Pillars of the NFL: Deion Branch

In Patrick McCaskey's Pillars of the NFL: Coaches Who Have Won Three or More Championships he covers the ten greatest NFL coaches of all-time.  Among the pillars is Bill Belichick who coaches the New England Patriots to three Super Bowls.  Belichick is one of today's most gifted coaches and he has already made his mark on NFL history. 


Deion Branch


Receiver Deion Branch, acquired in the 2002 draft, was a huge addition to Belichick’s offense--a stellar wide receiver for the Patriots. He played for 4 years early in his 11-season career and then returned for most of three more seasons towards the end of his career. Branch was at the receiving end of many Tom Brady passes at key moments.
