View Full Version : Anquan Boldin

Given that Marshall is a turd and faces an 8 game suspension this time, I feel that trading for Anquan Boldin would be a good move.

That being said, it would have to come at the right price and not at the 9 mil a year he wanted from the Cardinals.

I would like to see him come at a much friendly price ala Randy Moss...which McD could hopefully help encourage.

We would have to pay Marshall next year anyway, so I wouldn't feel bad paying a quality guy like this some $$$, since he is not a prima dona like Marshall.

Thoughts?

MORE TROUBLE FOR BRANDON MARSHALL

When the now-disappeared (and perhaps it’s a good thing) Pre-Combine Mock Draft showed the Broncos taking a receiver with the twelfth overall pick in the 2009 draft, dozens (OK, hundreds) of Denver fans scoffed.

One of the broader points of the exercise was that anything/everything can happen between late February and late April, making the practice of manufacturing mock drafts before March a waste of time.

Case in point — the Broncos will suddenly be taking a closer look at wideouts in round one in light of the fact that Brandon Marshall has been arrested again.

Per ESPN.com, Marshall was busted for disorderly conduct in Atlanta on Sunday. He posted a $300 bond and was released.

And as Commissioner Roger Goodell explained at his January 30 pre-Super Bowl press conference, the punitive aspect of the Personal Conduct Policy focuses on repeat offenders. Of which Marshall is one.

Based on three arrests starting in March 2006, Goodell suspended Marshall for two games in 2008. On appeal to Goodell, the banishment was cut to a single game.

So don’t be shocked if Marshall gets the Chris Henry treatment on this one, with an eight-game suspension.

I wanted to get rid of Marshall after last off season and pick up Boldin. I am even more sure of it now despite Boldin's injury history and relative age compared to Brandon. now that JAYC will not be here , I see no reason to not move on this. I prefer football players on my favorite team to be arrogant, not immature hoodlums with criminal records..

I am just saying he is a ticking time bomb. If he doesn't get suspended by the league this time, he will **** up somehow. That is why the FO already said they wont extend his contract. We need to figure out something now!

I have not heard any significant rumors on the trading of Brandon Marshall, heard a few things about Tony Scheffler. But hear me out. Brandon Marshall will be a restricted free agent after this season and wil likely (knowing Brandon) want a HUGE contract extension. Brandon Marshall has all the talent to become the next great wide reciever, but with the latest arrest (though dropped). He could be on his way out. First of all, why sign a guy to a huge contract when you have no idea if he's going to be available for the upcoming season? Also, why re-sign a guy who dropped a fifth of his passes last year? Don't get me wrong I love Brandon Marshall too death, but like I said we can't sign a guy not knowing what his sitiatuion is year in and year out. You might be wondering, well who could we trade him too? How about this trade. Trade Brandon Marshall to the Arizona Cardinals for Anquan Boldin. This trade makes perfect sense. One reciever wants out, the other is pushing himself out. Both are star wideouts and compete each week. Both teams are relatively near eachother and the players may not even have to move homes. The only concern I have is Anqaun Boldin's size, 6'1. Compared to Brandon Marshall's size 6'4. McD had Randy Moss in New England, so he may want a bigger reciever. If this trade were to go down, happy or no? I'd be sad to see Brandon Marshall leave, but he preety much forced his own departure.

and how are you proposing we aquire Boldin. i mean it is a nice thought to get him, but how do you plan on getting him from the Cards?

they are invested in Warner for the next 2 years and aren't going to add another QB from the 06 draft class to backup Warner for 2 years and hope he decides to stay in Arizona when he is eligible for FA.

Brandon Marshall tried to stay out of trouble.

The Broncos' star receiver had been regularly attending counseling classes, right up until last week. Perhaps no one has helped raise more money for the Rev. Leon Kelly's after-school program that helps steer kids away from trouble.

Yet, trouble found Marshall again early Sunday, and it figures to cost him millions and millions of dollars.

"I deal with a lot of guys, a lot of people who have been written off by the system, by family, by friends, whatever," Kelly said. "And I respect the accomplishments and talents that 'B' has a football player. But I'm more concerned about how you are as a person. And I know what B has gone through, and I've seen how far he's developed and matured as a person. And I've seen his sincerity."
Marshall was arrested for disorderly conduct after an argument in Atlanta with his fiancee Michi Nogami Campbell, who also was charged. Although charges against both were dismissed Monday morning, the arrest itself didn't exactly come at a good time for Marshall.

Never mind the possible suspension Marshall could receive from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as a repeat offender of the league's personal-conduct policy. The suspension, by itself, will cut into Marshall's $2.2 million salary this season.

But it's the following season, 2010, where Marshall may have cost himself a financial windfall.

Marshall becomes a victim of the NFL labor disagreement. Because the collective- bargaining agreement has been reopened, Marshall as a fourth-year player will only be eligible for restricted free agency after this season instead of unrestricted free agency, when he can sell himself to the highest bidder.

In an uncapped year, players aren't eligible for free agency until after their sixth year of league service. Given that receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, at 31, just got an $8 million a year contract from Seattle, Marshall, who is only 24, could have easily commanded a $9 million-plus average annual contract from the Broncos to keep him.

Marshall was hoping to work out a contract extension with the Broncos this spring, but the pending ruling by Goodell probably precludes any further negotiation. Instead, the most Marshall would likely make as a restricted free agent in 2010 is about $2.5 million.

There is precedence to suggest Marshall could be facing an eight-game suspension this season. That would cost him half his salary, or $1.1 million, this year and perhaps up to $6 million or $7 million next year if the Broncos continue to control him on a year-to-year basis.

"The way the domestic-violence law is written, discretion is taken out of the hands of the police who are called," Kelly said. "B didn't have a bruise on him, and as big as he is, Michi didn't have a bruise on her. I don't condone violence or striking a woman in any way, shape or form. But to be held for a few hours and released for $300, and the judge to look at the facts and quickly dismiss it — that just doesn't happen. I just pray the league looks at the total picture."

Footnotes.

After signing six free-agent defensive starters, the Broncos are going to work on their depth. They will visit Monday night with Cleveland free-agent nickel back Travis Daniels, who will first meet with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. If the Broncos get Daniels, he would compete for the nickel-back position vacated by Karl Paymah, who became a free agent. . . .

Paymah visited Thursday with Baltimore and will meet with at least two more teams next week.

Brandon Marshall-WR- Broncos Mar. 6 - 9:42 am et

The Broncos are not expected to pursue extending Brandon Marshall's contract pending the NFL's review of his latest arrest.

Denver probably would've been aggressive had Marshall showed maturity this offseason, but instead he'll play 2009 at his current $2.198M salary. He'd be a restricted free agent in 2010 if the league goes to an uncapped year.

I would trade Marshall and Sheff for Boldin. Assuming we could work out a good contract for Anquan.

Sheff would be an upgrade over Leonard Pope at TE.

Thank you Rev! Why in the hell would the Cards give up Boldin for Marshall given everything you guys have said is wrong with him? Marshall and a high pick 2nd and maybe even a 1st would be the only way the Cards would take on Marshall.
