Default Marshall for B. Quinn in the works?

per espn insider

looks like a some guys random idea.

We're still in the preliminary -- mostly speculative -- stages of the Brandon Marshall sweepstakes. Here's what we know: he's all but done for in Denver, as we continue to read things like this from Mike Klis of the Denver Post: "Today most likely is goodbye to All Things Brandon Marshall."
OK, but where does he wind up? Any team could use a player as talented on the field as Marshall, but not every team wants to deal with the possibility of his off-the-field issues. We've speculated that the Pats and Cowboys would be two teams on the cusp of Super Bowl runs who might take a shot, and on Sunday, Klis added the Cleveland Browns to the mix. Even more intriguing, Klis thinks that the trade could kill two birds with one stone: get rid of Marshall, and get a QB back, as he thinks the Browns could be interested in swapping Brady Quinn.
While all of the trade scenarios have varying degrees of likelihood, NFL Insider Adam Schefter emailed in on Friday morning with the reason why we can all-but-eliminate certain teams from the rumor mill

Destinations for Brandon
  • The first speculation was that Marshall would be headed to the Seahawks or the Redskins, via two of our NFL Nation bloggers.
  • Cincinnati has the need for a second WR to go along with Chad Ochocinco, but we're not sure the Bengals would want another head case.
  • The Cowboys need a legitimate No. 1 WR and Jerry Jones would have no problem forking out cash for a new deal to Marshall.
  • What about the Pats? Randy Moss isn't getting any younger, and Wes Welker might be a shell of his former self after shredding his knee.
  • Dave Krieger of the Denver Post speculated on some new spots: the Ravens, Dolphins and Cardinals.

The insider story is based upon this http://www.denverpost.com/premium/broncos/ci_14303459 piece by Klis



But Adam Schefter wrote

Return package too much for Brandon
"Forget all the Rams-Bucs-Brandon Marshall trade talk. Barring the unforseen, it will not happen. The Broncos are going to put a high tender on Marshall -- probably a first- and third-round draft choice -- so any team that signs the Pro Bowl wide receiver will have to compensate Denver with the terms that the Broncos dictate. There's no chance the Rams are giving up the first pick in the draft for Brandon Marshall. There's no chance the Buccaneers are giving up the third pick in the draft for Marshall. Now if either of these teams can acquire another first-round pick later in the draft that it could trade to Denver, then maybe something could get done. But the chances of that happening are a longshot, at best. So when Marshall trade rumors continue to circulate -- and they should, Denver will look to trade him -- consider where the potential trade partner is drafting. If it's a high first-round pick, forget it; the trade is not happening."

Cleveland has the 38th pick as well.

Marshall for Quinn and that would be okay if they can't pry that 7 pick off Cleveland.

Hell, throw in Orton too.

I think Quinn would be a good fit in this system, good mobility bigger, and has a strong arm...I really believe that McD getting this kid would be huge for us...but I do agree we better be getting that 38th pick

This is the guy that I wanted last year when all this shiat went down...I would be all for it.

I still say Miami would be the best trade target.

And 2 3rds (Jets for Bray).

Quinn for Marshall straight up is terrible.

Quinn, a 2nd, and a 3rd for Marshall is like the Cutler trade. Sucks it came to that, but the value isn't bad.

Just saw that. Cleveland is sitting on 2 3rds as well.

Hmmm...

Quinn would be a much better back-up than Simms, and he's still got the potential to be a good QB one day IMO.

Maybe if they give us their second (38th overall) and Quinn?

I know McDaniels was rumoured to like Quinn last offseason, and it has to be tempting for him to send Brandon to a ****hole like Cleveland where he'll almost certainly be on a losing team for the next 5 or 6 years.

We're not going to get what we think for BMarsh. The Broncos are in a bad spot now. They hold the cards but they don't want BMarsh back in Denver and therefore will take less for him. No matter how good you think McD is, he can't win without talent.

He will not be the back up if we make this trade

That's not what he thinks.

He attacks defenders who try to tackle him ... Reminds me of a TE once his has the ball.



Mcasshat tho don't need talent with his vastly superior scheme ...

not for Marshall. Marshall is worth a ton more than what Brady Quinn brings.

Yes he will, at least initially.

Orton is going to be the starter next year, I figure he gets a RFA tag and next year then becomes his sink or swim season.

Quinn will be the insurance policy who'll be there to put pressure on Orton and try to win the starting gig in time.

If Orton bombs next year, Quinn gets his shot either late in the year or in 2011.
