Kansas City Chiefs sign S Tyvon Branch

Tyvon Branch will make 2.1 million this season with another 2 million available through incentives. This is a very smart, buy low, one-year prove it deal by the Chiefs. Branch has missed all but 4 games over the past 2 season with injuries, but he was once a solid safety, grading out as Pro Football Focus’ 11th ranked safety in 2011 and their 30th ranked safety in 2012. He’s only going into his age 29 season. After all the injuries, it’s fair to wonder if he’ll ever be the same player again, but this is a very low risk deal and he could easily be a short-term replacement for Eric Berry as a hybrid box safety/linebacker, as Berry recovers from cancer.

Grade: A
