Report: Brandon Marshall, Broncos to talk today

Posted by Mike Florio on April 13, 2010 9:24 AM ET
With the Pittsburgh Steelers giving Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=3635) to the Jets for a fifth-round draft pick only eight days after Donovan McNabb (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=704) fetched a second-rounder and a 2011 third- or fourth-rounder for the Eagles, the Denver Broncos need to be reconsidering their position that they want only a first-round pick for receiver Brandon Marshall (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=3653).

Whatever the Broncos have decided, they'll apparently be communicating it to Marshall today. Per Josina Anderson of FOX 31 in Denver, the Broncos and Marshall will meet Tuesday (http://twitter.com/JosinaAnderson/status/12102586658) to discuss the future.

It could be that the Broncos have decided to bring back Marshall for 2010, if/when he chooses to ink his restricted free agency tender. Or it could be that the Broncos want him to sign the tender so that they'll be able to trade him on a moment's notice during the draft, if a good opportunity arises.

Or it could be that they want to get him to sign the tender so that they can keep him, but that they'll simply tell him they want the tender to be signed and ready in the event that a trade opportunity arises.

Either way, recent developments have thrown a large wrench into the team's plans. At the end of the 2009 season, there were strong signs that a trade was inevitable. Now, it's anyone's guess as to whether Marshall will be returning for a fifth season with the team.

With the recent talk about GMs thinking he'll only fetch a 2nd, I think it makes sense to offer up the illusion that there may be a deal in the works in order to make teams think that it's a 1st or he's staying in Denver.

Doom has nothing to do with it. He'll get paid, and he won't whine if the Broncos ink Marshall first. He isn't Cutler after all.

Absolutely! What kind of message would that send? This has got to be a "sign the tender" meeting. Whether he is traded or we keep him that needs to be done. He has had his time to find a team willing to part with a first for him.

IIRC They didn't single Marshall out specifically. They just told him that they though some players had been mailing it in the previous games and practices and they thought there should be more accountability.

We would be getting owned if we only get a late second from them. Just think the seahawks screwed us on the draft two years in a row. Last year we gave up our top 15 pick for a second rounder , Alphoso Smith need I say more. Then instead of being able to get our pick back for Brandon Marshall in his prime, they trade back a spots in the second round and want to give us that pick!

this is a forum board all he is doing is creating a discussion on the possibility of it happening. Which if he does get signed long term I don't think would look good if Doom hasn't been signed.

Bad assumption there. I couldn't be further from the "haters". Check my track record here. I've been consistently more pro-McD than most here and have defended his choices extensively.

This is one decision, though, I wouldn't support. It has nothing to do with being a "lover" or "hater". It's simply bad business. There is absolutely no reason to sign any of the RFAs to long term contracts this year. Not one. Not when the owners have no idea if there will even be football in 2011. Not when the owners have no idea what kind of CBA they'll have in place after this year. It makes no sense to do it for anyone, but if for some reason they were to do it, to do it for Marshall prior to Dumervil is just insane IMO.

This is one of the things I don't get. Everyone keeps saying that the RFAs aren't getting deals done because of the uncertainty regarding the CBA, but that seems bogus.

If the CBA was truly such an x-factor, then why did teams go through Unrestricted Free Agency the same as always? What's so different about the RFAs that teams aren't signing them? Denver signed a whole new DL in UFA...I think each of them got 2 or 3 year deals.

Or does it simply have to do with all the teams being too cheap to sign long term deals when they know that they can get production out of their "meat" for one year on the RFA tags? Houston signed Dameco Ryans to a long term deal, and I hope that there've been others as well.

It seems like a BS move to not pony up the money for the players just based on the fact that you don't HAVE TO this year. I know it's a business, but seriously, these players have such a limited shelf life anyway. Doesn't make sense why players like Kuper and Doom haven't gotten long term extensions this year, when it's clear that they don't have the baggage or issues and that they are in the teams long term plans.

It makes more sense why Marshall hasn't gotten a deal done because of the overall uncertainty regarding his status and conduct. But even then, most people agree he is deserving of a new contract, even if it's not quite as much as he THINKS that he deserves.

bowtown
04-13-2010, 08:38 AM
I think another possibility is that they are bringing Marshall in to let him know that they are starting up contract negotiations again and that they need him to sign the tender and be patient while in the CBA questions play themselves out, and if they can't get something worked out with him by a certain date, they will promise to trade him.

Hmmm... just read back over that. Yeah, there's no chance that's what this is, they are going to trade him.

I don't agree. Players sign at their own pace. Agents will sit on a deal. there is no real time table to get things done, and there are not a lot of RFAs signed, yet. That tells me that the teams are still trying to figure out how to deal conrtractually with 2010 in light of 2011 and I imagine the agents are in the same boat..

There are so many assumptions made about what is happening or not happening that the opinions espressed look absolutely stupid. How do you know there has not been discussions between the FO and all of the RFAs? Do you or anyone here sit in McDs office and monitor his phone calls? Anyone? Thought not. But we sure have a lot of "experts" around here who just "know" what is going on, and who just 'know' what McD or any of the front office people are doing or thinking.

The manufactored and minupulated "facts" and factoids around here would be funny if they weren't pathetic.

This is one of the things I don't get. Everyone keeps saying that the RFAs aren't getting deals done because of the uncertainty regarding the CBA, but that seems bogus.

I'm not personally saying that they aren't getting deals done, because some obviously are. I'm just saying that it's not good business to do so.

If the CBA was truly such an x-factor, then why did teams go through Unrestricted Free Agency the same as always? What's so different about the RFAs that teams aren't signing them?

It's pretty obvious, isn't it? UFAs with any kind of talent and ability are not going to sign one year deals. Period. If a team wants them, they have to outbid everyone else (with the exception of a small minority who take hometown discounts)....plain and simple.

Or does it simply have to do with all the teams being too cheap to sign long term deals when they know that they can get production out of their "meat" for one year on the RFA tags?

Not so much cheap as it is good business IMO. Bowlen would be out a TON of money if he signed all his RFAs to long term deals and there was no football in 2011. It would be crazy for him to do that right now.

Add to that the issue of the salary cap. What if they lower it in 2010 under whatever new system is in place? Not likely, I know, but it could happen. You'd be screwed if you signed contracts with guys for more than they were valued at under a lower cap system. It would seriously hamper them in FA and kill their payroll. Why do that when there are so many questions out there and no answers?

Houston signed Dameco Ryans to a long term deal, and I hope that there've been others as well.

Yup, there are always exceptions. Honestly, though, he is the only big name guy anyone here can probably name that has had this done.

It seems like a BS move to not pony up the money for the players just based on the fact that you don't HAVE TO this year. I know it's a business, but seriously, these players have such a limited shelf life anyway. Doesn't make sense why players like Kuper and Doom haven't gotten long term extensions this year, when it's clear that they don't have the baggage or issues and that they are in the teams long term plans.

Again, though, it's a fine line. The Broncos in particular have a bunch of RFAs and it would cost a lot do take care of them all now. Could it be done? Sure. But why would you when you don't even know what the salary cap could be next year? You could completely screw yourself and your payroll budget before you even knew it by trying to predict what it will be.

Most likely scenario.

s0phr0syne
04-13-2010, 09:11 AM
I dunno beantown, not arguing with you per se here, but I don't buy into the salary cap concerns really, because, again, that would have precluded teams from spending in UFA.

There's no true or false here, so your interpretation of the situation could certainly be the correct one. But, IMO, looks like teams are forcing the tags because while the salaries are guaranteed, there's far less of an investment than there would be with signing bonuses.

Denver and other teams with valued RFAs have already gotten more production out of the players than they paid them for with their rookie contracts (e.g. Doom, Kuper, and Marshall have all easily out peformed their rookie contracts). To me, uncertainty be damned, some of the players have earned their long term extensions.

Obviously, I'm just a fan arguing for what I perceive as "right", while the FO is looking at this from a business standpoint.

God, I hope so. My gut tells me they are getting him to sign the tender to unload him. If we can get a 1st or a top-half 2nd for him, it wouldn't be the end of the world, but its clear the Broncos are better with Brandon, not without. The trades this offseason have been pretty disappointing in terms of return. Boldin, Holmes, and McNabb went for lower than their perceived values. I just hope we don't panic and try to trade him as opposed to getting a first for him.

DENVER - FOX31 sports has learned the Denver Broncos and their Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall plan to formally talk on Tuesday.

Sources told FOX31's Josina Anderson Tuesday morning via text, “Marshall to huddle with Broncos today about future.”

The Broncos offered a first-round restricted free agent tender on their top offensive target totaling $2.521 million on March 3.

Three days later Marshall went on his first visit with the Seattle Seahawks.

In the meantime, Fox31 Sports has learned that there has been more interest in Marshall’s services than what has been reported, including from some teams many would not expect.

Marshall has until April 15 to sign an offer sheet from another club as a restricted free agent. If Marshall is still unsigned to his tender with Denver on June 1, the Denver Broncos must re-issue that same tender to Marshall at that time.

Thereafter, Marshall would have 14 days to accept it. If Marshall declines, on June 15 the Broncos can tender him to 10 percent increase to his 2009 salary to retain exclusive rights to him.

Marshall recorded 101 catches for 1,120 yards last season in only 15 games of action. He did not play in the reguar-season finale, a 44-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Marshall set the NFL's single-game record for receptions with 21 against the Indianapolis Colts Dec. 13, 2009.

Marshall will speak with McDaniels on phone

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on April 13, 2010 11:58 AM ET
The slow pace to Brandon Marshall's trade talks should pick up with the NFL Draft finally almost here.

A report came out this morning that Marshall and Broncos management will huddle Tuesday, getting Marshall's name back in the news. That talk will take place on the phone, not in person, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

Santonio Holmes' trade doesn't figure to help Marshall get fair value, but they are different cases. The Steelers were prepared to release Holmes; we think the Broncos could live with taking Marshall back if they don't get any decent offers.

Meanwhile, KDVR's Josina Anderson reports that "some teams many would not expect" have shown interest in Marshall. Interest is one thing; we'll see if there are any teams willing to give up significant trade value on top of a monster contract.


This was originally reported by the Denver Post

To be honest, I can't remember the last time I saw him take a "big" hit. He tends to get gang tackled a lot because of his style of play where he's always looking to break tackles and often runs sideways around the middle of the field, looking for the extra yards.....but it's usually a gradual takedown-type scenario where several other guys often "break" his fall to some extent. I really don't recall him ever taking that big one-on-one shot you often see guys take going across the middle that ends up in a concussion or cracked ribs, etc.

I'm hoping they hug it out and we sign him or something. If we give up anything less than a 1st, I'll be disappointed.

Josina Anderson just sent me a direct message on Twitter saying: They are huddling over the phone not in person. Lombardi and National Football Post reported it was in person meeting. That just misconstrued. Actually another reporter from National Football Post tweetedwrote it was in person meeting... Lombardi was clarifying.

BM is on a photo shoot in LA today.

Someone must have finally pointed that out to Josina the hack.

To be honest, I can't remember the last time I saw him take a "big" hit. He tends to get gang tackled a lot because of his style of play where he's always looking to break tackles and often runs sideways around the middle of the field, looking for the extra yards.....but it's usually a gradual takedown-type scenario where several other guys often "break" his fall to some extent. I really don't recall him ever taking that big one-on-one shot you often see guys take going across the middle that ends up in a concussion or cracked ribs, etc.

The last one I remember was week 1, Maualuga laid him out right after a catch over the middle. It wasn't quite the destruction that DJ put on Roy Williams but it was a solid hit none the less.

Marshall will speak with McDaniels on phone

The slow pace to Brandon Marshall's trade talks should pick up with the NFL Draft finally almost here.

A report came out this morning that Marshall and Broncos management will huddle Tuesday, getting Marshall's name back in the news. That talk will take place on the phone, not in person, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

Santonio Holmes' trade doesn't figure to help Marshall get fair value, but they are different cases. The Steelers were prepared to release Holmes; we think the Broncos could live with taking Marshall back if they don't get any decent offers.

Meanwhile, KDVR's Josina Anderson reports that "some teams many would not expect" have shown interest in Marshall. Interest is one thing; we'll see if there are any teams willing to give up significant trade value on top of a monster contract.


This was originally reported by the Denver Post
I love how upset Florio is getting just at the idea we might get some value.

That would be a terrible trade for us. Ginn sucks compared to Marshall and there's no one in the 2nd round I'd rather have than Marshall... We honestly just need to pay the Beast.

2nd and a player - yes. 2nd and Ginn - no.

Meh, Ginn would fill the KR/PR for our team allow Eddie to be the star WR. If Marshall is gone, our WR corps is going to need all the little advantages it can get.

I know it's been talked about to no end but I believe we tried to do just that

Pretty sure Denver offered a deal, BM declined. Denver offered a tender, BM has yet to sign. There's a very valid reason not to just give the guy what he wants.

Just paying him might be the worst possible solution.

he'll sign his tender so they can work out a trade before draft day

If a #1 is really off the table, then they better figure out how to keep him.

Or the equivelent of a #1, because alot of us thought it would be better to trade down from a 1st rounder to begin with. So if we got a #2 and #3, that would work. But I doubt that even happens or it probably would have already.

I hope this sends a message to both BM and McD. Brandon's best value is staying right here. Brandon can realize past actions need to be amended and he needs to put several productive seasons together to be an attractive target again, and McD can realize this team will be better with him, rather then some 3rd round pick.
