The Indianapolis Colts signed Deion Branch, former New England Patriots receiver, days before both teams face each other in the AFC divisional round, and pay per head sportsbooks would like to see how the team will perform with the player.
Pay per head sportsbooks learned that on Monday, Indianapolis agreed to terms with Branch to boost a receiving group that’s struggling with injuries. The 34-year-old first worked out for the Colts in December.
“We have a pool of guys in case you have injuries,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “Deion was one of the guys we worked out. He’s a local guy who lives in Carmel, [Ind.], he’s in great shape, had a great workout and obviously he’s a proven guy and played at a high level for a long time in this league. With him being right here in our backyard and us having some familiarity with him from just working him out, it just made sense to bring him on board at this point.”
Pay pet head sportsbooks saw that Branch was named the MVP of Super Bowl XXXIX and played seven seasons with the New England Patriots.
The last time that Branch played was in 2012, and in 10 games with the Patriots he caught 16 passes for 145 yards. Price per head services remember that in 2008, he played in one career game against the Patriots while with the Seattle Seahawks. The player caught four passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-21 win by the Patriots.
“We figured the questions were going to come up that we were signing this guy who spent some time in New England,” Pagano said. “Is it just a coincidence or do you need the guy to help you win a football game and help your team? Every decision we make is based on what’s best for this team and what gives us the best chance to win, and we think we have one heck of a football player.”
WR Darrius Heyward-Bey – The Colts’ fifth receiver- will not be able to play on Saturday against the Patriots due to a hamstring injury.
In other roster moves on Monday, Indianapolis elevated receiver Josh Lenz to the active roster from the practice squad and placed on injured reserve cornerback Greg Toler and defensive end Fili Moala.
