|Notes and Observations Week 5: Patriots Defense Solid After the Bye Week; Beat Dallas 30-6||Bruins Continue Slump, Lose 3rd Straight to Start 2015-2016||Cowboys Defense Gave Patriots’ Offensive Line All It Could Handle||Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 5, 2015|
For the second time this season, the Patriots have released wide receiver Deion Branch.
Branch has been seldom-used this season, compiling only nine catches in seven games this season. But, he remained a valuable and reliable target for Tom Brady, until now.
In a related move, the team also released Malcom Williams and signed WR Greg Salas and activated CB Aqib Talib.
I would expect the team to re-sign Branch at some point later in the season.
