It is way too early into the off season, but bear with me. Harris has been an absolute monster thus far in his first offseason as a pro. While there haven't been any pads used in practice, let's say this continues well into preseason and he eventually gets the start for the season. What would we do with Branch? There would be no point to cut him because the guaranteed money and we obviously need the depth. How long would we need to keep him in order to cut him without penalty? This year? Next? Would it even make sense to cut him if he has to stay two of his three years? I doubt a team would trade for his contract. So all things considered, if Harris shines and plays like the way he has in minicamp, is it possible that Branch will be a 24 million dollar back up for his whole three year contract? This is, of course, all speculation at this point. Just curious if Harris does play especially well, what would be the best thing to do with Branch.
