Brandon Marshall is now under contract to the Denver Broncos. Which may mean he’ll soon be under contract to some other team.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Marshall, a restricted free agent tendered at the first-round level, signed his one-year, $2.5 million tender offer today. The signing comes hours after Marshall and Broncos coach Josh McDaniels were scheduled to talk on the phone.
For the Broncos, having Marshall under contract means they have the ability to shop him and see if they can find the right trading partner.
The Seahawks are interested in Marshall’s services, but they weren’t interested enough to sign him to an offer sheet which, because the Broncos surely wouldn’t have matched the offer and then the Seahawks would have been out the sixth overall pick in the draft.
It will be interesting to see whether the Seahawks make a trade offer for Marshall, now that he can be had for whatever the two teams can agree is a fair price.
