I guess he hasn't been too happy with his representation so far this off-season. Maybe his agent was asking for too much $$$? Anyone know if the Hawks have relationships with Baratz?

Don’t be surprised if Branch signs with the Jaguars, where former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is the new head coach.

RW3 will chew up Gus' soft zone/prevent.

Since coming to Seattle (2011, 2012) he has a "WHOPPING" 63 tackles and 4 sack, 4 -PD, 0-FF. So he's giving us 31 tackles, 2 sacks and 2- Pass Defense a year. That's not exactly great production.
Also factor in that his first year here was more productive than last year:
29-tackles, 1- sack, 2- PD.
And by most of your own admission the run defense wasn't good the 2nd half of the year. So if the guy offers no pass rush and the run defense wasn't great (which is his specialty) than how valuable is he really? I think people on here overvalue Branch.
