There was a report last month that linebacker Brandon Marshall was thinking about staying away from the voluntary portion of Broncos offseason workouts if he and the team didn’t agree on a long-term deal.
Marshall hasn’t gotten that deal and he’s just about out of time to find a team that will sign him to an offer sheet as a restricted free agent, but he has decided against skipping the team’s workouts. The team shared a picture of Marshall at the team’s facility on Twitter on Monday.
Marshall has not signed his restricted free agent tender, which was at the second-round level and would leave him set to make $2.553 million in 2016. Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the expectation is that Marshall will sign a waiver to take part in the workouts, which protects him financially against injury while he remains unsigned.
The deadline to sign an offer sheet with another team in April 22, so Marshall will lose an option to get the wheels moving toward a longer deal soon. With giving up a second-round pick a condition of signing him away from Denver, that remains an unlikely development and Marshall will likely wind up signing the tender before renewing his push for a lengthier and more lucrative deal.
