Branch files emergency grievance against Pats.

New England Patriots holdout wide receiver Deion Branch and his agent, Jason Chayut, have filed a grievance against the team with the NFLPA, sources tell NBCSports.com. They are asking a special master to hear the grievance in an emergency meeting today.


The Patriots gave Branch until 4 p.m. today to negotiate a contract suitable to he and his New York-based agent. Although the Seattle Seahawks talked numbers with Chayut, the Jets wound up being the only team to talk to New England about what its contract demands would be.


The Jets offer, the source said, was for six years and $36 million but it had a “funky structure.”


The Patriots have given the holdout wide receiver a week to seek a trade and negotiate a contract with another team. Branch is scheduled to make more than $1 million this season, the last of his original five-year contract. But he wants a new deal and refused to report to the Patriots' mandatory preseason minicamp and its ongoing training camp.
