Default From PFT: Rumors swirling of BMarsh to Baltimore

RUMORS FLY OF BRANDON MARSHALL TO BALTIMORE
Posted by Mike Florio on June 15, 2009, 6:47 p.m.
As storm clouds gather (again) in Denver between the Broncos and a high profile offensive player, rumors are flying in some circles that Marshall could land in Baltimore.

Though the obvious destination would be Chicago, where Marshallís former quarterback now resides, the Ravens have at least explored the possibility of adding a high-impact wideout during the offseason. The Bears have yet to do so. (Then again, maybe Cutler gave them a headís up about Marshall.).

Adam Schefter reported earlier today that Marshall has asked to be traded.

Marshall likely would command at least a first-round and a third-round draft pick, due to the trade that sent Roy Williams from the Lions to the Cowboys last year.

The move also would require a contract worth $9 million or more per year.

So it would be a huge deal for anyone to do a deal for Marshall, especially in light of his past legal troubles.

PFT doesn't know what the hell they are talking about HOWEVER, if we can get a 1st and 3rd for the domestic abuser, I would be on board with this. In fact, I think it would be the first thing McNugget/Zanders and Bowlen have done right with the previous regimes personnel.

Just heard Doug Gottlieb comment on the situation and then John Clayton came on the show later.

Gottlieb said the Bronco FO's response to Brandon should simply be: NO. Denver doesn't need to trade him and shouldn't. Brandon has little leverage and will be forced to cooperate and play when the fines start hitting. Many players have wanted out, not gotten their way, and then things have worked out fine. He then made an analogy to Kobe, who wanted out of L.A. a few years ago. Things worked out pretty well there.

John Clayton mentioned Marshall's two beefs: first with the medical/training staff, second his contract. He commented that Denver had one of the best training staffs in the league, and said with his legal and injury troubles Marshall isn't in a good position to demand a big contract. He also said in his current situation that nobody would likely give up a first round pick for him. He said the Broncos will not, and have no intention to, trade Marshall.

If the Front Office has said they won't trade him, then he's already gone.

Our front office scored well in the Cutler trade. But, Marshall isn't just a head-case like Cutler... he's got major, major risks attached.

Some team could trade a 1st rounder for him, and the dude could be in a slap-fight with some woman the week later, and out for the season.

It's possible, although I'm generally not the type to hate on "journalists" and "analysts" just because I don't agree with them. Regardless, I don't think he said anything here that doesn't echo what most media wouldn't agree with. The Broncos are in the driver's seat here unless they're stupid enough to relinquish it.

There is no reason to give him an insane contract at the moment.

He is not gonna sit out the whole season, he will show up when he starts losing his $, and he will play.

If he wants to leave after the season is over, or if Denver has no intentions of giving him a big contract, then just put a 1st and 3rd round tender on him.

Im not worried about this, this stuff happens all the time

At least he isnt mad at the coaches
