Deion Branch: Waived by Patriots
Update: Branch (hamstring) was waived Saturday by the Patriots, ESPN Boston reports.

Recommendation: New England's injury situation among its receivers precipitated the move. The Patriots needed another healthy receiver, so they activated Greg Salas off the practice squad and parted ways with the gimpy Branch, who only saw 20 targets this season anyway. If Branch goes unclaimed, he could end up back with the Patriots later in the year.
