The slow pace to Brandon Marshall’s trade talks should pick up with the NFL Draft finally almost here.
A report came out this morning that Marshall and Broncos management will huddle Tuesday, getting Marshall’s name back in the news. That talk will take place on the phone, not in person, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.
Santonio Holmes’ trade doesn’t figure to help the Broncos get fair value for Marshall, but they are different cases. The Steelers were prepared to release Holmes; we think the Broncos could live with taking Marshall back if they don’t get any decent offers.
Meanwhile, KDVR’s Josina Anderson reports that “some teams many would not expect” have shown interest in Marshall. Interest is one thing; we’ll see if there are any teams willing to give up significant trade value on top of a monster contract.
