The Raiders may have to give the franchise tag to one of the two. Who would you rather the team tag to keep from getting to free agency?
Bush is a valuable player, especially since starting running back Darren McFadden is injury prone. If Bush is allowed to go to free agency, the Raiders will likely see him sign to be another team’s starter. Rival Denver could show interest. The Raiders need help on defense and Branch is one of their cornerstone players. Losing him would be detrimental.
The Raiders likely won’t have a ton of salary-cap room, so they must make the right choice here. Take our poll and let us know your reasoning in the comment section below. We will review the poll results Wednesday.
