Brandon Marshall has regained his speed

Though Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall has been out of sight for most of an eventual offseason, which included being stabbed by his wife, Marshall has laid the foundation for a successful season season in Miami.

Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that Marshall has gotten his 40-yard dash time consistently under 4.5 seconds, and that he has reached a maximum speed of 22.5 miles per hour.

Kelly’s information comes from trainer Matt Gates.  Marshall’s camp otherwise has been silent since the 2010 season ended.

It won’t be silent once the games start in 2011, if Marshall can run 22.5 miles per hour.

  1. “Brandon Marshall has regained his speed”…….

    …..running away from his knife wielding wife.

  2. It dosen’t really matter, does it? Brandon Marshall won’t be effective in the Dolphins offense. They’re scheme suck, the wild cat is old, and they’re coaching staff is suspect. Chad Henne ????

    The Dolphins will have another sub-par year and serious changes will have to be made.

  3. Chad Henne can’t even throw the ball that fast. Maybe that was why they traded away Ginn…

  4. Bmarsh has a skill set to be one of the best wr’s ever, but hes a head case and a drama distraction. Time will tell but I dont think he will make Canton.(even w/ 22 catches in a game)

  5. It’s great that he can run fast again. Now if only he could learn how to catch the ball…..

    Great! Now he can work on his attitude and ball-catching ability. He had some key drops last year.

  7. Just under 4.5 by somebody that’s being paid by the athlete to make him faster and using a hand timer is probably not as good as the 4.55 he ran at the combine, electronic time.

    There was never any question about Marshall’s speed, he never was a burner by any means, it’s about his intelligence, heart, attitude, and hands… as far as I can tell, nothing has changed.

  8. Marshall needs to learn that crazy women aren’t worth it. Sure, for the most part they are good in bed, but in the end they’ll kill, or attempt to, kill you. I’m not saying that Marshall is 100% innocent in his domestic problems, but he hasn’t stabbed anyone…at least not yet.

    If Marshall can get sane people around him he’ll do fine. To the people who knock him for dropping balls last season, I suspect there are a couple of good expanations for this.

    A) He was in his first year of learning a new offense.

    B) He’s had to adjust to three different throwinf styles. (Penny, Henne, Thiggy)

    C) IMO I think he still has issues with the nerve damage he suffered when he cut his arm in 2007 (2008?). I believe I’ve read where he said that he played an entire season with a numb hand. I’ve had nerves severed in my shoulder when I had surgery. It’s been over 7 years and I still have numbness in that shoulder and even somewhat in the top of my bicep. I was initially numb from my neck to my forearm and it took years for some of the feeling to come back.

    That might be an issue if he hasn’t had any good seasons since then. I’m not sure when he was stabbed, but even if it was after the 2008 season, that means he still has a 100-catch season on his resume AFTER that incident. If it was 2007, then he has 2 100-catch seasons under his belt since then.
