PFT Daily: What to do with Brandon Marshall

Florio usually posts the intro to PFT Daily, but he’s reintroduced himself to the world outside his desk for a few hours.

In Thursday’s edition, he looks at what Denver could do with Brandon Marshall.

I still think keeping Marshall is a viable option.  Florio thinks he’ll get moved, but you have to watch the fancy video to find out where.

    how about they sign him to a long term contract fire mcdaniels and hire ronald mcdonald i think he could run the team better….why give away the one guy that makes anything happen on the offense, he gets doubles and still makes plays ask Dallas how much of a force he is i think they will remember

    detroit should have gave him the money instead of NateDawgg

    He should go to Washington where he will have a great QB throwing him the ball, unlike Philly with that noodle arm Kolb. I can’t wait to see those front-running Philly fans, like Lowell Rikert, reacting to a last place team.

    I’d be estatic to get the #14.
    Probably won’t happen.
    McDaniels has turned the offense into one that was feared into on that will be complete joke, and one of the worst in the NFL.
    Without Marsh, only Clady, Graham, and Royal would probably start on most other teams, and that is a big maybe on Graham and Royal.
    He has the all Geritol team on defense, our defense has one foot in the grave.
    And Dumervil is still unsigned, despite leading the league in sacks.
    What joke we are.

    rydendonkeys you hit it right on the head, how can you throw away someone like marshall and not resign dumervil yet i think mcdaniels has really made denver look like an expansion team the way they dispose of anything good

    I still don’t see him being moved, maybe it is wishful thinking but I think the Broncos are quite happy to let the RFA process play out. If, as it appears now, he doesn’t sign an offer sheet they will make him a long term offer and if he turns it down they will bring him back under the one year tender.
    At the end of the day Marshall isn’t in any different a position than dozens of other RFAs like Austin, Jackson, McNeil, Meriman and more. Teams know that the RFA process gives them lots of leverage and that the leverage only improves as time goes on and they are faced with playing under the tender signing long term with their current team.

    The Colts should pick him up. Imagine what Peyton could do with a big tall WR.

    I think you’re correct on one count…it is wishful thinking on your part.
    Marshall is absolutely NOT in the same position as players like Austin, Jackson, etc. Marshall’s Head Coach has gone out of his way to indicate he doesn’t want Marshall on the team. His Owner, who supposedly agreed to trade him, is not very supportive of Marshall but is entirely supportive of McDaniels. The Broncos team doctors mis-diagnosed a medical problem Marshall had last year resulting in Marshall’s lack of trust in them.
    There are numerous other reasons why his case is different than some of the other players you mention, and many of the reasons are of Marshall’s own doing.
    It’s extremely unfortunate that the best player on the team and the most significant game changer the Broncos have is in a situation where he is more likely to be moved to another team than continue his career in Denver.
    A very sad situation that was preventable at one point but probably isn’t any more.

    This whole discussion is silly. No team in their right mind is going to give up a first or a second round pick for Marshall. Everyone knows the Broncos are desperate to move him which lowers his value, plus the Cardinals only got a third and a fourth rounder for Boldin who, while a little older and maybe not quite the player Marshall is, also comes with a lot less baggage. The Broncos are going to have to settle for a third round pick or less, or deal with an unstable, unhappy player for another season.

    What joke we are?
    Setting the awful grammar aside, I don’t consider a team that was 8-8 last year a “joke.”
    In the last 20 years the Denver Broncos have failed to win at least 7 games ONE TIME. By way of comparison, 18 teams have failed to win 7 games in just the last 2 years.
    The Chiefs (probably your real favorite team) have failed to win more than 4 each of the last 3 years. Now, that team is a “joke.”

    Do a trade with the Steelers. Santonio Holmes for Brandon Marshall. Even up.
    GO STEELERS!

    I really don’t understand why Marshall HAS to be moved. They key component that seems to be missing when talking about if a team will give up a #1 next year is that McDaniels was brought in with the expectation of winning now, not rebuilding the team. The entire coaching and management staff would be under heavy fire if they lost another top talent without seeking comparatory talent NOW.
    Whether they keep Marshall at a price and contract they are comfortable with or whether they get a top draft deal that they feel is equal to what Brandon brings, the Broncos have all the leverage here and don’t HAVE to do anything they don’t want to. Could be a simple power-play.
