Wide receiver Deion Branch is back with the New England Patriots.

Branch signed with the Patriots on Tuesday, rejoining the team that cut him three weeks ago, according to the NFL.com.

Branch should have no trouble fitting back into the Patriots offense after playing six of his 11 NFL seasons with the team. Branch and Tom Brady hooked up on 51 receptions for 702 yards and five touchdowns in 2011.

The Patriots were able to sign Branch after the team released Greg Salas early Tuesday.

The Patriots also added tight end Kellen Winslow early Tuesday after Aaron Hernandez suffered a high ankle sprain on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
