Brandon Marshall wants to stay with Broncos, grow bank account

The Broncos didn’t have long to celebrate their Super Bowl title before discussion turned to whether they’d be able to keep key members of their defense once free agency arrives.

Von Miller, Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan are all on track to become unrestricted free agents and their futures have generated the most discussion in the last few days. Brandon Marshall, Trevathan’s partner at inside linebacker, isn’t on the same track as his teammates.

Marshall is set to become a restricted free agent and said Friday that he’d like to both remain with the Broncos and see a bump in his bank account in 2016.

“I would definitely love my bank account to grow in these next few months – I would love that,” Marshall said on NFL Network. “Me and my agent have been talking, we’ll see what happens. But I would love to stay in Denver. I grew up a Broncos fan. I love the Broncos. I love the organization and community, so I’d love to stay in Denver. We’ll definitely see what happens.”

If the Broncos don’t sign Marshall to a new contract in the near future, they’ll certainly be using a restricted free agent tender to ensure that Marshall doesn’t leave without having a chance to match another offer or getting draft pick compensation if they choose not to meet the price.

Given how well Marshall, a 2012 fifth-round pick of the Jaguars, played in 2015, a first- or second-round tender seems more likely than the original round number and the way things fall with the unrestricted free agents will likely determine whether the Broncos try to do more than that with Marshall this offseason.

    This happens to every team. It’s not like the Broncos are the only one with a salary cap. Deal with it.

    Think they give him a 2nd round tender and let Trevathan walk. 3-4 ILBs are relatively replaceable and their depth is solid, they need the $ for Malik/Von/Osweiler.

    Marshal has earned it. The guy missed one tackle the entire year.

    This guy is a stud. Anyone who only knew the other Brandon Marshall before this year definitely knows about this guy know. Always could ball, but took it to another level with that defense taking it to another level. It would be a huge mistake to let him walk, odds are slim you’d find a guy like him with the pick you replaced him with even if it was say a late first rounder. If i were a bronco fan he would be my number 2 priority behind Miller.

    The headline indicates he must not be a Bernie fan, or, he would have said he wanted to grow everyone else’s bank account. LOL

    He is a tremendous player on a team filled with tremendous players on defense. They can’t all come back. I wish they could, but like floratiotime suggests…you just deal with it. Go Broncos!

    Just reading that last paragraph tells you a lot about why teams are the way they are. The Jags drafted him in the fifth round but played sparingly in five games his rookie season. He was cut before the 2013 season and signed by the Broncos to their practice squad and the rest, as they say, is history.

    –What made the Jags draft him in the fifth round then cut him after one year?
    –The Broncos signed him but he was on their practice squad until Von Miller was injured but only played in one game in 2013.
    –In 2014 and 2015 he had over 100 tackles.

    Did it take him a few years for the light to go on? It makes my wonder what happened in the first few years that he was only on their practice squads. Is it an issue of effort? If so, what do you think will happen when he gets a big contract? Just something to consider.

    It’s hard to condemn the Jags for releasing him since Denver had him on the practice squad for a year also. It makes me wonder if it was an issue of him realizing he wasn’t in college anymore. Who knows. Only time will tell.

    Okay, you say he’s a stud, but he’s an idiot if he thinks Denver is best ever Defense.

    His team beat a first time SB QB who had a good year, whose line could not block for him.

    Denver beat the Panthers with the best offense production of the year.

    Seattle beat Denver who had the best offense production in NFL of all time.

    So, the best ever talk…that dog don’t hunt!

    The Bears beat Tony Eason, the Broncos beat Cam, MVP, need I say more?

  10. scrotiemcb says: Feb 12, 2016 2:20 PM

    Cam Newton’s O-line apparently blocked pretty well for him in 18 other contests this year.

    It’s sort of a pattern. Play Denver, and all the sudden the whole world notices that said team has catastrophic issues along the o-line.

  11. broncodanny says: Feb 12, 2016 2:31 PM

    And btw…before beating the MVP, Denver beat Big Ben and the supposed GOAT Brady… Not too shabby lineup of Qb’s. 2015 Broncos D BOAT

  12. skawh says: Feb 12, 2016 2:39 PM

    Well, Denver did essentially the same to Brady’s OL, and it was well known that NE’s OL was patchwork. So what are you saying?

    I still stand by defeating the best Offensive team of NFL all time, for the 2013 season, trumps beating the best NFL offensive team of only the 2015 year. I mean, where is the logic in saying best ever defense simply because you beat a team 24-10 on 17 points of turnovers?

    43-8 is more a beat down than 24-10

    whenwilliteverend,

    You bring up something I’ve long wondered about the scouting / drafting process. I’m just a fan and there may be others with line of sight into this.

    By the same token, there are those players that are given a low grade out of college that perform great for their first year or two and then kinda bust. So I often ask myself, was the scout right? If his job is to rate players based on a 4-6 year career arc and he missed at the front end, but is ultimately correct, I’d say the scout did a nice assessment.

    I’m sure this dynamic varies by position. I’m sure there are also politics involved. “Yes, the practice squad guy is out performing our #2 pick, but we’re invested in out #2 pick” etc..

    Maybe PFT can write about stuff like this in the offseason?

  14. broncodanny says: Feb 12, 2016 2:59 PM

    Entire 2015 defensive body of work. # 1 in almost all defensive categories plus the gauntlet of playoff Qb’s faced….. All this adds up to best d of all time!

    SeaChicken Fans….WORST FANS ON THE PLANET. Let us Broncos fans enjoy this. You did all of your showboating two years ago. The biggest thing you should be worried about is a pass that was thrown on 1st and goal on the 2. That is the biggest thing you should still be kicking yourself and your OC for. Both defenses played great games. Seattle of 2013 was a great defense. The 2015 Broncos was just as great. None of them compare to the 85 Bears. That is just truth. So stop living in the past, and stop being a normal Seahawks fan trying to boast your team as the best ever.

    Remember, if you were actually a fan back then, when the Seahawks were part of the AFC West, DENVER OWNED SEATTLE. True.

    I thought Brandon Marshall left the Broncos years ago and now plays for the Jets? Why is he going back there?kkkv
