That said there is no way that Brandon Marshall would be paid top 3 WR money?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not upset that we didn't give him that huge contract, but I never thought for a second that someone wouldn't step up with that kind of $$$.

So, who here was surprised he got the $?

I thought and argued he was a top 2 WR but I am over it. WR's are a luxury, in the physical team 1st offense mCd wants to run.

Guys that can block down field and run comeback routes are the guys he wants. Not the streaking downfield blazers.

I'm shocked. Really. Handing Marshall a check for $24 million and a job near South Beach? I'll be shocked if he doesn't go a year down there without getting an 8 game suspension.

It is going to be interesting seeing if he can stay out of trouble down there.

I don't think many people said he couldn't find a team dumb enough to pay it.

The argument was over whether or not he was worth it.

Clearly, Broncos fans on this board feel he was not.

The Dolphins will find that out soon, Give it time. ****, he'll be smacking up a b**** before the end of the season.

When Larry Fitzgerald worked out with Bmarsh last year and called him a "specimen", when Asomugha said this year that Brandon is the toughest receiver he has ever had to tackle and, with 3x100 yard seasons under his belt at such a young age, NO FRIGGEN WAY am I surprised he will be paid as #1 receiver in the NFL. I'm happy that he cleaned up his off-field issues this past year, mentored his cousin and got married. I wish him the best. It's crystal clear he was severely underpaid in Denver.

Count me as surprised not at the huge contract but at the huge amount of up front money.

As with all things in life you have to take a risk. Miami sure is doing that with Marshall.

They seemed to find their new franchise QB last year and with someone who is as big a receiving threat as Marshall is Brown should get some bigger runs and have to take less pounding. I was surprised they gave up on a #1 pick to trade for a #4 with off field issues but Marshall is a top 3 WR and has the check to prove it.

They've all got something better to do. I can't tell you how many posts I've read that someone on the OM said Brandon was getting a dose of reality and that nobody wanted him or would put up with (or put out) for his shenanigans.

Epic.

As I understand it...He's the highest paid WR ever.

Sad that Denver lost him.

I agree his stats and ability are tops in the league. I just didn't think a team would give that much up front with his history. Congrats to him hope he makes the best of it.

I'll admit I'm surprised at the size of the contract. It reflects his value as a football player but certainly not the risk. But at the same time, where are all the people who thought teams would be lining up to trade a
first round pick or better for him?

I think many more teams would have taken a shot at him during or right before the draft and for that reason Miami knocked it out of the park now. I guess we'll never know. I also agree with some "experts" that think McD didn't sell it very well.

That will make the trade much better for you to swallow.
The fact is, the guy is now happy he's getting paid as the highest paid WR in NFL history.
His production on the field next year is going to make you puke in anger...

considering clauses can be put in a contract to address "off-field" problems,it was no surprise that he got paid. I said it quite a few times,if we didn't pay him big someoneelse would.

The amount of guaranteed cash he received really is mind blowing. When you consider that the 4 year extension makes his $2.5M base for this year guaranteed as well he's looking at $26.5M, or just over 50% of the biggest WR contract in NFL history, already guaranteed to him.

I'm just glad it isn't the Broncos taking the risk. Maybe he'll be a model citizen in Miami, but he didn't want to be in Denver and for whatever reason he couldn't control himself while playing here. Its a shame but McDaniels once again took a bad situation and made the best of it.

Hell Yeaaaaaaaah. I ****ing love it when one of my favorite teams gets BEAST like production on a rookie contract and then maximizes the trade value before their FA year while another conference team picks up the tab on said players "comfort" contract.

Thank you B-Marsh for your years of GREAT production on the cheap. Glad you got your cash bro....You earned it!

We're talking Bill Parcells here. I'm pretty sure he's aware of the risks and I wouldn't be surprised if he has all of his bases covered...

Yep Parcels has a taste for risk. Its just that Miami came out of nowhere and gave such a huge deal. Thats why I am surprised.

Again kudos to Brandon for getting paid after all the off field issues he has had. And if he toes the line and gets better than kudos to Miami for taking a chance.

I think people were saying he wouldn't get that money from us. There weren' many people saying no one would pay him.

This simply isn't true. Miami is now out any bonus money that the have paid Marshall even if he is suspended before the season starts. They MAY be able to recoup some of it, but not very much of it. Vick only had to pay back $3 million of his $20 million signing bonus to Atlanta and he was using that money to bankroll an illegal dogfighting ring.

I guess maybe something has changed since the CBA expired, but before that the team had no option to recoup bonus money after it had been paid.
