In theory, a public relations firm should be able to represent a client’s interests in a clear, positive manner.
Here is the statement Brandon Marshall’s P.R. firm EAG released Friday night to Josina Anderson of KDVR in Denver:
“Brandon Marshall is continuing to work out and progress this offseason,
and is hopeful that wherever he lands that it will be the right place.
Additionally, if it were true that a contract extension commensurate
with Marshall’s skills was actually offered, there would be no question
as to what team Marshall would be staying with at this time.”
Luckily, we have our shoddy P.R. firm translator nearby. It spit this out:
“Brandon Marshall wants a lot of money. It’s cool if the Broncos are the team to pay it. As long as it’s lot of money.”
Here’s a tip to Marshall if he wants to save money: Fire your public relations team.
UPDATE: Anderson tweets that said P.R. team did not officially release a statement. In Anderson’s words, they contacted her to disseminate a message. Not a statement. A message. Glad that’s cleared up.
