He deserves it and I hope he realizes that. He's making that contract he wants so badly smaller and smaller. Grow up Brandon.

For his punt and other acts of misbehavior, the Broncos have given receiver Brandon Marshall the boot.

The Broncos have suspended Marshall for conduct detrimental to the team. Marshall was informed of the suspension by coach Josh McDaniels this morning. McDaniels informed the rest of the players at a team meeting Friday morning.

Marshall’s apology Thursday night on ESPN was too late. The punishment stems from Marshall’s shameful display of unprofessionalism during practice Wednesday. He was lackadaisical during individual running drills. He didn’t run routes or catch passes during another position drill, instead choosing to hold a dummy and knocking the receivers as they came off the line.

A KMGH-7 video caught Marshall punting the ball away after one drill instead of handing it to a ball boy, as the players are told.

Marshall was held out of practice Wednesday, but that was before the Broncos were aware of the magnitude of his insubordination.

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels decided to suspend Marshall Friday morning. The length of the suspension is not known although Marshall is not expected to play in the Broncos’ next preseason game Sunday night against the Chicago Bears and his former quarterback, Jay Cutler.

Marshall caught 206 passes the previous two seasons for the Broncos, enough production for him to request a contract extension that has one year and $2.198 million remaining. He has twice requested a trade.

Perhaps realizing the circulating video of his misconduct could all but kill his ability to get traded, Marshall went on ESPN’s NFL Live show at 10:42 p.m. MST to explain his actions.

“”Me punting the ball was definitely frustration,” Marshall said. “”It was an error in judgment. There was a lot of frustration (Wednesday) coming out of a meeting.”

McDaniels would not explain the reason behind Marshall’s absence from practice Thursday.

If he's truly sorry for his behavior, which I doubt, then he'll come back from this suspension with a different view of the situation. If he's still being a cock, then hopefully someone will tell him he's ruining his young career and, either way, he needs to shape up.

This is the only thing the Broncos could do. They can't let a player get away with this ****. Brandon is going to lose some $$ and he has no-one to blame but himself. This will likely send him on some crazy rage, I have my doubts he can make it 1 month without getting in some sort of legal trouble.

What would the Patriots do?

They'd suspend him, too.

The Pats have won 3 Super Bowls and been to 4 this decade. I don't mind doing what they would do if the result is a better team.

Here is my question - how does this move relate to the TO and Keyshawn suspensions? Weren't they also suspended without pay but the union fought it?

"Suspension on Marshall is for rest of preaseason. If he behaves during that time, Broncos can bring him back for regular-season opener."

What does the suspension constitute exactly? Does he go without pay? Is he allowed to utilize facilities? Is he held out of practice and games? Does he go home?

Broncos can't send Marshall home with pay

Posted by Mike Florio on August 28, 2009 8:41 AM ET
Some of you have suggested that the Denver Broncos should take a page from the Jon Gruden/Andy Reid playbook and send disgruntled receiver Brandon Marshall home, with pay.

Gruden did just that with receiver Keyshawn Johnson during the 2003 season, giving Keyshawn an extended vacation after repeated clashes between player and coach.

Two years later, the Eagles followed a four-game unpaid suspension of receiver Terrell Owens with a suspension for the rest of the year, with pay.

Though Keyshawn didn't fight his paid vacation, the grievance filed by Owens included an attempt to force the Eagles either to let Owens back in the building or cut him loose.

The effort failed.

And so, when it was time to work out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement after the 2005 season, the NFL Players Association slipped into the new deal language prohibiting teams from sending players home with pay.

Here's the relevant language from the provision in the current labor contract permitting maximum discipline of a four-game suspension without pay: "This maximum applies without limitation to any deactivation of a player in response to player conduct (other than a deactivation in response to a player's on-field playing ability), and any such deactivation, even with pay, shall be considered discipline subject to the limits set forth in this section. The Non-Injury Grievance Arbitrator's decision in Terrell Owens (Nov. 23, 2005) is thus expressly overruled as to any Club decision to deactivate a player in response to the player's conduct."

So while the Broncos can sit Marshall down for maximum suspensions of four games at a time in response to conduct detrimental to the team, the Broncos cannot pay him to stay out of their hair.
