He doesn't remember.

We don't know, but I do not understand why Shanny would promise Marshall anything since he refused to re-work a deal for Clinton Portis. Portis was no where near the character risk that Marshall is.

It is commendable that we have a kind-hearted owner who sincerely wants what is best for his employees but he needs to SHUTUP and leave the football business to professionals. I really believe that this firestorm could have been mitigated...or at least reduced if our immature baby of a player wasn't given mixed messages.
Agreed. Bowlen shouldn't make promises that his HC/GM doesn't agree with.

We NEED a real GM.
I may be in the minority, but I don't agree with this yet. Patriots don't have one; Detroit did and it actually hurt them.
