Marshall visits Jaguars, could pick new team Friday

Cornerback Richard Marshall unexpectedly became a free agent earlier this week, cut by the Dolphins as he was closing in on a $4.55 million base salary for 2013.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Marshall could pick his next team as soon as today.

Marshall visited the Jaguars on Friday, according to the source.  That follows a Thursday visit to the Chargers.

For now, the finalists are Jacksonville and San Diego.

In either city, Marshall would have an opportunity to crack the starting lineup.  In Miami, Marshall actually was on the first-string, but at that salary the Dolphins couldn’t justify keeping him.

    Richard Marshall? More like Richard Deputy since he’s never first in charge.

    The Jaguars are playing more like the Saguars because due to their quality of play will be sagging to last place in their division.

    I know you can’t judge a book by it’s cover but he has the look of someone that couldn’t spell cat if you spotted him the c.

    Good fit for the Jags, he plays physical game and Gratz isn’t ready to start. Nor is Cyprien. Vastly overrated, bad pick.

    San Diego or Jacksonville huh?

    Guess he’s basing his decision on somewhere where it’s 75 and sunny, low humidity and with a zero percent chance for a playoff birth

    If he picks the Jags I am sure thegreatgabbert will tell us it is because B Gabbert is on the team and will single handily against all odds lead them to victory. So Marshall knew that he was guaranteed a victory

    This is a picture in the manual on concussions labeled: Player Demeanor After Concussive On-Field Incident (dude got his bell rung) so team trainers and docs on sidelines know what to be aware of.

    That or the guy just always looks like cat is a hard word to spell.
