Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall had been practicing without a contract this offseason. Now he’s done with that.

Marshall and the Broncos have agreed to a four-year contract, the team announced. Mike Klis of KUSA reports that the deal includes a $10 million signing bonus.

As a restricted free agent, Marshall declined to sign his $2.533 million tender offer this year, but he and the Broncos have been in regular contract talks, and now a deal is done that will keep him in Denver beyond just this year.

A 2012 fifth-round pick of the Jaguars, Marshall was cut after one year in Jacksonville and barely played the next year after he caught on in Denver. But he has consistently improved, and last year started all 16 games on the league’s best defense. The Broncos view him as a building block for that defense for many years.

  1. Keep wasting money on players that didn’t win you a super bowl, Horse Mouth. Von is gonna cash in somewhere and make you donkeys sorry 🙂

  2. Looks like the Broncos are giving up on signing Von long term. I can’t imagine the kind of insane coin he will command on the open market after single handedly winning the Super Bowl for the Broncos last season. After all, a former Bronco that was worse than geriatric Peyton somehow got $72mil for 8 games of average play

  3. That will solidify the middle of the defense for years to come. With Davis, Nelson and Zaire Anderson also on the roster Denver has some of the best depth at the most important positions. (‘cept QB, of course)
    Go Broncos! Golden Champs!

    You realize Brandon Marshall is one of the best ILBs (especially in coverage) in the league right?

  5. Good for Marshall. I know Von will be soon. Elway paid Clady & Thomas prior to the deadline and Von is way more valuable than either of those guys

  6. Not that I care about the Broncos, but where are they finding all this money? They must be well over the cap by now and still have more players to sign. Just asking.

  7. Theashleyguy: when you have guys restructure and free up $30 million in cap space by no longer having Manning and Clady helps. Plus, I would assume they are going to put most of the money within the next couple year since we may not have to worry about paying a QB big money. To add to that, Denver is projected to have $60 million in cap space next year before Von signs. And obviously that number goes down a little because Marsh just signed

    He is not a free agent this year. They locked him up to a long term deal before he becomes a free agent next off season. His new salary (except for signing bonus) won’t begin until next season so it won’t count against the salary cap this year but will next year.

    Let Von cash in on your team..let me guess..the lions? jaguars? eagles? Dream Team 3.0?

    We got Shane Ray if Von decides to leave so we’ll be just fine.

    Sorry got his contract confused with another. He agreed to play under his tender $2.5M and change for this season and I believe that is all that will count towards the cap. Which would be just fine with him I am sure since he just got $15M as a fully guaranteed signing bonus.

  11. This certainly means they don’t sign Von Miller. Elway the back stabber is at again. He will force Von to play under franchise tag for the next 2 years. After that he will be past his prime and teams will shy away from giving him a big contract. Just like Elway backstabbed Tebow after a playoff win, he is backstabbing Miller after a SB win.

  12. This is a good indication where Elway is going in the Von Miller Situation. Miller overplayed his hand and Elway is going to hold his feet to the fire now. That is, no long term contract except on Elway’s terms, no trade, take or leave it one year franchise offer.
