Default Denver Post : Broncos WR Marshalll to talk contract with Seahawks today

Broncos WR Marshalll to talk contract with Seahawks today


By Mike Klis
The Denver Post

Posted: 03/06/2010 01:00:00 AM MST




In Seattle, where Brandon Marshall may soon be playing, he would have old friends and no more enemies.

In Denver, Marshall could leave behind the bittersweet start to his NFL career. The star receiver can move beyond his run-ins with coaches and girlfriends and nightclub thugs. He can wipe away his two suspensions in two years and numerous courtroom appearances in three years, most recently as a star witness in the murder trial of former teammate Darrent Williams.

Marshall can hang on to those three consecutive 100-catch seasons and numerous awe-inspiring plays if he wishes. But if all goes well during his visit today as a restricted free agent in the faraway, oft-drizzly city of Seattle, the most talented, and troubled, receiver in Broncos history will become a handsomely paid Seahawk.

That groan you heard was electronically delivered from the checking account of Harvey Steinberg, Marshall's Denver-based attorney.

As Marshall leaves Denver today for an opportunity elsewhere, the Broncos made a series of practical moves to solidify the middle of their fronts Friday. The team agreed in principle on a five-year contract with former University of Colorado and Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Justin Bannan, who becomes the Broncos' new starting nose tackle.

"He's excited about it," said Tom Mills, Bannan's Boulder-based agent. "He played college here and really enjoyed his visit with the team (Friday)."

"Justin will fit into our scheme very well," Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said in a statement.

And the Broncos were also close to signing former Miami and Cleveland center Rex Hadnot.

That's 630 combined pounds at the middle positions of the line of scrimmage.

The Broncos also strengthened their lone weak spot in their secondary when they signed former Miami Dolphins nickel back Nathan Jones.

"He makes plays on defense and has been a core contributor on special teams," Broncos general manager Brian Xanders said.

Yet, as often happened since the Broncos drafted Marshall four years ago, the team's positive developments were overshadowed by the somber circumstance surrounding the gifted playmaker.

For myriad reasons, Marshall would like to move on. His last three seasons have been both highly productive and disruptive. He held out from the team's offseason workouts last season and issued a trade request.

This time, the Broncos may be getting close to accommodating Marshall's desire to leave. First, the team slapped a fairly inviting, first-round tender on Marshall, who officially became a restricted free agent Thursday.

That means for a team to sign away Marshall, it would have to surrender a first-round draft pick to the Broncos unless the two sides agree on alternative compensation.

The Seahawks not only have the financial wherewithal to submit an attractive contract proposal to induce Marshall into signing an offer sheet, they have two first-round draft picks No. 6 and 14 overall.

Seattle's No. 14 pick was acquired from the Broncos during the 2009 draft in a deal that enabled Denver to move up and select defensive back Alphonso Smith early in the second round.

Although at least one other team has expressed serious interest in Marshall, Seattle would is a logical fit in part because former Broncos play-caller Jeremy Bates and former receivers coach Jedd Fisch are now with the Seahawks. Marshall was a big fan of both coaches in 2008 when he had 104 catches in 15 games.

The Broncos did offer Marshall a multiyear contract last summer worth approximately $9.5 million a season, according to two NFL sources.

Marshall rejected the proposal because the contract structure had relatively little money upfront, and also because the receiver preferred to play elsewhere.

Seattle may be where.

Marshall just wants out, I really think he is afraid of those gang members coming after him, and honestly I can't blame him.

I Hate Mcd.
It seems to me that he is fond of draft picks.
Unfortunately, he doesn't pick good player's in the draft.
I am waiting for the day when bowlen fires him.

The only good thing he did is to trade Cutler.

I disagree with your stance, but its refreshing to see someone dislike McDaniels for his other moves and not for trading Cutler. 95% of the people hating on McD are still doing so because they are butt hurt over Cutler. Even after Cutler's atrocious season they are still in denial about it. I can respect an opinion where he is disliked strictly for his other moves.

The two things that piss me off most about McD haters are 1.) whining about the Cutler trade and 2.) whining about not playing Hillis.

I'm pretty high on Ayers on Moreno. I also liked what I saw in Bruton/McBath.

I don't expect draft picks to set the world on fire in their first year. For his part, Ayers is ahead of most rookie OLB's in a 3-4 system. He's miles ahead of Spencer, for example.

Oh my god, you're a ****ing idiot.

Who isn't "fond of" draft picks? That's how you build your team, stupid.

You've seen him draft ONE year, and suddenly "he doesn't pick good player's in the draft." What an effing retard. ONE YEAR IS NOT A TREND. You cannot evaluate someone's talent based on one year.

How much do you know about football?

I don't like Cutler.To me, he is the cancer and will ruin the team.
Glad that Mcd realized this and traded him.
QB is the position that needs leadership and cutler lacks that.

The problem i have with Mcd is that he expects all player's attitude to be like Royal, Bailey etc.
Very few have that in today's NFL.
If he keeps looking to trade player's like Marshall, we will not have good player's in the end.

Mcd is suited to coach College player's..Bowlen gave chance to him soon.

Marshall is a great player but he doesn't want to be in Denver and he's a constant distraction. People need to come to grips with the fact that the best move for both Marshall and the organization is that he moves on.

100% correct. I'll be cheering for Marshall to get his money and just play football. I think he will and I think he'll grow up. But it's not going to be in Denver, and it has nothing to do with McD. It's about Brandon and it always has been.

As soon as we trade Dumervil or Bailey, you come back and let us know, K? Otherwise you're operating in fantasyland.

Yes because Doom and Champ have expressed an interest in getting out, have lots of off field baggage, and are constant distractions just like Marshall. Good comparisons.

Considering we all talked about it last summer, I'm gonna guess no that it's not some PR bull****. That's not a new revelation that Marshall was offered a contract last summer with little guaranteed money.

Wrong. It's all about the guaranteed money and the contract offer didn't include very much of it.

Marshall is one of my favorite players but it is time for him to go. It would be dissapointing if it is for somthing less than the #14 pick though.

For those that are upset about McD dimantling this roster let's remember we wern't exctly a dynasty when he came in.

True atleast we won't have to worry about losing any star players after this year. They obviously are not willing to pay for star talent or can't. Dumerville will be gone next year and as soon as someone performs well enough to earn a high payout they will be gone to. It's fun being an NFL farm team.
