Although he didn't generate nearly as big a buzz as fellow free-agent additions Sidney Rice, Zach Miller, Robert Gallery and Tarvaris Jackson, we hear the Seahawks couldn't be happier with Alan Branch. Plenty of eyebrows were raised when the former Cardinal, who played more defensive end than tackle in Arizona, was quickly anointed the new starting three-technique tackle, replacing Brandon Mebane, who was moved to nose tackle. "They're really high on him," said one team source of Branch, who we hear will also be counted on to spell Red Bryant at the five-technique spot. "They feel Branch never really got the shot he deserved in Arizona, and they love his size, athleticism and versatility. He hasn't had a lot of 'wow' moments, but he's been solid. They love the fact that three of their starters on the line — Branch, Mebane and Bryant — weigh well over 300 pounds and can also play multiple positions."
