Default Future of Brandon Marshall

I am curious to know what people think will be the future of Brandon Marshall.

Poll to come. Please put a description if you select other. If you think he leaves, put where you think he'll end up, just for fun.

even though everyone says hes gone, its too hard to tell. mcdaniels isnt dumb and wont just give him away, but i dont think hes gonna fetch the type of value we are looking for either, in which case mcdaniels holds onto him.

I believe he'll be tendered at a 1st and a 3rd and will wind up settling for that offer to stay in Denver just as Braylon Edwards already has (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...e-year-tender/).

Considering the CBA uncertainity and Marshall's off-field history, unless the Broncos absolutly want to unload Marshall, I just don't see the value being there to trade him. John Clayton reported on this (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/column...ohn&id=4841466), that most of these RFAs might wind up coming back to their teams on tenders. Could the owners have set it up that way? Marshall is an interesting case because of his situation, but the fact the guy was caught on camera dogging it practice and stayed on the team shows that anything can happen in the NFL so I wouldn't be shocked in the least if Marshall is back next year, and from the sounds of it - neither woukd he: (http://www.fm1043thefan.com/channels...spx?ID=1181090).

I think he winds up in Baltimore, Cincy, Washington, Dallas or Chicago. (in that order). I would put Chicago higher on that list but they don't have much in terms of draft picks having already traded their 1st and 2nd this year. Dallas is a W.A.G. based on Jones' propensity to spend and have marquee players. Not sure they actually "need" him.

The ESPN blogger for the NFC West suggested Seattle because they have 2 #1s next year, but I don't see how a team that has recently spent huge $$$ on Burleson, Housh, and Branch wants another big money player at that position.

The reason I like Baltimore as the favorite is that a) there is an obvious need, especially if Mason retires b) they are close to being an elite team and c) they have a strong locker room. I think the last point speaks to the idea that they won't be intimidated by Brandon's act.

You raise excellent points. And if there weren't so much discontent (seemingly anyway) between Brandon and the Broncos Organization at large, I think I would agree with this assessment. The other difference between Brandon and Braylon is that Brandon at least stepped on the field and produced this year (making the Pro Bowl).

But it certainly is an interesting dilemma because that price tag is sooo heavy to get him away from Denver.

you link kind of blows up in your face ...

That approach is a little easier for Edwards to adopt because he's already pocketed one huge contract. Players with smaller career earnings may not embrace the realities of the uncapped world so enthusiastically.

listening to the interview with Marshall i didn't hear any "All I care about is the money" talk and it sounded like McD needs to get his communication skills under control

brandon has said several times its not the city, its his contract hes unhappy with. thats kind of the problem in the NFL, a player is unhappy making 2.3 million dollars a year. more then most people will ever make in their lifetime.

Can you franchise a RFA? If so, that's a possibility.

that means nothing.

simple fact is he is at the very least in the top 5 at his position and I don't recall the exact number but his paid outside of the top 25 or somewhere around there. It's what the market dictates not what we think he should be happy with.

Why would you? If you franchise him you have to give him top 5 money, like 10M a year. If you tender him you only have to give him the $3M.

Seems to me you'd only do one or the other.

Fool? really ..... like I said if the market dictates it they deserve it.

You think baseball, a much less phyical with longer lifespan sport should have players that get 150MM in for sure money the market decides what their worth. So fool ... I'd like to see you turn down your next raise because you should be happy making what you make. If you can live off of 15,000 a year should you just stop their?

Bottom line is they don't play for fun they play for money ....... they ALL do.

If you do what is fair in the first place you don't have all this BS in the first place pay players early if the play and heath show them to be long term answers. this makes them way cheaper to to resign . two years ago both would of cost way less to lock up for long term .

Marshall was right about wanting more for what he did here .

God I hope so... I don't want to think of what happens if Marshall has to play another season for under $3mil.

Dude might punt a football right into Bowlen's face, then beat Annebel for good measure.

In principal I agree with the idea that you lock up good players early -- then there is an incentive for them to take a home town deal as well. That said, Brandon's attitude and off the field problems have been a monkey wrench in the viability of that plan.
