The Oakland Raiders have designated safety Tyvon Branch as the team's franchise player. The Silver and Black applied the franchise tag to Branch, who has started every game over the past three seasons and has led the team in tackles for two straight years.

"We are pleased that Tyvon will return to the Raiders in 2012," said Oakland Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie.  "Tyvon is a talented, productive player who we hope will be wearing the Silver and Black for many years to come. We will continue to work on a long-term deal to make that happen."
