According to Jason LaCanfora of, the Raiders and franchise-tagged safety Tyvon Branch agreed to a four-year contract Saturday.

Branch had signed his $6.2 million tender and worked out with the team through the offseason, and he was seen as one of the least problem-some players who were franchise tagged this off-season.

Steve Wyche of the NFL Network reports the deal is worth $26.6 million over four years, with $17.1 million guaranteed.

Monday’s the deadline for tagged players to get a long-term deal, or else they’ll have to play under their one-year tenders. Branch becomes the ninth of the 21 tagged players to get a deal this year, following Brees’ mega-deal yesterday.
