good for him and his heart for the RAIDERS. but it sucks for him.
from 6 mill to 715 thou? in exchange for two more yrs? MAN, these guys have good heart or are plain st....! wasn't branch a franchised player last year? and now a restructured contract? kill me! kill me know1, all these players are afraid of losing their jobs. in two more yrs you knowe branch won't get his 6.5 million for 2016 band 2017? he will be traded and or released by then? who respects contracts anymore? unless the player is "that good?". branch is pretty good and good enough to keep around. but, yopu gotta get guys like dhbey, dmac. even palmer to restructure. specially the new guys that don't know what's going on and are afraid of losing their jobs!
anyways, thank you t branch. namdi asomugha should have learned from you.

Tommy Kelly, Carson Palmer, and DHB are being targeted to restructure and I heard Rolando McClain is set to be released when free agency starts.

In addition to Branch, Mike Briesel has restructured his contract as well.

This is the kind of news I like to wake up to. Now get Kelly & Palmer to free up some space and we're ready to sign some of our FA's.
