattle and in New England.

The Seahawks have six receivers on the 53-man roster after adding Brandon Stokley.
