Lawyer says Brandon Marshall will talk when “no contact” order is dropped

The authorities want to talk to Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall regarding the events that resulted in Marshall being stabbed last month by his wife. But Marshall has refused to cooperate.

Marshall’s lawyer says that Marshall will talk if and when the “no contact” order imposed against his wife last month is dropped.

“Brandon didn’t ask for the no contact order, has never felt threatened by his wife, and misses her,” Harvey Steinberg told Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.  “When [they] drop the no contact order he’ll be more than willing to sit down and discuss this matter, bringing some clarity to this unfortunate misunderstanding.”

If Marshall doesn’t talk, the charges against his wife could be dropped.

Apart from the “no contact” order, it’s possible that Marshall and Steinberg realize that anything Marshall says could spark separate legal issues, given that Michi Nogami-Marshall reportedly claimed that she stabbed her husband in self-defense.  If that’s true, it’s possible that Marshall may have done something before getting stabbed that could cause him to face legal scrutiny.

Marshall, who reportedly claimed that he injured himself by falling on a lamp, also could land in hot water if he tells the police anything other than the full and complete truth.  If he says nothing at all, there’s no way he can tell the authorities anything that isn’t true.

    I mean, why would Marshall feel threatened by someone that attacked him with a knife? It’s The MAN trying to hold him down!

    Miami police- Let it go, Brandon isn’t going to cooperate. Don’t waste your time.

    Wow, I’m stunned all of this happened. I mean, BMarsh, of all people? But seriously, at least he’s grown up a bit. The old Marshall woulda never shut up after being stabbed.

    No contact with common household implements.

    Dude, keep you mouth shut and force the police to drop the case, then take all the knives away from your wife before something real bad happens. Bill

    the police should stay out of it,if the person that got cut up don’t want to talk to them then leave it alone i know he is just protecting his wife from being charged with a crime for something that he did or atleast started if they want to move on then so be it

    They clearly have a complicated relationship. I’ve had friends like that. I wish them the best.

    This guy is stupid. When this relationship goes bad again, and it will, his wife won’t hesitate to try and land his a$$ in jail. Guys can really be stupid.

    There is no way this doesn’t end poorly and will be his own fault. It is more likely that the preacher who confused May and October is right, than BM not ending up dead or in jail in the next 5 years.

    We all know Marshall had PLENTY of blame in this situation behind closed doors. Now the next time he hits her he can call on “self defense” to save the day. She now has a history of serious violence. He is basically getting himself a “get out of jail free” card for next time he cheats or puts his hands on her.

    trade marshall to the jets

    Sounds like he is not wanting to reveal he may have provoked her in to stabbing him. The sooner this can be resolved the faster the healing can take place so it would be in his best interest to get this over and done with and work with the authority’s. However, it sounds like he has something to hid.
