Shannon Sharpe "knows" 3 teams want WR Marshall

Former Broncos tight end and 2010 Hall of Fame finalist Shannon Sharpe believes there’s no way receiver Brandon Marshall will be back in Denver next season.

I don’t know how they mend this,” said Sharpe.  “Help me understand this: How can a guy catch 21 passes one week and then two weeks later he doesn’t even play?  Once you go there, once you break that communication, once you break that trust, I don’t know how you get that back.”
Sharpe takes it a step further, claiming he knows Marshall will have considerable value on the trade market, despite the receiver’s laundry list of off-field woes.
“I know personally there are three teams out there who are going to make a move for Brandon Marshall,” Sharpe said.  
Sharpe didn’t name his sources or say which teams are constructing a trade package.
Of late, Marshall has consistently indicated that he is willing to return to the Broncos, which can’t hurt his value or the Broncos’ potential trade compensation.  But it’s still hard to imagine any team being willing to surrender a first-round pick for the moody wideout, much less a first-rounder and a long-term contract.

    The Bengals are one of the three.

    To bad the Bears dont have anything to offer. Thank you very much Angelo. Idiot!

  3. jj jones says: Feb 5, 2010 10:27 AM

    Baltimore, Miami and who else?

  4. faulkn22 says: Feb 5, 2010 10:27 AM

    Ummm, yeah. The Cowboys traded a first and a third for Roy Williams just last season. I guarantee you there is a team out there willing to do that for Brandon Marshall, because he actually catches passes.

  5. jamesz23 says: Feb 5, 2010 10:29 AM

    Bears, Redskins, Ravens……….The Bears would have to convince them to take 2011 draft choices or maybe the rest of their picks this year.

  6. tomcous says: Feb 5, 2010 10:29 AM

    Redskins could easily offer a HIGH #2 – (plus) …
    They don’t seem to like to draft anyway … make it a Ricky Williams deal … all of their picks except #1 …

    Trade him to the Raiders so that JaBaMarcus can throw to him.

  10. milehiclown says: Feb 5, 2010 10:35 AM

    Ravens. Bucs. Giants.

  11. rjaxx says: Feb 5, 2010 10:37 AM

    Shannon Sharpe is great and all…. but to say he personally knows of three teams that are going to make a move for Marshall is like saying Emmitt Smith is going to win a spelling bee.

  12. Dirtybirds24 says: Feb 5, 2010 10:46 AM

    Bring him to Bmore…

  14. Vanessa says: Feb 5, 2010 10:52 AM

    I hope the Ravens are one of the teams! ! !

  15. GoCaps8 says: Feb 5, 2010 10:52 AM

    As long as the Redskins don’t use their #4 overall pick in a deal for Marshall, I’d love to have him here. I’d give up Moss and a 4th or Moss and Cooley for him.

  16. peskys_pole says: Feb 5, 2010 10:53 AM

    Yeah right!
    Like Shannon can even count to 3.
    1…..w……uhhh……ummmmm…fubba.wubba.dede.dubba..dada.doo.dedo!

    Shannon Sharpe reminds me of Mush Mouth from Fat Albert.
    Marshall would be a perfect fit for the ego stroking Redskins.

    Ravens. Bucs. Giants.
    why would the Giants trade for a WR? Is Brandon Marshall going to be playing LB or in the Secondary?

  19. DaDawg26 says: Feb 5, 2010 11:05 AM

    Cleveland is one of them. Denver, for some reason, reportedly wants Brady Quinn, as well as Josh Cribbs.
    Cleveland could keep Marshall, as the position is of need, or trade him for a 1st or a couple of 2nd’s

  20. hineswardcriesafterfumbling says: Feb 5, 2010 11:06 AM

    I’d love to see the bengals give their number 1 pick for marshall. Easily worth it. Marshall is a freak talent, and paired with nacho libre, they would certainly help the struggling passing attack. I’d much rather have Marshall than TO. Plus, according to steeler fans and haters everywhere, he would “fit in” with that team. Note to M. Brown: Make that trade.

  21. otis77 says: Feb 5, 2010 11:07 AM

    That’s because the Cowboys make, at best, questionable trades….all down hill since the H. Walker trade.

    Giants will take him, just keep doing radio interviews Osi.

  27. RaiderChile says: Feb 5, 2010 11:30 AM

    ONe team should be the Raiders.

  28. tap watters says: Feb 5, 2010 11:30 AM

    for the right price, i could see the Pats making a move. moss is declining, and could easily have worn out his welcome. time to pull a moss again, this time with marshall. they certainly have the ammo. unfortunately for them, i think there will be a couple other teams more interested, and more willing to pay. could easily see the skins landing him, especially since he was drafted under shanahan.

    So this is supposed to be a guessing game, well guess what, I’m a grow up no i’m not a a Jonas(BROTHER). I will go get a child to play this guessing game.I will be back in a few.

  32. GirthyOne says: Feb 5, 2010 11:36 AM

    Everyone can speculate, but all of it depends on what Denver wants. Roy Williams was trade 2 seasons ago and that was a total flop. Marshall also has off-field issues, as well has issues with his coaches, which Roy Williams did not.
    I don’t see Marshall drawing more than a 2nd and 4th/5th for what teams are willing to give up, while the Broncos will hold out for a 1st/3rd kind of deal.
    Any team with a QB who needs WR help is in play. Remember that Aquan Boldin is probably cheaper and has been better than Marshall. Look for teams to try and get Boldin for a 2nd and look for Denver to hold out for a 1st for too long. Also, don’t forget that Terrell Owens becomes a lot more attractive when you don’t have to give up picks for him.
    Rams, Bucs, Bills, Redskins, Raiders = no way will they give a high 1st.
    Dolphins = you see Tuna trading for a WR who is troubled?
    Ravens = Ozzie giving up a 1st? Not a chance.
    Giants = If they acquire anyone for picks it would be Boldin. They drafted Nicks and Steve Smith really stepped up.

  33. Texansin09 says: Feb 5, 2010 11:40 AM

    I know you all saw the Schaub to Marshall TD pass in the Pro-Bowl (A Great throw in coverage) Suzy Kolbren asked if Houston was a landing spot and he said, “They do call it Denver South down there, with a lot of Shanahans old guys down there” Numerous times throughout the game Schaub and Marshall were talking.
    What a Duo that would be… Andre Johnson and Brandon Marshall along with top 5 Tight End in football in Owen Daniels, with a RB in Steve Slaton who can catch the ball out of the backfield.
    Scary…..
    Come to Houston! We have a QB that can actually throw you the ball.

  34. rjgreen3 says: Feb 5, 2010 11:41 AM

    Troy Smith for Brandon Marshall! Ravens need #1 receiver and Smith wants out! Make the trade Ozzie so Smith can find out that he should have stayed put!

  35. FriedChicken says: Feb 5, 2010 11:47 AM

    I guess some people think that Shanny and Allen are not going to stop Snyder from continuing his old ways.

    WTF? Lots of teams would give up a 1st round for him. He’s in his prime and would probably be more of a sure shot than a 1st round WR

    Weren’t the Jets trying to work a trade earlier this year?

  40. indy12 says: Feb 5, 2010 12:27 PM

    Why would Washington be a consideration? I thought the Marshall/Shanahan relationship was non-existent and that Shanahan was considering cutting him just before he left Denver. I call this one doubtful.
    Cleveland? Is Mike Holmgren really going to take this guy in? Not his style. I don’t see it happening.

  41. Accordngs says: Feb 5, 2010 12:28 PM

    What’s wrong with everyone.
    Marshall is a RFA. That means the team can, probably will, tender him at a 1st and a 3rd round pick.
    So why would they even think about trading him for less than that. Would be stupid.
    Not too mention, since he’s a RFA the Broncos would have to first sign him to a contract THEN they would be able to trade him. You can’t trade a player you don’t have under contract. Dur. Amazing how this continues to go overlooked.

    shanny and allen not stop snyder from his old ways???
    shanny will be pushing for FA’s harder than snyder ever did

  45. PFTalktothehand says: Feb 5, 2010 12:58 PM

    You know all Charger fans want him traded out of the division. Or to the Raiders…which would essentially be the same thing. Where all players go to disappear and retire.

  46. 27Rice says: Feb 5, 2010 1:00 PM

    Roger Goodell: “The Baltimore Ravens have traded the #25 pick to the Denver Broncos , and with that 25th pick the Broncos have selected………………….(ahhhhh, who gives a crap after that?)”
    …….and Eisen, Faulk, Deion and the rest of them go nuts on the set trying to figure out what’s going on when Eisen hears in his ear piece that “in fact” the Ravens will receive Brandon Marshall for that pick.
    Welcome to B-More Brandon!

    Why is McDaniels so hell bent on proving that he’s the biggest dick in Denver? You can’t win by trading away Pro Bowl players and swapping future 1st rd. picks for role players (e.g. Alphonso Smith).

    But Denver doesn’t want him! You’re overlooking that fact. If they tender him and then someone DOESN’T make the deal for him (willing to give up a 1 and 3), then Denver is on the hook with him again! The Broncos would NOT HAVE TO sign him to a contract first. The interested team can sign Marshall to an offer sheet which Denver would then have to match or not match. They don’t want to get into that mess. Denver will allow him to work out a contract with his new team while they work on compensation from that team.

    “Troy Smith for Brandon Marshall! Ravens need #1 receiver and Smith wants out! Make the trade Ozzie so Smith can find out that he should have stayed put!”
    What?
    You can’t be serious? Sure a back-up QB who has never played for a pro bowl WR with three 100+ catch seasons in a row…..hmmmm……
    I think ol’ Ozzie might need to up the ante.

    Patriots had better be thinking about a Moss replacement.

  56. spliffbunker says: Feb 5, 2010 2:10 PM

    cant see McDaniels dealing with Washington…
    it looks like another offseason of fun here in Denver…last year a franchise talent at QB…this year a stud # 1 WR & a pass receiving TE with upside…a lot of teams could use Tony Scheffler even if the average fan doesnt know him…
    Peyton Hillis is worth trading for as well
    doesnt make sense to me to trade this kind of talent for draft picks when you are probably going to have to use those draft picks to try & replace them
    btw- it does not come across on TV but Shannon may be one of the funniest giys on the planet…i wish they taped him at practice in training camp & his wit is funny enough & evil enough he got something like 5 unsportsmanlike conduct penalties against Derrick Thomas on one drive…

  57. FireJerryJones says: Feb 5, 2010 2:15 PM

    KC needs him, but won’t trade within the division.
    Washington was on the radar in the Cutler deal… but other than draft picks, not much on the Deadskins roster to trade for…
    Patriots seem like a logical choice. Wonder if Bill trades Moss and a high pick for Marshall.
    Cowboys couldn’t make a deal because of the size of Roy Williams’ contract. What idiot would take that on in a trade?

  58. slipkid says: Feb 5, 2010 2:45 PM

    i have always thought Shannon was one hell of an athlete, ever since he won the Triple Crown.

    That’s not true. Denver never said they didn’t want him. McDaniels said the exact opposite during his end of the year press conference. He also said he was going to hold off on anything that way all sides could cool down emotionally. Which appears to be happening.
    If Denver tenders him and no one offers anything on it there is no reason why Denver wouldn’t resign him. Denver DOES want him. Just like when Marshall tried to get out last offseason, Denver forced him to stay because they DO want him.
    No team gives away a great player for nothing. Marshall is arguably a top 5 WR in the NFL.
    Look what Denver did with Cutler. They got (2) 1st round picks, a 3rd round pick and Orton for a QB that everyone and their mom knew was leaving. They would never just let a guy like this go for a 2nd round pick.
    Expect Denver to get compensated well or resign him and force a team to trade.
    If you believe otherwise stop listening to the idiots on ESPN/NFLN who tell you it can’t happen. They also said there was no way he played for Denver in 2009/10 season.

    Duh! OF COURSE the Broncos are going to say they want him! If they come right and say they don’t, then what bargaining power do they have in a trade? Marshall’s value would go down. They want the most they can get for him, so of course they are going to “act” like they want him. C’mon man……….the guy goes from catching 20+ balls one week and then gets suspended the next because of some injury issue thing. Give me a break. Marshall has played his last game in Denver.

  61. FumbleNuts says: Feb 6, 2010 12:15 PM

    The Chicago Bears would be a GREAT fit for Marshall.
