Jets cave to Marshall demands and also supplement compensation with a 4th.

This has NOT been confirmed. Posting only to try and beat any other leaks to the punch.

Here's the thing... if we can get a legitimate starting LB, who's potentially a stud... and a middle round pick... and move on with our lives, I think it's best for everyone.

Yes, I know we can wait a year and potentially get a 1st and 3rd, but there's no telling if that happens.

A sure-fire starter for the defense and a pick is a lot for a guy with Brandon's risk/contract demands.

I still don't think we're trading him, but I like this idea.

Aw, stick it dude! This guy has chanting his love for players he has no intention of coaching including Cutler, and now, if this is true, Marshall. I'm so sick of this secretive, backroom bull**** from this clown. If true, it changes the dynamic of the offense in a big way in my opinion, and not in a positive way either. It just seems this man-child is determined to destroy this offense, for what reason, I can only guess; it's a Belichick thing. Why doesn't he just start a church to his god and name all the players monks. That way the Broncos could be non-profit. Big money in that.

C'mon man. It's not just Marshall, or even Cutler. It's the whole climate, like the upper extremity injury jibberish. What's he going to do after cutting 23 players; tell the public they're not cut, just 'inactive for the Bronco season"? It's silliness for the sake of nothing in particular.

Meh.. the injury thing has always been screwed with, with all smart coaches. While it's more obvious with Orton, they do this so that opposing players can't target a specific part of the player once he comes back. Lower extremity makes it a bit more nebulous, that's all.

Broncos' Brandon Marshall writes the idiot's guide to wide receiving


http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/jeff_pearlman/09/04/marshall/index.html?eref=sihpT1


They are all out there.

Matt Bouza. Ernest Givins. Terance Mathis. Antonio Freeman. Carl Pickens.

They are all alive.

Anthony Carter. David Boston. Eddie Brown. Eric Martin. Ricky Sanders.

They were all star wide receivers; big names making big bucks for big teams in the big spotlights on the biggest stages.

Jerry Butler. Alvin Harper. Webster Slaughter.

If they knocked on your front door today, would you recognize them? Even if they held signs reading I PLAYED WIDE RECEIVER IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE? Even if they were donning their own uniforms? With their last names scrawled across their backs? In neon writing? In English, Egyptian and Japanese?

Wesley Walker. John Jefferson. Freddie Scott.

That's the thing way too many professional athletes seem to forget -- how this Sunday's glory is next Sunday's fish wrap. Yes, America loves its jocks. We will grant them free meals and first-class upgrades and tickets to the finest shows in town. We will click on their websites and purchase their clothing lines and select them first in our fantasy drafts. We will beg and cry and scream as they pass by. "Please, Mr. Carson, can I have your autograph?"

This last example dates back to 1987, when Kansas City's Carlos Carson ranked fourth in the NFL with 1,044 receiving yards. Today, Carson owns two McDonald's franchises in Independence, Mo. -- a fact I am able to share solely because of the existence of Wikipedia. (For all you know, good people of Independence, those same hands scooping your fries once caught footballs thrown by Bill Kenney!)

I bring this up only because in Brandon Marshall, a 25-year-old Denver Broncos receiver, I see an idiot.

An idiot in need of perspective.

Alfred Jenkins. Kevin House. Lionel Manuel.

In the aftermath of last season, during which he ranked third in the NFL with 104 catches and seventh with 1,265 yards, Marshall decided he deserved a new contract. It was a fair enough take -- he has one year remaining on a deal that will pay him $2.2 million (not exactly big bucks among the league's elite pass catchers). When the Broncos refused to renegotiate, however, Marshall faced a difficult dilemma. He could:

A. Man up, play his tail off (with the obvious risk of injury) and break the bank in free agency (the market for 26-year-old superstud receivers -- very, very, very good).

B. Hold out, negotiate behind the scenes and either come to an agreement or skip the season.

C. Go Stephon Marbury on us.

Marshall (sigh) picked C.

In what will inevitably be chronicled in the Best Way to Screw Up Your Reputation dictionary, Marshall demanded a trade, had the demand denied, then reported to training camp and mimicked the behavior of my 2 1/2-year-old son, sans a nap. He whined. He pouted. He moped. He was held out of a preseason game after admitting he didn't know the playbook, then behaved petulantly during a practice open to the news media.

With mouths agape, Marshall walked as his teammates jogged, swatted a pass thrown his way and punted a ball that was supposed to be handed to a ball boy. After the video of his boorish behavior surfaced (hardly a shocker, considering cameras were rolling), Marshall apologized ("I think everybody knows there's a lot of stuff built up there, and me handling it that way wasn't good," he told ESPN), but it was too late -- the team suspended him for insubordination.

Ken Burrough. Ray Jarvis. Daryl Turner.

Predictably, there is talk the Broncos will wash their hands of Marshall; that, come day's end, the pampered player will win out. Maybe he'll go to the New York Jets, with their run-oriented offense and rookie quarterback. Or to the Chicago Bears, reunited with Jay Cutler, another emancipated Denver whiner.

Whatever happens, Marshall needs to remember that 1,000-yard wide receivers do grow on trees. For every Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin, men whose legacies lasted and whose fame is unfading, there are 100 other once-upon-a-time "big game players" now grasping onto that last lick of glory by working the card show circuit and attaching their uniform numbers to the end of their e-mail addresses.

They are out there. They certainly are.

They are out there. They certainly are.

How many WRs have consecutive 100 reception seasons? 9, in the history of the NFL. They really do grow on trees, of those 9, only 3 are active (Wes Welker, Randy Moss and Brandon Marshall). Michael Irvin does have a lasting legacy and unfaiding fame, but not because of his play, it is because of his acting up, just the same way Terrell Owens has lasting fame. Both players by the way outperformed on the field by Marvin Harrison and Isaac Bruce of lesser fame. Michael Irvin is in fact close to being outperformed by a TIGHT END! When it comes to being a WR, behaving poorly is a much better way of being remembered than dominating on the field.

How is Elways reputation doing? how about Eli Manning? they both whined their way out of town and to my knowledge they are both well respected.
