Frankly, we find it hard to believe that Marshall is facing money troubles, if in fact he is (and we're not reporting that he is -- we're only saying that some league insiders think that he is). After pocketing a signing bonus of $420,000 in 2006, Marshall earned a base salary of $275,000 as a rookie, a base salary of $360,000 in 2007, and a base salary of $445,000 in 2008 (less two game checks, one for a suspension and one for a fine). Also, because of his stellar performances to date in his career, escalators in Marshall's rookie deal have pushed his 2009 salary to $2.198 million."

That's not really that much money, when you consider the lifestyle he's probably trying to maintain.

I'd actually be kind of surprised if he was flush with cash, at this point.

Raise your hand if you'd be surprised if this turned out to be true.

And then to think there's a possibility that he'd be stupid enough not to shut up and show up so he can get paid.

I love BM on the field so I really, truly hope that somehow this works out. But I think it's up to BM for that to happen.

So, your using the NBA excuse for needing more money, bigger contracts? I forget the NBA player who was quoted as saying something along the lines of "yah, we make a lot of money, but we spend a lot of money too."

Ohh Really? And who's problem is that?

How broke are you when you are staring down the business end of a 2 million dollar salary, get a few more credit cards to pay for your pizza and gas that way.

Um, who's defending it?

Although, if you really want me to defend it, I will. It's a free market. He should be able to get whatever he can get. What he does with it after that is his business. But if you want me to argue he was underpaid at $445K in 2008 - okay. He definitely was.

I agree he's underpaid for his football production. However, if the guy can't keep himself out of trouble off the field, and if he's blowing what "little" money he has already made, then too bad.

The only thing stopping BMarsh for getting a huge contract is BMarsh.

Think about all the jack he has paid lawyers over the years to get him out of his messes.

This is one of the better comments I've read on the Mane recently.

I don't disagree with any of that. His contract isn't going to be determined solely on the number of catches and TDs he has. There's too much money involved to not consider the peripheral stuff that he does. But again, the biggest factor will be the willingness of some sap to pay him.

The point I was making is that a half million dollars a year doesn't go too far, when you're trying to compete spending-wise with a bunch of people making far more than that.

He's hoping the Broncos bail him out of his stupidity...
He's used to be bailed out of trouble, so this doesn't surprise me at bit...

IF he is broke then we can really play hardball. He misses camp we can fine the **** out of him. Tell him we will not trade you for anything less then a first round pick, and a 3rd round pick. If we are going to lose our stars we have to get multiple picks because we all know you often need 2-3 picks trying to fix just one position.

Denver won't get multiple picks unless someone maybe dumps a 2nd and a 4th or something.
