Jets no longer want Brandon Marshall
Posted by Mike Florio on September 8, 2009 7:15 AM ET

Despite some recent hint-dropping from safety Kerry Rhodes, the New York Jets no longer are interested in acquiring receiver Brandon Marshall from the Broncos.

So says Rich Cimini of the New York Daily News, who writes that the Jets remain interested in beefing up their receiving corps.

And we continue to be befuddled by the fact that the Jets didn't address this glaring weakness sooner. After Laveranues Coles gave back $6 million in guaranteed money for a shot at making more on the market and succeeded in Cincinnati, the Jets should have been working to fill the void.

And the process should have escalated once the Jets opted to trade up for quarterback Mark Sanchez in round one of the draft.

But instead of looking for a receiver later in later rounds, the Jets traded up to the top of Day 2 for a third tailback.

The simple reality? It would have been a lot easier to find during training camp a running back who can step in and contribute at No. 3 on the depth chart this year than it will be to find a starter-quality wideout in September who can figure out the offense on the fly and provide a viable target for the rookie who'll be starting his career without ideal targets for his passes.

Meanwhile, why in the hell haven't they brought in Matt Jones for a workout?

Jets' interest in Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall has waned
By Rich Cimini
DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER

Tuesday, September 8th 2009, 4:00 AM

It was all quiet on the Brandon Marshall front Monday - and it apparently will stay that way.

Even though they're continuing to explore the wide-receiver market, the Jets have shifted their attention away from the Broncos' Pro Bowl wideout, according to league sources.

The Jets have been interested in Marshall for several weeks, and the trade speculation was rampant Sunday when they acquired former Patriots QB Kevin O'Connell from the Lions. The Broncos are coached by Josh McDaniels, formerly the Patriots' offensive coordinator. There was some thought around the league that the Jets would use O'Connell as a bargaining chip for Marshall.

Ricky's not some dumb flava clown RB either... he's actually a bright guy with alot of talent who was given bad advice by his first agent and had the misfortune of going to a desperate franchise in one of the most ridiculous draft trades in history. that's alot of pressure on a kid. and then he got involved with drugs and like most potheads, mistook being stoned for being philosophically deep. could have had a tremendous career if he hadn't been sidetracked the past few years. it seems to me that he's only playing for the paycheck now and not the love of the game. that's a shame.

Agreed. They should get the word out there that the price for Marshall is steep. Two things can result from that mentality:

a.) The Broncos get what they ask for (1st & 4th picks) and send BM is elsewhere.

b.) The trade rumors die because no one will part with those draft picks and BM is forced to get back in line and be a team player. Plus, this option shows that the FO has some teeth and stuck to their guns on this issue.

At this point, it appears the FO did a good job by suspending the baby, unifying most of Broncos Country and allowing players/leaders on the team to speak their mind about BMs actions.

At the end of the day, all I want are Broncos wins...and a championship. Whatever we need to do to obtain that, I am on board for.

Go Broncos!

That'd be pretty good, too! Imagine going into next year's draft with two 1st's and two 3rd's. We could certainly package some picks and get into the high-end of the first round to take a stud QB...food for thought for those who are dissatisfied with our current contingent of QBs.

No, Mcdaniels would trade anyone to the Jets if it made sense to him.

He is not a little girl.

Surprisingly the Jets interest has waned after Marshall is back at practice in Denver, I am bet they were told no in so many words and now Tannenbaum is looking for some other stooge to help out his rookie QB.

In Wanny's defense, they had little option. Fiedler was the QB in that era and while they had Chambers, Fiedler's noodle arm was worse than Grieses after the Raider MNF game.

Fielder was actually a clone of Griese, except worse.

So they pounded Ricky to over 400 carries a year or something which is ridiculous.

Oh I remember their QB situation, and I don't blame them for running it. But they were actually pretty successful when Sammy Morris (I think he was the #2 back then...?) ran it as well.

2 consecutive seasons of OVER 30 carries per game is just absurd no matter how you slice it.

give me a break on this same stupid remark about Orton not being able to throw the ball. he isn't Pennington and not capable of throwing the ball farther than 15 yards. this offense is not built around airing the ball out, besides Marshall's entire game is catches within 10 yards that he turns into longer plays, he doesn't have deep ball speed.

As we noted yesterday, Brandon Marshall returned to practice with the Broncos after his reinstatement on Sunday, as per the Denver Post.

With Marshall's reinstatement -- along with Jets safety Kerry Rhodes' incessant usage of Twitter -- the flames of a trade rumor were stoked once again over the past couple days.

But now, sources speaking to papers on both sides of the deal say nothing is gonna happen. A league source told the Post on Sunday that no trade involving Marshall was in the works, while presumably some different sources told Rich Cimini of the New York Daily News that the Jets' interest in Marshall had waned.

We're still not convinced that this one is dead yet, and we'll keep you posted when we hear more.

Nope we already hashed it out. We have posted a list a few threads back consistenting of 30 something HC dating back to the 1960's to Mike Tomlin. And what you will find that the circumstances, talent wise, challenges, era's, all play into how or when a 30 something coach was or was not able to win in their 30's. McDaniels situation is different than what the 30 something HC's of the past and present were faced with.

Marshall, Orton back at Broncos practice
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 8, 2009 6:26 PM ET

After a preseason filled with unending drama, the Broncos may still line up the quarterback and wide receiver they expected come Week One.

Brandon Marshall and Kyle Orton both returned to practice Tuesday, although Orton's role on Sunday against the Bengals seems more clear.

While coach Josh McDaniels took the predictable route of not naming a starter, he sounded encouraged by Orton's work in practice.

"Obviously there's a little bit of restriction for a quarterback when you've got something on your hand, but for the most part everything was clean," McDaniels said. "Hopeful everybody that was out there today will be ready to go Sunday."

Orton is handling the weekly press conference duties Wednesday that traditionally go to the starting quarterback, another sign that he'll start despite his damaged digit.

Marshall's status is less clear, but his teammates sounded ready to move past his stormy preseason.

Asked about Marshall's return, receiver Brandon Stokley said, "It's great. He made a mistake and now we're all ready just to move on from that."

McDaniels seems like bottom-line coach, and he knows he needs Marshall, especially with Jabar Gaffney iffy with a broken thumb. If Marshall has a "clean" week of practice, it's hard to imagine him riding the pine while McDaniels tries to erase his ugly offseason with a clean 1-0.

"We need [Marshall], and we'll have to wait and see on Sunday," Stokley said.

UPDATE: It's on. McDaniels said he could "absolutely" see Marshall playing a significant role. "Look, he's a good football player," McDaniels said. "If he's ready to go and we go through this week of practice and feel that's the direction we want to play on Sunday, certainly we all know what he can do as a football player." Gaffney also returned to practice, but his status is less certain.

Marshall will have a monster year and become a big McD supporter and will sign a long term contract with the Broncos around game 15.

I'm glad the Jets have no more intrest. No matter if you like him or hate him, were better with him on the field......someone will need to draw coverage from all those screens.

Valid point except if you run a screen 30 times a game, teams will load up on it no matter how many times Marshall runs a 9.

Let's not forget Miami running him into the ground. Who was that? Wannstedt?

Ha.

I have a friend who is a dolphins fan. He absolutely hates Wannstedt.

You can always control the rights to your franchise player.

For how long? Can Bowlen Franchise tag Brandon for the next 5 or 10 years?

Is it the scenario "We Can Keep You Forever"! Question is....when will Bmarsh be free to test the free agency waters?

When will Marshall be granted Parole from the Bronco Gulag to play for a team of his choosing?

If Brandon isn't putting up Franchise-Pro Bowl stats....what since does it make to continue to apply the Franchise tag to that player?

How, exactly, is it foolish to ask a price above market value if you're in no pinch to sell. Foolish would be the exact opposite, but speaking to a fool I would doubt you'll grasp that.

Hey Chuckle Nuts, nim rods like you and your ilk are skirting possible scenarios that could ensue. And you can't seem to think outside the box thats not my fault! Only fools like you can't see the forest for the trees. :~ohyah!:

Have a nice day....O'Brite One. :thumbs:
