Brandon Marshall Still Available

| August 19th, 2009

The Denver Post is reporting that Brandon Marshall’s tumultuous relationship with the Denver Broncos may be coming to a breaking point.  Per the article:

Marshall has previously expressed —
through a post on his blog — distrust with the team’s medical staff
over a nagging hip injury from last season, and now said he is unhappy
with the team’s public relations staff. Marshall said he was
“disappointed” to hear from teammates they were told not to publicly
say they were happy Marshall was acquitted of misdemeanor battery
charges last Friday. Front office officials apologized to Marshall

“Some things you can’t control, and that situation, we feel like we
tried to handle that the best we could after that came up,” coach Josh
McDaniels said. “Just trying to get everyone’s mind back on football
and practice and doing what we need to do to get ready for Seattle.

The Daily News is reporting that the Jets are contemplating making a deal and various other clubs, including the Ravens, have been rumored to be interested.  With the Bears lacking the a 2010 first round draft pick, one wonders if depth on the defensive line or at linebacker might be used to get into the conversation.  This would be the kind of acquisition that would solidifiy the last question mark on the offense for many years to come.
