Jets won't talk about possible interest in Brandon Marshall

Over the past few days, reports and contradictions have emerged regarding the potential interest of the New York Jets in Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall.

During a conference call with reporters regarding the acquisition of running back LaDainian Tomlinson, G.M. Mike Tannenbaum was asked about the possible interest in Marshall, a restricted free agent.

Per Bob Glauber of Newsday, Tannenbaum wouldn’t address the issue, saying that that the team is “excited about the receivers we have.”

There’s a certain irony in Tannenbaum’s refusal to talk about Marshall.  Accused twice in the past four years of tampering with wideouts (former Patriots receiver Deion Branch and 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree), Tannenbaum is permitted to talk to or about Marshall, since he’s not under contract with the Broncos.

And even though the Jets swung a deal last year for Braylon Edwards, a move for Marshall could make sense — especially if the trade includes sending Edwards to Denver, where he’d be reunited with Brady Quinn.

  1. “especially if the trade includes sending Edwards to Denver, where he’d be reunited with Brady Quinn”
    Yeah, because that dynamic duo was something to behold in Cleveland. LMAO

  2. Good lord, we don’t want anything to do with Braylon Edwards in Denver. Come on, McDouchebag – PAY MARSHALL. That said, B-Marsh is exactly what a young QB in Sanchez needs. He is a big, physical receiver that makes things happen offensively after the cath and he always attacks the ball at its highest point, which will add to Sanchez’s confidence. It may be the key to avoiding the dreaded ‘sophomore slump’ since I don’t think Rex Ryan has done much to improve the offense thus far this offseason.

  3. Talk about a downgrade for the Broncos if they get Edwards for Marshall. Marshall was a pain in the ass but he caught everything that was even near him. Edwards only catches ever other ball that lands square in his hands.

  4. As a Jets fan I would loveeeee to ship Edwards out and grab Marshall !! That move has Super Bowl written all over it.

  5. i don’t think the Jets will give up Edwards, if anything it would be an asset if they were able to have him play opposite Marshall

  6. They were also “excited about the receivers” when the Braylon Edwards trade rumors started, so I wouldn’t put any faith in that statement.

  7. Edwards hated Brady Quinn.. He prospered when he had Anderson, because Anderson threw it vertically.
    The ironic part is over the past couple years, Edwards has forgotten how to catch a baall that comes to him on a descending angle. Imagine if Chad Pennington was his QB? He’d drop everything.

  8. Nice work there Tannenbaum. The Jets could really use a realy WR to compliment the awesome blocker they have in Edwards.

  9. As a Broncos fan I would really like to see Marshall get a long term deal in Denver. As a frequent reader of this site, I just want to see Marshall sign with someone, anyone so that we can stop having Florio and the boys make up rumors every other day as to where he might go.

    Wait, you’re being sarcastic right?
    Who’s going to throw to Marshall? Sanchez?!?!
    Yes Please make Sanchez throw, pleeeeeeeeeease!
    I love the Jets pre-season overconfidence! I could set my watch to it every year!

  11. @ Hellsgrumtyrant: you obviously haven’t watched Marshall play.
    He drops passes EVERY GAME (crossing patterns just before he is about to get hit–he is a total pussy. Anybody who hits women is a pussy.). That’s why Cutler was always upset with him.
    Look it up on the “youtube.”

  12. @mrzazz
    And a “#1” who can catch….Braylon sucks…so happy we got rid of him even if our core of recievers suck…

  13. You need a QB who can throw deep to utilize Brandon’s skills. Look, the Jets snuck up on some teams last year. That’s nice. It won’t happen this year. When teams learn to make Sanchez beat you, then you are looking at the clock striking midnight for this team.

  14. Florio writes: “There’s a certain irony in Tannenbaum’s refusal to talk about Marshall.”
    Of course if he had talked at Marshall Florio would have giggled like a school girl, then noted how it indicated that the Jets were not happy with Braylon Edwards, and then pointed out how this interest would only drive up the price for Marshall.

  15. When is somebody actually going to put an offer sheet on the table for this guy?
    Broncos seem to be letting the league set the market price for this guy, but no team is interested in doing it. Even though they only put a 1st Rounder on him (instead of a 1 and 3). Doesn’t seem like any team wants to take a chance on a guy that is one strike from a year long suspension.
    If this goes 30 more days, the Marshall will either: 1) play for his tag money, 2) Renegotiate with Denver, 3) Sit out or 4) risk being traded without a contract in hand from the new team. Those don’t seem like great options for him.

  16. FLORIO….He is under contract still, duh. I wish someone would just cut off your hands so we can all stop reading your nonsense.

  17. who ever thinks thatr schanez can’ t throw needs to go get a life. He can hit any throw down the field look what he did in the playoffs, if it wasn’t for the drop in sd by edwards he would have close to 300 yds and 2 scores. Give me a break, patriots are going down this year again i say 7-9 for them sounds right there bb what ever your name is.

  18. Braylon Edwards has the exact same diva problem as Brandon Marshall does. A trade involving the 2 makes no sense at all. Denver would resign Marshall before even thinking about trading for Edwards, who would assault another person after learning he isn’t the big shot in Denver either. Plus to give Marshall credit he cleaned up his act at the beginning of the season and was a team player and stayed out of trouble. Marshall will return to Denver.
