first_img LISTEN: Tyvon Branch, Cardinals’ Safety Comments   Share   His decision to leave the AFC West and join the Cardinals was a pretty easy one.“They’ve got a solid team,” he told Burns and Gambo on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Tuesday. “Ten-plus wins the past three seasons; Carson Palmer is obviously a great quarterback (and) in this league if you have a great quarterback you have a chance to win it all.“So that was kind of like the big thing to me. Then the defense is exciting, they make a lot of big plays and I wanted to be a part of that.”Talking about Branch at the Arians Family Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic last Sunday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the 29-year-old is someone they’ve known about for a while.“He’s a very versatile, fast safety who can play man-to-man,” Arians said. “If you go back and you watch the Chiefs and the Patriots, he was locked on (Rob) Gronkowski. He’s that type of safety and you can’t have enough of them.”A fourth-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft out of Connecticut, Branch has appeared in 75 games and collected 461 tackles (355 solo), eight sacks, four interceptions, four fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles. The 6-foot, 210-pound safety was timed at 4.31 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the Combine, and that’s a mark he said he’d like to think he can still run. Even if he can’t, Branch certainly does not lack for speed.
