Broncos to trade Brandon Marshall to Miami

Last month, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said that receiver Brandon Marshall wouldn’t be a good fit for the Dolphins.

Hopefully, Sparano won’t soon be commenting on whether he’ll be the Alabama coach.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Marshall will be shipped to the Dolphins for a second-round pick in the 2010 draft and “what is thought to be” a second-round selection in 2011.  The deal hinges on Marshall passing a physical.  (Though a formality, Marshall has had an on-and-off hip issue, the handling of which caused his relationship with the Broncos to sour.)

Marshall also expected to sign “one of the most lucrative wide receiver deals” in league history.  The top of the market has been $10 million for more than two years, when Larry Fitzgerald parlayed the eight-figure back end of his rookie deal into a new contract.  Others, like Randy Moss and Roy Williams, earn $9 million annually.

And though we’ve taken the position for weeks that the Dolphins, who will benefit tremendously from having a receiver who commands double coverage anywhere/everywhere he goes, should do this deal, Marshall’s history of arrests and behavior makes us once again wonder what it takes to be regarded by Bill Parcells as a “thug” or a “hoodlum”.

Maybe Larry David put in a good word for him.

    Seattle dropped the ball on this deal. Marhsall, although has baggage, is a great talent that Seattle should have been able/more willing to acquire.

    *Marshall

  3. rayray1284 says: Apr 14, 2010 7:42 AM

    whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa so pumped up. jets got nothing on us

  4. Bob Nelson says: Apr 14, 2010 7:43 AM

    Good for the Broncos to send a troubled locker room cancer to a city where there is plenty of trouble to find him.
    Can he go a calender year without an incident there?

  5. Markus2112 says: Apr 14, 2010 7:44 AM

    Snooze you lose Seattle!

  6. Rob B says: Apr 14, 2010 7:45 AM

    about time the Fins get some help for the Offense

  7. Shademan says: Apr 14, 2010 7:45 AM

    Marshall will be suspended within a year. He wont be able to control himself in Miami. So long douchebag

  8. RedskinSteve says: Apr 14, 2010 7:46 AM

    Wow! I am truly depressed and thought that Shanny would get it done! Two second round picks is not much for a man at his position with his talent. Nice pickup Miami!
    Would you give us Ginn for a 5th rounder???

  9. Rob B says: Apr 14, 2010 7:46 AM

    I hope they shipped Ted Ginn & Pat White to the Broncos for future considerations.

  10. silverback says: Apr 14, 2010 7:47 AM

    Tom Brady is a pedofile. There I accused him, now Goodell must suspend him or he is a racist!
    See the path we are heading down???

  11. Munze Konza says: Apr 14, 2010 7:48 AM

    Seattle, I think you misse dout, but then again two 2nd round picks…maybe it was better to not to do it.

  12. Jackal666 says: Apr 14, 2010 7:49 AM

    Wow NICE!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. xltriton says: Apr 14, 2010 7:50 AM

    thanx bill

  14. Bill In DC says: Apr 14, 2010 7:52 AM

    Isn’t that deal going to have to be mostly ‘bonus’ type money because of the ’30%’ rule?
    It means that Miami is officially out of the ‘Dez Bryant’ market and won’t have to make that value judgment with the 12th pick next week. I’d bet they take NT or LB with that pick now.

  15. xltriton says: Apr 14, 2010 7:52 AM

    will soprano know how to use him?

  16. READY2CRUSH says: Apr 14, 2010 7:52 AM

    PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’M DOING BACKFLIPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO MIAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. tdprog1 says: Apr 14, 2010 7:53 AM

    Jerry Jones should be given a 4 game suspension for signing Roy Williams to 9mil a year.

  18. patsSB44champs says: Apr 14, 2010 7:54 AM

    By all means keep bringing in the bad apples, rivals.
    That’s the only positive spin I can put on this…

  19. GirthyOne says: Apr 14, 2010 7:54 AM

    Denver better hope that they can land some serious QB/WR talent at some point with the picks they received from Chicago and Miami. They have given up both their young pro-bowl QB and WR in consecutive years.
    I predicted failure for Denver’s McDaniels after he first started handling Cutler by lying to him. Sending your best talent elsewhere does nothing but harm your team.
    Denver will now try to become the Baltimore of the West.

  20. hnirobert says: Apr 14, 2010 7:55 AM

    THE BEASSSSSSSSSTTTTTTT!
    I will personally watch over Marshall and make sure he doesn’t get into any trouble.

  21. BRONCOSMANIAC_7 says: Apr 14, 2010 7:55 AM

  22. DSanch305 says: Apr 14, 2010 7:57 AM

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Chapnasty2 says: Apr 14, 2010 7:57 AM

    I cant help but wonder if Ted Ginn will have a much improved year with someone taking coverage away. I’d put him in the slot and let him run away from people. Now they just need to teach him how to catch.

  24. smithopher says: Apr 14, 2010 7:57 AM

    This sucks man. The Jets will still beat your asses this year though.

  25. medic406 says: Apr 14, 2010 7:58 AM

    Brandon Marshall does have a history of legal woes but it will be good for him to have a change of scenery. It’s Miami, how could he possibly get in trouble there?

  26. milehiclown says: Apr 14, 2010 7:58 AM

    Boil: lanced.
    Draft:
    11: Dez Bryant
    43: Markus Pouncey (or something)
    Well, we aren’t the Raiders. But we are much worse.

  27. Munze Konza says: Apr 14, 2010 7:58 AM

    You haven’t been posting for weeks that the Dolphins should do this deal, most of it has been tha the Seahawks should. Oh, well, now that the fish have him we (Seattle) can look at Dez.

  28. aec4 says: Apr 14, 2010 7:59 AM

    wait a second.
    Jets get blasted for getting Holmes for a 5th with trial year left on his contract, yet the Dolphins snag a slightly better WR who is just as much of a problem, have to give him a huge deal, and trade a 2nd in 2010 and a 2nd in 2011 and it’s a steal?

  29. gatorbaitnow says: Apr 14, 2010 8:00 AM

    WoW!!! This is great news for phins fans!!! Phins will also sweeten the pot and throw in Ginn and White as freebies.
    GO PHINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Burnum says: Apr 14, 2010 8:01 AM

    Yeeeeah!!!

  31. JBx11 says: Apr 14, 2010 8:02 AM

    Great trade for Miami, I know it’s not at the same value as Santonio Holmes (for a 5th) but it’s definitely head over heels better than the trade for Roy Williams (1st, 3rd, 6th). I think Marshall is one of the best WRs in the game, and will be a nice pickup for Miami so they can then ship away Ginn for a 3rd or 4th round pick.

  32. dolfanSS says: Apr 14, 2010 8:04 AM

    YES! YES! YES!
    This is great news! If he keeps his head on straight The Dolphins offense is set. Now they can spend their draft picks on the side of the ball where the most work is needed.

  33. Lucky5927 says: Apr 14, 2010 8:05 AM

    Good for the Dolphins… I am surprised that the Bronco’s agreed to a 2nd round pickin 2011, with such a deep draft class this year. I personally would have pushed for a draft pick this year. Good move for the Bronco’s in a time when difficult WR’s are being traded. Perhaps it can be a good move for the Dolphins as well, depending on how Marshall adjusts to the Dolphins offense. Next up… who wants to trade for Ted Gin Jr…

  34. promichael says: Apr 14, 2010 8:05 AM

    Miami has such a dire need for a receiver, why take a chance on a rookie who would take time to develop. Parcells is a gambler who will take a chance with talent. Brandon Marshall is one of the most talented wide receivers in the league.
    I emailed Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald and indicated to him that Parcells would weigh the talent verses downside of Marshall and trade for him…..and so it goes.

  35. quadya says: Apr 14, 2010 8:07 AM

    BOOM!!!!

  36. dolfan05 says: Apr 14, 2010 8:07 AM

    THANK YOU!!!! We keep our first and get Marshall!!! Christmas has come early, Henne to Marshall……WOW….SICK!

  37. stuckpig says: Apr 14, 2010 8:08 AM

    revis gets to shut him down twice a year now

  38. BroncoBourque says: Apr 14, 2010 8:08 AM

    Well there you go Calgaryhawk, they didn’t get a 1st round pick, you told me so. Then again, if the deal is for a 2nd this year and next, that is still first round value so I wasn’t completely wrong.
    It will be interesting to see how the Broncos offense does without Marshall. Though it was against the Chiefs, the one game last season without Marshall, Orton threw for over 400 yards so it might not have as big an impact as many think.

  39. madsqgrdn says: Apr 14, 2010 8:08 AM

    ewww…and they are going to have to pay him…good luck with that one Miami..

  40. SlimPickens says: Apr 14, 2010 8:09 AM

    Why did Jerry give a 1 & 3 for Roy makes even less sense. I like the trade for Miami and wonder what the hell is Mcdaniels doing to all the talent in Denver. If this doesnt work out for the Broncos he might share the award for “Dumbass Who Ruined a Franchise” with Matt Millen

  41. Big Stretch says: Apr 14, 2010 8:09 AM

    Damn! Looks like the Bills are going to be finishing last in the east for the next 5 years or so. I hate living in S. Florida and being a Bills fan maybe I’ll start rooting for the Jags

  42. Howboutdemcowboys says: Apr 14, 2010 8:09 AM

    This proves Tony “the puppet” Sparano just bent over and opened wide for Parcells.
    It also marks the end for Parcells, right before he is about to leave town he brings in players that will sabotage the locker room to try and prove that when the team falls apart after he leaves it was because he left. Ala T.O.

  43. Cleg says: Apr 14, 2010 8:10 AM

    Jeez, I thought for sure he would be a Skin. Oh well…

  44. Didier says: Apr 14, 2010 8:10 AM

    This is a terrific trade for Miami.
    Marshall, whatever his issues, has the best statistics of any receiver in the NFL over the past three seasons.

  45. Verbal Kint says: Apr 14, 2010 8:11 AM

    Quick! Everyone go update your mocks!

  46. toonster says: Apr 14, 2010 8:11 AM

    Great move for Miami. Value is worth it. I’d look for them to deal down from 12 to get more picks.
    McDaniels wanted to move on, and now he has more picks to play with. I expect Scheffler to get traded. They’ve got to add some passing weapons. Sure, they want to be more of a power running team, but right now, off the top, I think it’s Royal/Gaffney/Stokely with Graham/Quinn at TE (if Scheffler is moved). Not exactly an imposing receiving group … to say the least.

  47. E.F.Cuttin says: Apr 14, 2010 8:16 AM

    Great move…Now they can use Ginn and Bess in the slot and Line Marshall and Hartline outside…Diggin the move Tuna…

  48. irishsamurai says: Apr 14, 2010 8:17 AM

    wow,with the jets and all their signings,this tops them all,bet ryan would trade them all in for a playr like marshall,with this move the fins just took over second place in the division,without marshall they owned the jets last year,lets see revis cover marshall and ginn at same time

  51. Dolphinatic13 says: Apr 14, 2010 8:25 AM

    It was nice to finally see the emphasis being shifted from those hated Jets to the team that has owned them the last 2 times they played. Ginn made your secondary look like chumps, Ginn! Imagine what Marshall could do, nice pick-up Miami!

  52. Santonio'sBluntWrap says: Apr 14, 2010 8:25 AM

    This is so freakin unbelievable I don’t know what to do with myself!!!!
    If he keeps his head on straight, Miami is a force to be reckoned with this year. All you Jests jokers talking about how you are going to dominate Miami better check your smack talk at the gate come game time, because if Ted Ginn was able to light up your team for some yardage, you better believe Marshall is going to tear you sewer rats a new one.

    Are you stupid?? SLIGHTLY better?????? Marshall is a top 3-4 WR in this league. Holmes is probably 17-20

    Welcome to Revis Island

  56. BernardPollardIsAnAss says: Apr 14, 2010 8:28 AM

    Not looking forward to seeing this guy twice a year at least. He has done enough damage when the Patriots see him just once a year. He may be dumb as a rock but there is no denying his talent. Ouch.

  57. shiftyshellshocked says: Apr 14, 2010 8:29 AM

    Man,seems kind of cheap for a receiver like that. If he can stay out of trouble and keep his soup cooler shut the Dolphins did well.

  58. JetFan in Miami says: Apr 14, 2010 8:32 AM

    Reactionary move towards the Jets moves much?? Big pickup, but this could haunt them for years to come if something remotely bad happens.

  59. FrankyFiveFingers says: Apr 14, 2010 8:32 AM

    yessssss. I am so fired up I just put my fist through an entertainment center. I dont care what you say, we havent done squat with our second round picks in forever anyway, so why not give them away and take a shot at ‘The Beast’. Now we can trade Ginn or at least use him as a return guy and as a #2 or burner/decoy. Dansby immediately upgrades the D, Marshall immediately upgrades the O. Now just trade Pat White and give Lex Hilliard a little more PT this year and we’re all set.

  60. MagicMan407 says: Apr 14, 2010 8:32 AM

    I wonder who will pass him the ball? Ronnie Brown maybe? Maybe they should be thinking of getting a talented QB? Henne isnt very good statistically throwing more picks than TDs.

  62. Burnum says: Apr 14, 2010 8:35 AM

    @ Jets Fans: you can brag all you want, we still swept you…

  63. ROBERT says: Apr 14, 2010 8:38 AM

    Jets lost twice last year to the Dolphins without the talent of Marshall. Wait till Tuna drafts and we once again make Rexy and the Jets fan complain and whine and they suck. Huge pickup for Miami. I say if Denver doesnt take Dez in the 1st, Miami should. Bryant & Marshall for at least 5 yrs (havoc) on the East.

  64. sniperhare says: Apr 14, 2010 8:40 AM

    With the 12th pick in the draft, Miami selects Dan Williams, NT out of UCLA.

  65. rydendonkeys says: Apr 14, 2010 8:40 AM

    Revis will get owned by Marshall. Way to physical for him to shut down, that is a joke.
    Glad we got good value for Marshall. 2 2nds is decent.

  66. Cleric John Preston says: Apr 14, 2010 8:41 AM

    I love this move solely because as a Ravens fan stuck in New England, I hate the Patriots and am loving seeing their division improve (sans Bills) while they stay pat.
    BTW Pats fans, i enjoyed the beatdown the Ravens gave you in the playoffs. And the fact that your fans abandoned ship by the 2nd half. Purple takeover, baby!

  67. chickenragnarpartdeux says: Apr 14, 2010 8:42 AM

  68. hnirobert says: Apr 14, 2010 8:43 AM

    REPORT: REX RYAN TO THE ER, THE STAPLES IN HIS STOMACH HAVE POPPED OUT!
    He ate 24 cans of Tuna and they gave out!

  69. BRUTUS9448 says: Apr 14, 2010 8:43 AM

    Anyone who thinks Marshall is only slightly better than Holmes is dreaming. Marshall, Andre Johnson and larry fitzgerald are the 3 best receviers in the league by far.

  70. really? says: Apr 14, 2010 8:53 AM

    Andre Johnson is just as physical as Marshall…..how’d he do against Revis?

  71. GreenAsGrass says: Apr 14, 2010 8:54 AM

    wonderful…
    nice to see Fish becoming competitive…
    too bad your defense blows, and BTW you all know REVIS will shut down Marshall twice a year.

  72. dhrodgers52 says: Apr 14, 2010 8:55 AM

    Rayray1248:
    We got Revis on you. Or on Marshall I should say, sorry to say but your best receiver is already lost on Revis Island…

  73. HOI says: Apr 14, 2010 8:57 AM

    The inferiority complex you Fish fans have with the Jets is borderline psychotic. All you guys do is talk about how you swept them last year. Do you think they care!?! They were playing in the AFC championship game while Chad Henne was golfing and Ronnie Brown was….well…probably drinking.
    So yea…you beat the Jets twice LAST year. Which means you were 5-9 against the rest of the league. You controlled your own destiny regardless of what the Jets did and you choked…great season congrats.
    BTW…Revis shuts everyone down. Enjoy…the two weeks you get out of BM before he flips out on Henne and you’re staff.

  74. HarrisonHits says: Apr 14, 2010 8:59 AM

    Miami will still be fighting it out with the Bills as bottom feeders. Marshall won’t last 6 months in Miami without getting arrested and suspended.

  75. Gautam says: Apr 14, 2010 8:59 AM

    The last place you would want to send a player with off-field issues is the state of FLORIDA

  76. DoctorK says: Apr 14, 2010 9:00 AM

    Brutus you are right on. Marhsall is a game changer–a guy who grew up in Pittsburgh and is still very fond of his hometown. This is a guy who wants to rebuild areas of city suffering urban blight….and another native Pittsburgher whom Steeler brass does not welcome.
    What idiots we have in the Steelers personnel dept. This guy would have been welcomed as a returning hero–something we could really use right now.

  77. HOI says: Apr 14, 2010 9:01 AM

    “Revis will get owned by Marshall. Way to physical for him to shut down, that is a joke. ”
    Yea because Andre Johnson isnt physical…how did that work out for him against the Jets last year. TO isnt physical…how did that work out for him in two games against the Jets…ah forget it. Cant talk sense into a homer…congrats Fins…SB here you come.

  78. Iron Wolf says: Apr 14, 2010 9:01 AM

    As a lifelong Pats fan, I really enjoyed the last decade, but the other teams in the division have really made some bold moves and look poised to take over. I still think the Pats are re-loading on the fly and it may not be enough to win the division again. Both the Jets and Dolphins should be commended for some bold moves. The division will be a bloodbath this year, and that’s how it should be.

  79. JetChris says: Apr 14, 2010 9:02 AM

    Great pick ups by Miami and the Jets. Only thing that worries me (I am a Jets fan) and should worry fins fans is that both are 1 mess up away from 1 year suspensions.
    Oh well, just another WR who will be shut down by Revis LOL…..

  80. JetFanLivinInMiami says: Apr 14, 2010 9:08 AM

    Are you serious, this trade out beats all the trades the Jets did? I agree this is a fantastic trade for the Dolphins. Much needed receiver. However, it has no baring on what the Jets have done. The Jets addressed their needs, as the Dolphins addressed theirs.
    Dolphins never had a problem scoring, they’ll not have a added demotion to score.
    The Jets addressed their DEFENSE with free-agency and will continue to address it in the draft.
    Just for the record, REVIS doesn’t need to cover both of them at the same time. They picked up Cromartie, so he’ll cover Ginn. If Ginn will still be there (which, I believe you guys will trade him).
    You have to admit on thing though: REVIS vs MARSHALL will be a great match-up to watch! I’ll give my boy REVIS the edge, right now; but not by much.
    BTW, great pick up! Marshall is the real deal.

  81. BigBear123 says: Apr 14, 2010 9:08 AM

    Parcells won’t take thugs and hoodlums bur will take wife beaters and drunks. Makes sense.

  82. JCompton says: Apr 14, 2010 9:10 AM

    The only thing that is not good about Marshell is youre going to have to pay him 10 mil a year, I would rather have Ocho and Bryant for the same price as just Marshell.

  83. pacstud says: Apr 14, 2010 9:17 AM

    Wow. Bold position to take:
    “that the Dolphins, who will benefit tremendously from having a receiver who commands double coverage anywhere/everywhere he goes”
    What other positions have you taken?
    Maybe they need a great QB that can make all the throws?
    A RB who can score from anywhere?
    I mean, let’s keep this ball rolling oh Masters of the Obvious *severe eye roll*
    The AFC East is now officially the “Pen” of the NFL.

  84. BDiddy says: Apr 14, 2010 9:17 AM

    Miami got robbed. The minute he signs that big contract he’ll start slacking off and putting himself in position to be suspended.

  85. bamgrey says: Apr 14, 2010 9:18 AM

    LOL all you people saying Marshall will get into trouble because he’s in Miami. News flash the reason he signed his tender so quick is because he’s from Fl, he played his college ball in Orlando and owns a house in West Palm which is like a a hour away from Miami. The man is home. LOL

  86. BroncoBourque says: Apr 14, 2010 9:25 AM

    @Calgaryhawk
    To follow up my earlier point about this being first round value if the deal is as reported. Using the value chart and valuing the 2nd round pick in 2011 as a mid 3rd round pick, this deal would have approximately the same value as the 28th pick in this year’s draft. That isn’t quite as much as the Broncos were hoping for but not nearly as little as you suggested teams would give them. So yes you “told me so” that they wouldn’t get a first round pick but they did still get first round value for a guy they apparently didn’t have any intention on keeping.

    Game 1: Ginn 2 catches for 57 yards and a TD. (safety didn’t help, but whatever, great route by Ginn, even better throw by Henne)
    Game 2: Ginn ZERO catches, one attempt
    Yes he got a ton of yardage.
    He got two TD’s on kick-off returns. But, Marshall doesn’t do kick-off returns.
    Can’t wait for the season to get started!!! GO JETS!!!

    He had 12 TDs and 14 Ints in his first season starting 14 games. While those numbers aren’t great, they aren’t bad foer a rookie QB.
    Are you a Jet’s fan? If you are, you have a bit more to worry about. Sanchize had 12 Tds and 20 INTs in 16 games.
    Most rookie QBs have similar TS vs INT numbers their first season.
    The QB position in Miami is fine. Henne will be better than last year.

  89. thehoodedone says: Apr 14, 2010 9:32 AM

    I’m sure you did enjoy it. I mean ,when you wait over a decade for something ,you tend to savour it more. Hope to hear from you again in 2022.

    Riiiiight…because he did such a bang up job on Teddy “I almost had it” Ginn, right?

    It’s amazing how there are more Jets haters on this thing than actual real fans…. Screw all the character stuff, cause that doesn’t win games. Bringing Brandon Marshall to Miami was a great move and worth the price, as was the move to get Santonio Holmes. Miami-Jets should be good games this year, as they are every year.
    B-Marsh vs. Revis
    Ginn vs. Cromartie
    Advantage….. jets

    2 second round picks?! That’s two quarterbacks that Miami is just throwing away!

    We just turned the corner in becoming a Super Bowl contender down in South Beach…
    VIVA LA BILL!!!
    VIVA LA BILL!!!
    Show them how you make Marshall one of “Parcells guys” as you did with a “troubled” Brian Cox when you brought him aboard your NY Jets team back in the day…the Cox “gas can” in the lockeroom was a Parcells classic.

  97. JoeSixPack says: Apr 14, 2010 9:59 AM

    Interesting to see that the Patriots are taking great pains to sign quality, high character players like Wilfork while the Jets and Dolphins are signing other teams locker room problems.
    In the Fins case they’re going to be paying $10 million a year minimum for the privelege.
    Let’s see how things work out.
    He’ll probably be OK this year but chances are they’l have to trade him in a few years just like the Broncos did.

  98. kpweaver27 says: Apr 14, 2010 10:09 AM

    Wow, Dolphins fans are going insane over this one. I see this move hurting Denver more than it helps Miami somehow, but we’ll see what Henne can do with a #1. What makes this interesting to me is that the Jets seem like the favorite for the AFC East Title, so who is stronger for a wild card, Miami or New England? Neither team has a pass rush.

  99. The_One_Brent says: Apr 14, 2010 10:10 AM

    At the end of this season every team except Miami is going to regret not making this deal. A game changer for a 2nd round pick in 2011. I know he has baggage but so does 90% of the nfl playas!!! The real pain I have is that the next best reciever was available and the Bengals my hometown team didnt even think once about pulling this deal. Must be because we draft so good. Akili Smith is on his what 10th Pro bowl!! follow me on twitter @ The_One_Brent

    EXCELLET!!! I LOVE IT!!! GO FINS!!!

  101. BrownsClown says: Apr 14, 2010 10:22 AM

    Let’s see how this works out. The Fins get Marshall to counter the JETS with Holmes and “Hands of Stone” Braylon Edwards. Will be very interesting to see those teams play in 2010!

  102. The_One_Brent says: Apr 14, 2010 10:24 AM

    Miami going in the direction of the Colts just outscore everyone!!

  103. BroncoBourque says: Apr 14, 2010 10:24 AM

    Marshall is a great WR and I was a big fan in his time in Denver but lets not get carried away with all this hall of fame talk and being the best in the league. The guy is a fantastic POSESSION WR but he hasn’t never averaged more than 13 yards per catch in his career and averaged only 11.1 last year. He will be a great addition to the Dolphins but like I said all this talk about him being top 3 in the league is overblown BS.

  104. BigDeuce says: Apr 14, 2010 10:30 AM

    A bold move by the Fins this shows that they do want to compete this yr but this move didn’t come cheap two 2rd picks and a 9 to 10 mill per yr contract was way to rich for the Ravens or any other team out there hey we might can take Ginn of your hands now for a 5rd pick for sure! Let’s go Cam make it happen!

  105. finsbooyah says: Apr 14, 2010 10:30 AM

    This trade looks fair for both sides…
    2 2nd round picks for a team with a solid D, that is lookin’ to get younger… I’ll take it.
    Dolphins get their first elite WR since the retirement of Mark Clayton… I’ll definatly take it.
    The AFC East just got alot more interesting

  106. jetboy says: Apr 14, 2010 10:38 AM

    wow,with the jets and all their signings,this tops them all,bet ryan would trade them all in for a playr like marshall,with this move the fins just took over second place in the division,without marshall they owned the jets last year,lets see revis cover marshall and ginn at same time
    Great pick for the Dolphins, your Jet comments still show your insecurities, if it wasn’t for the Jets the Dolphins would have never signed him we pressured Miami into that deal, the Jets could have had Marshall but like all the other 31 teams opted not to take him, if he stays out of trouble it’s a great addition for the Dolphins.

  107. MagicMan407 says: Apr 14, 2010 10:40 AM

    overkil2-
    Dont insult me! lol I am no Jets fan but I dont think Henne is a prize and I didnt know he was a rookie? I am just a jealous Redskins fan who thinks Campbell would be better than Henne and thats not a good thing.

    Jets lost twice last year to the Dolphins without the talent of Marshall. Wait till Tuna drafts and we once again make Rexy and the Jets fan complain and whine and they suck. Huge pickup for Miami. I say if Denver doesnt take Dez in the 1st, Miami should. Bryant & Marshall for at least 5 yrs (havoc) on the East.
    Another uneducated Dolph fan, you need to draft Defense my friend because you don’t have one, the only reason you guys got Marshall is because the Jets forced your hands, your welcome.

  109. white caveman says: Apr 14, 2010 11:21 AM

    BRANDON MARSHALL IS THE MOST PHYSICAL WIDE RECEIVER IN THE LEAGUE HANDS DOWN.
    THE JETS ARE WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY OVERRATED.
    THE JETS ALWAYS COME OUT ON THE LOSING END. REMEMBER HOW BILL BELCHICK LEFT YOU GUYS AT THE ALTAR LOL

  110. BigFella87 says: Apr 14, 2010 11:26 AM

    JBx11 you must be outta your mind if you think Ginn will fetch a 3rd or a 4th round pick.
    Jets are gonna dominate that divison, even the might Pats won’t be able to pass on that D.
    That being said, AFC Championship will feature Indy (maybe the Jets……) and the Ravens, with the Ravens advancing to the bowl. Mark it!

  111. themage78 says: Apr 14, 2010 11:48 AM

    Now Ronadlo McClain will probably not make it down to pick 15. Screw you dolphins!

    At least were Rated, losing Belchick has got to be better than signing Saben, I am not going to coach Alabama, then going to Cameron, and your welcome for the Jets forcing your hands for Marshall, you dam well know if we weren’t making those moves the Italian fat boy, Parcells, and Ireland still would have been working on signing celebrity owners instead of players.

    Dear Mr. Parcells:
    I would like to retract the “Dove Bar eating” and “sleeping in the office with your feet on the desk” comments I posted last week in exchange for a heart felt thank you for pulling the trigger on this deal.

    Revis will get owned by Marshall. Way to physical for him to shut down, that is a joke.
    Glad we got good value for Marshall. 2 2nds is decent.
    Please Revis shut down Andre Johnson who is more physical than Marshall,— and T.O., and Randy Moss, and Ocho Cinco, and Colston, Henderson, etc. etc. etc…

  117. jetboy says: Apr 14, 2010 2:57 PM

    ALL DOLPHIN PLAYERS THIS IS PARCELL’S I AM PASSING A NEW TEAM RULE THAT WHEN YOU TRAVEL OR “HANG OUT” WITH BRANDON YOU ARE TO WHERE YOUR TEAM ISSUED BULLET PROOF VESTS, TRAVEL IN A TEAM APPROVED ARMORED CAR, AND ALWAYS, ALWAYS STAY ON THE FLOOR BOARDS OF ANY VEHICLE. THANK YOU BILL

    that’s 2 sure -fire pro-bowlers in their prime that miami has added this offseason…. not bad
    i didn’t think they’d ever make a splash like this…. espescially trading 2nd round picks… that was supposed to be a sin in miami !!!

  121. hnirobert says: Apr 14, 2010 11:00 PM

    @ JetChris,
    Ted Ginn owned Revis, no? I’d take Revis over any of our corners but let’s not be a super homer and think Revis is going to shut everyone down every week. STFU.

  122. hnirobert says: Apr 14, 2010 11:05 PM

    @ thehoodedone
    Second to the Pats? Maybe, I hear you 40 year old Punter is good. Face it, ALL your players want out. It’s hard to win when you’re not cheating. Here’s to Cam Wake taking out Tom’s legs again and Channing Crowder (of all people) ending a game with an interception.
