DL Alan Branch has officially signed, as expected since last week.

The 6’6, 325 pound linemen is expected to add another big body to the line to help against the run.

To make room on the roster, the Patriots released LB Deontae Skinner. He had 9 tackles and one sack during his time with New England this season.

If he clears waivers, he will be eligible to sign with the Pats practice squad. I expect the Pats will want to keep him around so I look for that to happen if another team doesn’t pick him up.
