A year ago, then-Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall acted like an idiot in practice, angering his coaches by, among other things, punting the ball instead of handing it to the ball boys.
That incident was the beginning of the end for Marshall in Denver. Now Marshall plays for the Dolphins, and although he has said he’s a happy camper in Miami, on Monday he was back to his old ways.
Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post reports that toward the end of practice Monday, Marshall dropped a pass and then picked up the ball and punted it over the fence. After that he stood by himself on the sideline for the rest of the practice.
Neither Marshall nor coach Tony Sparano discussed the incident afterward, but after Marshall dropped two passes in the Dolphins’ preseason opener, this could be an early warning sign that all is not well with the receiver who got $24 million guaranteed after the Broncos traded him to the Dolphins this offseason.
