FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (AP) -- The New England Patriots have re-signed Deion Branch for their battered corps of wide receivers.
They signed him for the second time this season on Wednesday after
Donte Stallworth joined Julian Edelman on injured reserve. Stallworth
hurt his ankle in Monday night's 42-14 win over the Houston Texans.
Edelman suffered a foot injury in the previous game, a 23-16 victory
over the Miami Dolphins.
The Patriots first cut Branch on Aug. 31, re-signed him after their
second game, then released him Nov. 17 after the ninth game. He has
nine catches for 80 yards in seven games. They drafted him in the
second round in 2002, traded him to Seattle on Sept. 11, 2006 and
re-acquired him from the Seahawks on Oct. 12, 2010.
The Patriots also announced the signing of rookie wide receiver-kick
returner Tony Logan to the practice squad.
