Amid rumors that the Broncos are talking to one or more teams regarding a possible trade for receiver Brandon Marshall, Denver coach Josh McDaniels said Wednesday that there have been no such communications.
“There is no discussions whatsoever taking place between Denver Broncos and any team in the National Football League regarding Brandon Marshall,” McDaniels said, per the Denver Post. “We’re looking forward to having Brandon back on the 6th of September and starting our [season-opening] preparation with him.”
Newsday has reported that the Jets are seriously considering a trade for Marshall. The Broncos reportedly are monitoring the Jets’ public comments for evidence of potential tampering.
We’ve gotten mixed indications of late as to whether Marshall is available. Two teams that would be regarded as candidates for Marshall’s services had not heard from the Broncos, as of a few days ago. Other sources expressed confidence that the Broncos have been quietly shopping the fourth-year wideout.
