Oakland Raiders Free Agency: Strong Safety, Tyvon Branch

For those of us who were fortunate enough to be around in Tyvon's rookie season, you will remember that he was an active member of Silver and Black Pride.

Here is a sample from his sophomore season: Talkin' With Tyvon

Now, the young safety that many of us have believed to be Pro-Bowl ready will be entering free agency.

This past season, Tyvon really came into his own with 109 tackles, the NFL Leader for a Strong Safety. he also had five passes defensed, a pick and a fumble recovery.

In my mind he is in the Top 5 safety free agents and the number one strong safety in Free Agency.

I think that losing him would be a bigger loss than losing Michael Bush or any of the other free agents from the 2011 Oakland Raider roster.

If you were Reggie McKenzie would you try and extend him for 4-5 years, franchise him or let him walk and go after someone else.

Personally, I would love to see him matched up with Dashon Goldson or LaRon Landry in 2012!
