This is something the Dolphins aren't using to doing - bringing back one of their own players instead of shopping in free agency. According to a tweet by Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the team is still expecting to draft a DE high in the draft too.
As for WR Kenny Stills, there is reason to believe the WR has reached a deal, whether it be with the Dolphins or not. Just now on Twitter, former Dolphins WR Matt Hazel tweeted the following:
This too insinuates that Stills has reached a deal. Branch tweeted something similar moments before his deal was announced.
Stay tuned for updates.
Branch's contract is reported to be worth $27 million over 3 years. Guaranteed money has not been reported. This comes via Ian Rapoport.
