Default Marshall expected to be traded after March 5

According to the Denver Post, Brandon Marshall is expected to be traded shortly after NFL free agency opens on March 5.

The Broncos' leverage is somewhat damaged after a Week 17 blowout between Marshall and coach Josh McDaniels. Throw in Marshall's major character concerns, and the team will have trouble getting anywhere close to full value for their restricted free agent. Marshall isn't talking during this week's Pro Bowl practices, saying he's "had enough publicity." Smart.

Look who's not talking: Marshall mum on future

By Mike Klis
The Denver Post
Posted: 01/28/2010 01:00:00 AM MST
— In what are most likely his final days of playing football while wearing a Broncos helmet, wide receiver Brandon Marshall is healthy and happy.
And conspicuously quiet.
During the AFC Pro Bowl team's first practice Wednesday at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Marshall ran a few patterns at top speed, cut sharply on the artificial surface and showed no ill effects from the bum hamstring that brought on a controversial and premature end to his 2009 season.
After the practice, Marshall was pleasant and conversational, until it was time to speak on the record.
"I'm not talking," he said. "I've had enough publicity."
Marshall was benched by Broncos coach Josh McDaniels the Friday before Denver's final game of the season, essentially for punitive, not injury-related, reasons.
The Broncos are expected to trade Marshall soon after March 5, when the NFL's trading and free-agency period opens.

i've listened to plenty of people talk about it on the radio from the post, and they are saying its pretty much a done deal, and that he is going to be traded and denver has had enough of Brandon Marshall. hopefully this doesn't mean we will just give him away, but i think there will be several teams willing to give up a 1st or 2nd to grab him.

I like that, so he will be traded after trades are allowed again, that does seem to make a bit of sense and be entirely redundant information since there is no way he could be traded before the 5th.

It would be a huge mistake to trade him before you let him sniff around in free agency, unless you get more than the 1st and 3rd.

absolutely.

i will absically gaurantee mcdaniels does the same thing he did with cutler, when he set the bidding at 2 first round picks. from there, whoever creates best deal wins.

marshall starts at a 1st and maybe a 4th (where we drafted him).

It sounds like our new P.R. guy is starting to float ideas in the press prior to them happening. Not a new idea - althought this is the most definitive statement yet.

Whether we want him or not, I say we set the high tender on him and let him work out his own deal. Hello 1st and 3rd

There is probably some truth to that...

As big of a headache as Marshal is just as as productive on the field...Lets hope for the best here.

But you're guaranteed the 1st and the 3rd if a team just signs him away.

The only scenario where a trade makes sense is if you trade him to a team with a high 1st rounder as opposed to losing him to a team with a low 1st rounder plus a low 3rd. So, basically, a trade only makes sense if the 1st and 3rd scares everyone off, and you won't know that until the FA period plays out.

That is what I am saying....

If Denver trades him for a 2nd, we are the dumbest team in the NFL.

This is what I would do....

Tender him for the high tender of a first and a 3rd. Wait for him to work out a deal with a team, and when a team signs him to an offer sheet and sets the contract amount, I start shopping him to other teams in the attempt to get more. If we get offered more than a 1st and a 3rd then we match and then trade him to that team. Brandon might not like it, but Denver holds the cards here.

Frankly, I'd rather see him clean up the BS and stay. The dude has rare talent. But if there is no alternative, I'd trade him straight up for the pick that gets us Iaputi or Dan Williams.

This should really help with that goal of getting more talented. I know I always think you need to get rid of some of your most talented players to accomplish that....

As for his hammy, he had already said he could have played week 17. Weird that people find it suprising he can play now....

I hate McDaniels the GM.

no, it didnt.

per chris mortenson, april 2 2009

... the Broncos have informed all interested teams that they want at least two first-round picks for Cutler and getting a quarterback in exchange is not a necessity, Mortensen reports. A team source said it was possible Cutler could be traded as soon as Friday.

If only it were so simple, jhns. I don't think too many people want to get rid of him. I sure don't, he's probably my favorite player. But do you hand $20 million guaranteed to a guy who's had serious off field issues and basically quit on the team in the last week of the season? Do you reward only the on field performance and ignore the antics and insubordination? Agree 100% it's going to be extremely difficult to replace the talent and production. But at the same time you can't have a guy submarining the locker room. The coaches and FO know a lot more about the overall situation than we do. All we can do is hope they do the best thing for the team.
