Report: Brandon Marshall, Broncos to talk today

B.Marshall.jpgWith the Pittsburgh Steelers giving Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes to the Jets for a fifth-round draft pick only eight days after Donovan McNabb fetched a second-rounder and a 2011 third- or fourth-rounder for the Eagles, the Denver Broncos need to be reconsidering their position that they want only a first-round pick for receiver Brandon Marshall.

Whatever the Broncos have decided, they’ll apparently be communicating it to Marshall today.  Per Josina Anderson of FOX 31 in Denver, the Broncos and Marshall will meet Tuesday to discuss the future.

It could be that the Broncos have decided to bring back Marshall for 2010, if/when he chooses to ink his restricted free agency tender.  Or it could be that the Broncos want him to sign the tender so that they’ll be able to trade him on a moment’s notice during the draft, if a good opportunity arises.

Or it could be that they want to get him to sign the tender so that they can keep him, but that they’ll simply tell him they want the tender to be signed and ready in the event that a trade opportunity arises.

Either way, recent developments have thrown a large wrench into the team’s plans.  At the end of the 2009 season, there were strong signs that a trade was inevitable.  Now, it’s anyone’s guess as to whether Marshall will be returning for a fifth season with the team.

    McDouchebag is a McDumbass for not getting B-Marsh locked up in a long term deal. One of the 5 most talented guys in the league at his position… and the coach is going to throw it away. Nice hire, Mr. Bowlen.

    I hear he’s going to the Jets for a jug of gatorade!

  3. hizzle1281 says: Apr 13, 2010 9:37 AM

    Hopefully the Pats give up a couple 2nd round picks for this guy……

  4. RedskinSteve says: Apr 13, 2010 9:37 AM

    Shanahan, Allen – Work your magic and get this guy!!!

  5. milehiclown says: Apr 13, 2010 9:37 AM

    If we aren’t gonna get a #1 (or a couple of 2′s or some other variant of a package) I hope we simply sign him to a long-term deal.
    He must understand now that he isn’t as coveted as he thinks and my Donks surely realize by now that they are asking way too much for a guy the league knows they want to unload.
    A long-term deal is in the best interest of both parties.

    Good work turning the sentence – The Broncos will be meeting with Brandon Marshall – into a 5 paragraph waste of time.

  7. boredsilly says: Apr 13, 2010 9:43 AM

    Or it could be that they want him to sign it so they can sell the autograph on ebay when he goes to a good team and wins a Super Bowl or two…Hear that, Baltimore???

  8. War_Paint says: Apr 13, 2010 9:49 AM

    Marshall is an obvious talent, but he’s also an obvious headcase. I doubt Denver ends up getting a 1st rounder for him, when teams factor what he wants paid plus all the idiotic baggage he brings to the table I think they’ll balk at the Bronco’s demands.

  9. Lancane says: Apr 13, 2010 9:55 AM

    The smart move would be for McDaniels to swallow his pride and arrogance, and finally ink Marshall to a long-term deal.
    He needs to realize that Marshall is not going to care about what a team is willing to give up for him, whether it’s a second and a fourth or some other arrangement. Either pay him or trade him, just because a team is unwilling to part with a first round pick does not mean they are not willing to sign him to a long-term contract and McDaniels needs to understand that!

  10. BenRapistberger says: Apr 13, 2010 9:56 AM

    the Pats will give them a 2nd rounder for him. At least I hope they will.
    The guy is easily a top 5 WR, and better than Randy Moss at this point. Having both of them for a year then letting Moss walk would be the smart thing to do.

  11. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Apr 13, 2010 9:57 AM

    Brandon Marshall has been a top 3 WR in the last 3 years, he set an NFL record with completions in’a game last year, this guy is only going to get better, with the right team and the right coach he’ll be level headed off the field

    Brandon Marshall to the Falcons for WR Michael Jenkins and a 3rd round pick (#83) in next weeks draft.

    That was an Albert Haynesworth deal, and Michael Jenkins would’ve been a throw-in to also acquire S LaRon Landry from the Redskins. I’m open to plenty of offers though these next 9 days.

    Wouldn’t also be prudent to highlight what the Ravens gave up to get Boldin, being that they do play the same position and all.

  18. Rick says: Apr 13, 2010 10:35 AM

    Brandon wants out of Denver due to the shooting he was involved in. He just wants a fresh start away from that bad memory but he acted like an ass. The best thing for all involved would be a trade, Marshall for a #1 pick. if Denver lets him go for anything less they are complete morons.

  19. marktg30 says: Apr 13, 2010 10:42 AM

    Brandon Marshall for Shaun Rogers and Cleveland’s 2nd Round pick… I would be down with that:).

  20. FreeAgentPro says: Apr 13, 2010 10:46 AM

    WTF are you talking about, Florio? Holmes goes for only a 5th round pick, and you think the Broncos should reconsider ONLY asking for a first for Marshall? Were you drunk when you wrote that? THe Hol.mes deal proves that there is a steep discount on troubled receivers. If anything, the Broncos will be lucky to get a 2nd during the draft. I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up as a 2010 2nd and a 2011 4th or 5th.

  21. BigDeuce says: Apr 13, 2010 10:47 AM

    Bmarsh to Baltimore for gaither and a 5th since we have two picks in the 5th back to back we are now an attractive team to alot of good players we have the big arm QB and a top rank D and having Ray Rice n Bdog#81 can’t hurt when Bmarsh was here last yr he loved it and we beat den that game he remembers that we was tryn to get him 1st we even try’ed to get him last yr so why not now! Now it’s just a big plus to push us over the top n money is not a prob for us we have a few players we can dump! Go Ravens !!!!!!

  22. BroncoBourque says: Apr 13, 2010 10:50 AM

    So bassically we know they are meeting with Marshall but nothing else.
    They could be meeting with him to tell him that nobody wants to give up what they think he is worth and that he can either take their long term offer or sign the tender because they aren’t trading him. That is just as likely as any of the scenerios Florio has put out, maybe more likely. The bottom line is that Marshall is an asset and if he wants to play next year it is going to have to be on the Broncos terms one way or another.
    Either through a long term deal with them, signing the tender and playing for them or in a trade to another team on their terms. The Broncos don’t have to do anything other than one of those three things and that will likely be part of the conversation when they meet.

  23. joshmcdanielsisthedevil says: Apr 13, 2010 10:52 AM

    A top five talent at his position…yes. Also one of the five biggest headaches in the NFL. These two morons deserve each other.

    Brandon Marshall to the Falcons for WR Michael Jenkins and a 3rd round pick (#83) in next weeks draft. – SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK
    So that I’m clear, does this come with a free kick to the nuts?
    Awful trade suggestion.

  25. elwayisgod says: Apr 13, 2010 11:01 AM

    Shanny hates Marshall just like he hates Portis. Portis will not play a down under Shanny unless he’s not such a clown in locker room. Shanny needs to build his OL. Without that, they are toast….
    Marshall looks untradeable at this point. Bronc’s might as well keep him for a year and see if he can get in double digit TD’s and then move him next year.
    Who knows, complete crapshoot. One thing nobody mentions is the fact the McDouchebag has worn out his welcome in NFL and other teams don’t want to deal with this little Napoleon.

  26. dixinpunani says: Apr 13, 2010 11:07 AM

    Hey free agent pro if they would be “lucky” to get a second for marshall then why would another team also have to throw in an additional pick the following year along with their second this year?

  27. Shawmor says: Apr 13, 2010 11:12 AM

    Satan567, you’re a SperSized McIdiot! You don’t win championships with low character players. Regardless of talent. The Broncos are not and will never be the Raiders… move your loyalties and your incompetence to the Silver and Black!

  28. War_Paint says: Apr 13, 2010 11:19 AM

    “with the right team and the right coach he’ll be level headed off the field”
    Really? So the only reason he’s been a complete jackass was because of his coaches?
    Do you realize just how dumb that sounds? Probably not.

  29. ZombieRevolution says: Apr 13, 2010 11:20 AM

    With the Pittsburgh Steelers only getting a 5th for a Super Bowl MVP and the Eagles only getting a second round and a 2011 third- or fourth-rounder for a former Pro Bowl QB, Florio thinks the Broncos should ask for more than 1 st round pick for Brandon Marshall.
    Marshall from an NFL standpoint Marshall is a more attractive player than either of the two, but Florio’s statement makes little sense. Teams are trying to avoid headache players.

    no reason for him to gripe through the media like TO and more of a reason for him to keep a low profile

  31. VegasBronco says: Apr 13, 2010 11:48 AM

    I have been an opponent to keeping him under a friendly contract.
    Coach McDaniels and GM Xanders will get the tender signed or (my guess) is that they will sign him to a two year contract. About 5.5 million per year with each year to carry incentives for an extra $2.5 million.
    This is the best organization around

    “One thing nobody mentions is the fact the McDouchebag has worn out his welcome in NFL and other teams don’t want to deal with this little Napoleon.”
    Right, yeah, never hear anything like that from, you know, thousands of message board lunkheads like yourself.
    Never mind that you have literally nothing to back that up. Just keep them internet lips a-flappin’.

  33. SATAN567 says: Apr 13, 2010 12:53 PM

    @ Shawmore:
    Aren’t and never will be the Raiders… THAT’S RIGHT. WHO WANTS TO BE KNOWN AS THE WORST TEAM IN THE NFL OVER A 5 YEAR PERIOD? Get a clue dude. And don’t talk about signing high character players when you cheer for OAKLAND. The dredges of society…
