Jets not guilty of tampering with Branch

Last summer, the New England Patriots filed tampering charges, with the league office, against the Jets regarding disgruntled wide receiver Deion Branch, who was holding out at the time, and looking for a trade.

The Jets issued this statement yesterday:

"We are pleased Commissioner Goodell determined that the Patriots' tampering allegations were completely unfounded, that the Jets conduct did not violate League policy, and consequently, the Patriots had no basis to claim an injury."
