Former Titans OT Mario Branch Passes Away

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports Mario Branch, a mammoth offensive tackle who spent two training camps with the Titans, has died of congestive heart failure.

Branch was 31. He will be buried on Saturday on Greenwood, Mississippi. A 6-foot-7, 345-pounder from Mississippi Valley State, Branch was with the Titans in training camps in 2003 and 2004, but he never made the final roster.

A family member said he’d battled complications in recent weeks before passing away in Southern Hills Medical Center.
