With Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall suspended until September 6 and apparently not in jeopardy of having to cough up a fine in the amount of one or more regular-season game checks, Marshall isn’t expected to file a grievance challenging the suspension, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.
Marshall had the right to challenge the discipline. As one source opined to us earlier today, Marshall wouldn’t have had “a leg to stand on” if he had opted to fight it, given the video evidence of his behavior at practice on Wednesday.
He also has the right to challenge any further discipline that might be imposed, if he doesn’t clean up his act.
And Marshall needs to clean up his act. He still has no leverage, and his behavior is only scaring off whatever potential suitors might have been out there.
Here’s how Peter King put it on his Twitter page, and we’ll quote him since we fully support the liberal use of the term “ass” by all members of the sports media: “Marshall stuns me with his lack of intelligence,” King says. “He think he ups his chance to get dealt by acting like an ass.”
