Patriots do not stand pat, trade for Branch from Seattle.
Per Schefter's twitter.
Now, obviously there was no way in heck Seattle would have traded him to us, but that gives you an idea about what a decent veteran wideout would go for.
Filed to ESPN: Seattle traded WR Deion Branch to New England for a fourth-round pick. Bet Tom Brady is happy.
Personally, I'm very much in favor of dumping the 4th for a player like Branch, even if its a rental. Once you get past the 3rd round Devaney blows his picks on long shots anyway, so the loss of one of those isn't a crippling disaster.

I agree with the thought of trading a 4th for a player with proven skill.... but for the record every player 4th round and on are long shots.
