Colts Sign Deion Branch Five Days Prior To Playoff Meeting With Patriots
" BOSTON (CBS) — All’s fair in love, war, and playoff football … but even this seems out of bounds.

The Colts announced on Monday afternoon that they agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Deion Branch, a longtime Patriots receiver and favorite of quarterback Tom Brady. The move comes just five days before the Colts will visit Gillette Stadium to take on the Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs.

The Colts made the announcement along with the news that receiver Josh Lenz was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster, before listing paragraph after paragraph about Branch’s accolades earned while with the Patriots. Here’s a taste:

“Branch is a two-time Super Bowl winner and was awarded the Pete Rozelle Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XXXIX,” the announcement read. “His 11 receptions in the game tied the Super Bowl record, also achieved by Jerry Rice, Dan Ross and Wes Welker. Branch also led all receivers in Super Bowl XXXVIII and has totaled a combined 21 receptions in three Super Bowl appearances, which ranks third all-time, trailing only Jerry Rice (33) and Andre Reed (27) "
