Patriots interested in bringing Branch back

The Patriots recently brought on receiver Greg Salas, but it will be interesting to see how the Patriots fill out their receiving group, which consisted of just Brandon Lloyd, Wes Welker, Matthew Slater and Julian Edelman after last week's last round of cuts.
