Oakland Raiders Sign Tyvon Branch To Four-Year Deal

The Oakland Raiders have come to terms with one of their most talented assets in the secondary, signing safety Tyvon Branch to a four-year deal, according to numerous reports. The deal is reportedly worth $26.6 million over the four seasons, with slightly more than $17 million coming in guaranteed money.

The two sides had until Monday evening to work out a deal or Branch would've been forced to sign a tender worth $6.2 million.

Branch has been a great find out of the fourth round thus far, leading the Raiders in tackles the last two seasons. He's also a very durable player, starting in every game since 2009. He's expected to be a leader on a new-and-improving defense, where he'll play alongside Michael Huff in the backfield.

It appears to be a very fair deal for all parties involved. The Raiders lock up their very talented (and still young) safety for the foreseeable future, and Branch can now live comfortably with his family for the rest of his life.
