Raiders | Plenty to gain by signing Tyvon Branch long term

The Oakland Raiders could gain some much-needed salary cap room if they are able to sign SS Tyvon Branch to a long-term deal. The team slapped the franchise tag on Branch earlier this offseason, which Branch signed. As a result, the Raiders are obligated to pay Branch $6.2 million this season. As it stands, the Raiders are less than $1 million under the salary cap. Branch's $6.2 million already has been accounted for on the cap.
