NFL Free Agency 2015: Titans should target Tyvon Branch

New, comments

Tyvon Branch is another guy that would be a huge upgrade for the Tennessee Titans.

Bernard Pollard is now an ex-Titan.  His replacement on the current roster would be Daimion Stafford, who played pretty well last year, but the Titans could afford to upgrade the position.  Tyvon Branch would be the ideal guy to make that upgrade.

Branch was cut by the Raiders earlier this week.  I asked Levi Damien of Silver and Black Pride if Branch has anything left in the tank:

Tyvon Branch has a lot left. He's just 28-years-old and hasn't hardly played the past two seasons. The question in Oakland was a matter of ROI. $9.6 mil for a player who has been lost to IR within the first three games of the season. If his injuries are behind him, someone is going to get a damn fine strong safety.

If the Titans do enter the Branch market, they won't be without competition. He already has visits scheduled with the Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins.

He also will not come cheap.  Competition drives the price up for any player.  Add to that the fact that the safety play around the league is pretty bad, and Branch is set for a very nice payday.  That shouldn't scare the Titans off, however, because they are, as Jean-Ralphio would say, flushed with cash.
