Dolphins' Andre Branch: Miami wants him back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins will meet with the agent for Branch while at the Senior Bowl, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Branch had a solid season for Miami in 2016 with 5.5 sacks, 49 tackles, and two forced fumbles. Pass rushers don't grow on trees in the NFL and although the Dolphins would like to keep him, Branch could get more lucrative offers from several other teams once he hits free agency.

Dolphins' Andre Branch: Solid contributor for Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Branch ended the 2016 season with 49 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles.

Branch provided a better pass rush than expected this season. He was certainly helped by the presence of Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake but still took advantage of a situation that other players did not. He is a restricted free agent in March and could find a better payday for a team other than Miami.

Dolphins' Andre Branch: Has been impressive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Branch has given the Dolphins a pass rush threat from the right side, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Branch has taken over the starting role from Mario Williams and has given opposing offenses another defender to worry about. He only has 3.5 sacks so far this season but has been in the opponents backfield causing havoc more often than not. The Dolphins boast one of the better defensive lines in the NFL.

Dolphins' Andre Branch: Joins Dolphins on one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andre Branch has agreed to a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins , Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

A continuance of the Dolphins' defensive overhaul, the signing of Branch helps retool a unit already deprived of the services of Olivier Vernon and Derrick Shelby, as both have already signed elsewhere this offseason. Furthermore, Miami and DE Cameron Wake (Achilles) are still at odds over a potential contract extension, but Branch will at least form a rotation with Mario Williams and potentially Dion Jordan (suspension). In the event that Wake holds out or lands elsewhere come the start of the season, Branch figures to assume a sizable role and build upon his 2015 stat line of 24 tackles, including four sacks, and two forced fumbles across 13 games as a member of the Jaguars. However, should Wake return, Branch could struggle to gain fantasy relevance.
