Cardinals' Tyvon Branch: Secures 10 tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Branch secured 10 tackles (nine solo) and one pass defended during Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers.

An offseason signee of the Cardinals, Branch has so far logged 78 percent of the defensive snaps, which ranks fourth among fellow defensive backs, while also picking up 61 percent on special teams. The multi-faceted defender should continue to receive plenty of run in a scheme that uses six DBs frequently and occasionally seven. Considering the usage and his veteran savvy, it's no surprise that Branch boasts the second-most tackles (16) on the team behind starting strong safety Tony Jefferson.

Cardinals' Tyvon Branch: Second-string strong safety
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Branch is listed as the second-string strong safety on the Cardinals' first unofficial depth chart of training camp, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Nothing is set in stone after a week and a half of training camp, but Branch's standing behind D.J. Swearinger isn't a great sign for his prospects after inking a two-year deal in the offseason. In the end, whoever is handed the job next to Tyrann Mathieu (knee), when healthy, will hold sway in IDP formats.

Cardinals' Tyvon Branch: Signs with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Cardinals and Branch agreed to terms of a two-year contract Wednesday, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

After opening his career with three 100-tackle campaigns in five seasons with the Raiders, Branch sustained debilitating injuries in both 2013 and 2014, namely a fractured fibula and broken foot. Handed a one-year contract from the Chiefs last March, he totaled 43 tackles (35 solo), two defensive touchdowns, one interception, one sack, and one fumble recovery, while logging 39 percent of the defensive snaps. With the potential to earn $10 million over the course of his upcoming contract, the Cardinals may have promised him the nominal starting job at strong safety.
